Review: Nitro WACO YMF-5D
Review WACO YMF-5D Model.
The box arrived in excellent condition (Double Boxed). All of the items were mounted in a sealed plastic bags, installed in a cardboard box…The assembly went very smoothly, without any problems…Step#5 needs to be revised…why install the STABILIZERS..?
When on Step#11 you have to glue the RUDDER to the STABILIZER, then install it
on Step#12…? I would recommend that all the STRUTS be installed on the TOP WING,
rather then noted on Step#6..it would make it a little easier..I did find that the PA2.3*
20mm screws are too short..it should be PA2.3*25mm. That is the only exception that
I found while building the WACO…While installing the TOP WING..minor adjustment
was require to square the WING with the STAB…
Test flew the airplane..CG was set at 75mm…flew very well, very stable flying in a
10 mph wind…This is a winner.

Just ordered the Wako. Looking for any other tips for building and flying. Uses a 640kv motor on 4 cells with a 40amp ESC. I have a feeling that the 40amp ESC may be a tad light on this power package... any other thoughts?
