Just completed the maiden.....Awesome stock power, clean aerobatics, gentle landings. It cruises at half throttle and has a commanding presence in the air. A keeper! My photographer was sleeping at 6:05am....photos to come later.

Best,
Tony

Post flight inspection revealed a loose lock nut on the wheel screw. The screw backed out. I pulled apart the wheel pants and applyed loctite to the nut. Problem solved. Double check the nut.

Best,
Tony

Thanks Tony and Evelyn! I really like the looks of this one! This hobby (addiction!) is killing my wallet and I'm just about out of places to store them!

I want one :)

Who has these in stock?
I'm in New Mexico and I don't care what the shipping cost would be

Thanks for the great feedback! I'll make sure to have Evelyn read the replies...she'll appreciate the comments. I now need to invest in a real camera for Evelyn to use. Trying to get a clean in flight photo with a $100 point & shoot camera is challenging but she has done a great job!

Check PW-RC or RC Castle...they may have the Waco.

Thanks again,
Tony

Progress report......I'm not done! LOL It's coming along though. I only made 1 template for painting, so I can only do one panel a day. I'll have it finished next week for sure. I can't wait to fly this thing!

RC castle doesn't carry it but Philip at PW RC said he is considering ordering a few and will let me know!

Luckily, I have shade where I fly. I also put a couple coats of WBPU over the whole thing.
