HobbyKing Waco SRE Biplane 1300mm Balsa (ARF)

From HobbyKing:

If there are a few iconic aircraft that immediately come to mind when we think of the Golden Age of aviation, one of them must be the Waco.

Hobbyking is very pleased to offer scale enthusiasts one of the finest Waco aircraft ever produced, the fabulous Waco cabin SRE.

At 1300mm wingspan this is a beautiful 1/8th scale model of this classic aircraft and like the original it is loaded with features.

To start with this model is a builders work of art and truly a testament to the construction of ARF scale aircraft.  Pre-assembled from precision CNC machined plywood and balsa parts and finished in authentic period colors using highest quality covering.  The pre-assembled fuselage and wings go together easily and the high quality factory painted cowl, wheel pants and scale landing gear are all included as well as all the hardware required to complete assembly.

In the air our Waco just exudes the luxurious lines of the original and has no vices, in fact it flies just like a trainer.  With its high wing configuration and large wing area, it is suitable for beginners with take offs and landings being very easy especially for a tail dragger.

There is no doubt that the original Waco SRE was a classic in every sense of the word and this model certainly does the full sized version justice in both finish and performance.   If you are looking for a unique and quality model of a Golden Age airplane then you’ve just found it, the Hobbyking Waco SRE!

  1. Hi, Can you help find out some more info on this model? I’m trying to find out who makes this for HobbyKing. They (HK) don’t offer a manual for this kit and I’ve got one sitting on my bench waiting to get started on it. Some of it’s obvious, but i’d like some clarification on some other parts. Since writing the article, do you have any more info than I can find?


  2. I looked at your manual online. It seems not so complete. Is there a new manual? Are the wings removable?
