Chris,

Thank you for the Waco!
I love flying her.
She almost never stays home.

I'm guessing most of the livery (IE, the red) is painted on and not decals, right?

Is there an easy way to get the paint off of these without damaging the foam finish? I'm definitely going to grab the Hoover decals too.

I've found that HZ ETAs are usually pretty accurate...

I heard a similar timeframe from a source I would trust. This assumes they didn't sell more pre-orders than the first container that lands here.

didn't bother reading 10 pages but no mention on the video, does this use differential thrust as well as the rudder? it seemed to have a tight turning circle on the ground.

No it does not have differential thrust. The steerable nose wheel makes it possible to make a tight turn on the ground.

Just ordered my first UMX airplane, love the Aero Commander and like many other have mentioned, I enjoyed watching Bob Hoover perform.

Really difficult to resist as I just added a Dx6e to the fleet and realized I have the E-flite 800 mah batt from the CX2. This smaller box will also be handier for sneaking into the basement!
