New Product
Dynam Waco YMF-5D

Here's a few photos of the New Dynam Waco YMF-5D available from Nitroplanes.com. The Waco is powered by a BM3720A-650KV motor with a 40A ESC and uses a 14.8V 25C 2200mAh battery. The wingspan is 50in.

I painted the engine, prop, inside wing struts and hardware. Another amazing deal for only $109 during Nitroplanes 15% off New Arrivals sale last week. Looking forward to the maiden.

UPDATE: I just completed the maiden at 6:05am and only one word....AWESOME! Amazing stock performance and clean aerobatics. It flies around at half power and landings are gentle. Inflight photos to come later this week...my photographer was sleeping.

Best,
Tony

Awesome!

I've taken mine to two different flying fields and each time I taxi back from a flight, the feedback from fellow pilots has been great.

Best,
Tony

It took almost two week for it to sell out at Nitroplanes. Folks are starting to see how nice it is. I'm sure your video helped.

Best,
Tony

Can I ask someone that has this airplane to take a measurement for me? Could someone put the waco on a table and lift the tail so it is level, then measure the distance from the motor shaft to the table.

I want to know the exact clearance before I purchase it, so I can see what size prop I can fit on it. Why? I want to use a large prop on 3S for more of a scale speed and because I have dozens of 3S batteries. I do this often with good results but I don't want to buy this if I can't run a larger / slower prop. Thanks!
