With its instantly recognizable trim scheme and 72" wingspan, the Waco ARF can cause a sensation with just a slow fly-by! A scratch- or kit-built Waco could take weeks or months to complete, but you can have this sport-scale ARF assembled and in the air in just a few days. Parts are included for building it as a 2-seat trainer or single-seat mail carrier, and your engine options are wide open. Tubes ensure that the horizontal stab is perfectly aligned, and a hidden ring secures the cowl without screw holes. The main landing gear features fiberglass fairings and wheel pants; other fiberglass parts such as the wing struts and cabanes add an authentic finished look to this timeless design.
