The Greatest of the Golden Age Bipes!

The number of sleek, fast aircraft boomed during the Golden Age of Aviation, but none could compare with the Waco. Today, the Waco YMF-5D offers the same timeless good looks and the benefits of modern technology. Great Planes’ replica recreates its smooth, flowing lines and classic style in sport-scale detail, painted fiberglass and rich MonoKote film.

The cowl features a realistic replica radial and factory-painted blister detail that adds to looks while reducing finishing time. A hidden ring secures the cowl without screw holes, preserving scale looks.

Tubes for the horizontal stabilizer simplify alignment and installation, reducing assembly time.

Painted fiberglass parts — including the cowl, struts, cabanes, wheel pants and fairings — ensure seamless looks and fast installation.

Each aileron has a dedicated servo, ensuring swift, dependable response, shorter linkages and easier installation and adjustment.

The Waco offered more than good looks. It was used as a 3-seat trainer as well as a mail carrier. Parts to create both versions are included and simple to install.

Engine options are wide open. The O.S® FS-120S-E offers the best in 4-stroke power and scale sound. The low-cost DLE-30 provides true gasoline economy and the ease of electronic ignition.

Installing the replica radial takes a few minutes, but the cowl blister detail is factory-applied and ready for admiration. What’s more, there are no screw holes to distract from the cowl’s good looks. A hidden ring secures it “invisibly!”

The main gear is a scale version of the ‘34 original. Other painted fiberglass parts include wheel pants, struts and cabanes and fairings to ensure smooth transitions from the fuselage to the wings and landing gear.
