40% Scale WACO YMF-5 Biplane — A Video Interview

40% Scale WACO YMF-5 Biplane — A Video Interview

 

Among the prettiest of classic biplanes, this AMR 40% Scale Waco YMF-5 was built by Dave Collis who came all the way down from Canada to take both the “Best Civilian Aircraft” and runner up “Critic’s Choice” awards at the Monster Planes 2011 event in Lakeland, FL. A big Moki radial engine swings an impressive 40×18 prop! Model Airplane News contributor Rich Uravitch talkes to Dave about his his fantastic giant-scale RC project.

  1. HELLO, SURE LOVED THE VIDEO OF THE WACO. THANK YOU DAVID

  2. What part of “Canada” are you from Dave?

    I saw this plane when it was only a motor in Houston, British Columbia, Canada.

    The motor alone was very impressive. I look forward to seeing the rest of the craft in person.

    I love how Canada is such a particular place for Americans. I don’t think they realize how big Canada is and that most people are incapable of understanding the concept of what Canada is as an idea or as a piece of imense realestate

    I have been to Florida and I can find it on a map 🙂

  3. HI……NICE PIECE OF WORK ……REGARDS. RICHARD TANIS

  4. Great looking plane Dave. You’ve got to bring it to the High Country Flyers “Big Bird” next summer.
    I wish I could afford one.
    Dave Longworth.

  5. Hello Dave! Good to hear you did so well at Lakeland. Will look forward to seeing both you and your Waco at Vernon this coming September. From your “next door” RV neighbours at the Vernon flying field last Labour Day weekend. Roger & Barb

  6. Terrific job. Looks great.Mac McKinney ATP pilot
