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!

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!

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