Magnificent Waco YMF-5 Biplane — Video Interview

Oct 30, 2013 2 Comments by

Mitch Epstien has been building and flying giant scale planes for many years and he has been a successful scale competitor competing at Top Gun for several years. One of Mitch’s favorite airplanes is his 1/3-scale Waco YMF-5 biplane built from the AMR laser-cut kit.


Featured on the cover of Model Airplane News (December 2010), Mitch’s amazing Waco has an incredible amount of details.

Special thanks go out to the members of the Central CT RC Club in Farmington, CT for the exclusive use of their beautiful flying field for the production of this video.


Powered by a giant Moki 5-cylinder radial engine, Mitch’s behemoth has amazing power.
