    RE: Buiding pics Waco YMF-5 Barth Modellbau

    Cesar and skylarkmk1,

    thanks for answer, I know, most difficult will be to make the connection-point with a ball link.

    I will make a L-form tin, with a hard-solded thread-muff, where the ball-link is screwed in, sorry my bad english


    Regards
    Bernie

    RE: Buiding pics Waco YMF-5 Barth Modellbau

    Hi All,

    Does anyone have any idea of making functional front cockpit door? It seems that I have to cutout the upper left side of the longeron between former 507 and 508 and make another former right after 508. I am worried about if this is going to affect the airframe structure. Your input regarding this issue is appreciated. Thank you all!

    RE: Buiding pics Waco YMF-5 Barth Modellbau

    Hi Cesar,

    I attached here with two pictures for your reference,

    The top view with red line area shows the front cockpit area, it is located on top of both 507 and 508 bulkheads....
    The side view with red line area shows the front cockpit door, I may have to cutout the 501 longeron to make functional door...

    I hope this is clear enough for you to figure out what I am trying to solve

    Hi RCWalker,

    I think if you placed, were you cut out the longeron 507, a extra doubler in the fuse just below the underside of the door its oke. Also the sheeting of the fuse give extra strength.

    RE: Buiding pics Waco YMF-5 Barth Modellbau

    Today I placed the tailwheel with the springs on the fuse. It was not so easy to get it worked out. The tension of the springs are importend to get the right action on the tail wheel. so maybe not really scale but functional.

    RE: Buiding pics Waco YMF-5 Barth Modellbau

    Hi Cesar and others,

    as you can see on the photos, I was very busy in the last week. Some works in the next week, and the upper-wing will be ready.

    The ribs in the new kit are very filigrane and you must be very careful to handle with it. All is O.K with the kit, I´m happy, all fit´s

    together and all is complete!!!!!! The angle from the wings of 2° to upway was exactly, without any corrections.


    Regards

    Bernie

    Hi, looks like you are coming along very well. The kit you have has many improvments over the kit I built. I like the way the ribs have been routed out, mine were solid. I also like the fiberglass landing gear fairings. Mine had to be made out of wood and then sanded to shape. It looks like Peter Barth has been busy making all the improvements in his new production runs of this kit. Did the tail fin and rear elevators come pre-built with the holes already drilled in them???

    On another point I was flying my Waco today. it has been a long time since I last flew mine. I had a bad accident a couple of weeks ago and could not fly anything till my arm got well. I must say that flying one of these birds is just so much pleasure. You will block out all the problems in life and get lost in the flight when you fly yours. What a great hobby we have don't you think??

    RE: Buiding pics Waco YMF-5 Barth Modellbau

    Hi Steve,

    I hope you´re fine now completely after your accident, it´s a bad thing and I hope, never have something.
    What a great hobby we have .....That´s right, it trains a lot of in our advanced age..ha ha ha!

    The Rudder and the elevator are to built in same way. But you can now built the stab more scale like,
    adjustable like the origin, in the plan you can adjust it with a screw, but I want to make it with a DC-gearmotor
    or by a strong servo. By the servo version you have the advantage, to adjust it during the flight.

    I wish you best convalescense for your arm
    Regards from southern germany

    THat looks good Benie. I have build a Pitts from Weiershauser that also have ribs that were cut out or routed out, but with the Waco they were were solid.

    What could be the reasen why that is done? Is it for the weight or strength? Anyhow it looks better I think.


    For Steve;
    Great to hear that it go better with you Steve and as Bernie say get well soon!

    Cesar.

    RE: Buiding pics Waco YMF-5 Barth Modellbau

    Hi Ruud,

    I think, the reason of this cutted ribs is in first line the weight. Second is in my opinion the more professional look,
    Genesis does it this way since years.
    Now in this phase the wing seems a little bit fragile, but I think, after planking the nose of the wing, it will be better.


    Regards
    Bernie


    Edit: I forgot to ask you, wich servos do yo use for your ailerons? And do you use 2 or 4 servos.
    I´m planing the 4 servos version, 4xHS645MG with 11kg torque, and I don´t know, is it enough?

    Bernie I used 2 servos on my wings, 1 one each side HS5955TG 330oz @6.0 volts seems to be more than enough.

    RE: Buiding pics Waco YMF-5 Barth Modellbau

    Hi Bernie,

    I have not used the counterweights on the ailerons so I have used on each aileron a servo, Peter Barth adviced me: without the counterweights each aileron a MG 8-10 kg servo.
    And your choice for the servo's are the same as mine, I have also used the HS645MG for the ailerons.

    grüßen,

    Ruud.

    Hello Alex,

    Yes the Waco is, besides a few small things, ready for maiden.

    Now a litle bit screw up one's courage and go......

    The last thing I have done is build in the reciever, powerbox and battery and connecting the all thing together.

    Hi all,

    I had a little work past week, now the upper wing is ready, grope sanded and installed
    the servos with the plugs and wires.
    After planking the nose of the wing, it´s very stabil now, no more torsion, I´m glad about this

    Cesar, I wish you luck for your maiden, if you are ready [sm=thumbup.gif][sm=thumbup.gif][sm=thumbup.gif]

    Bernie , Hi Steve here. Have you started your Waco yet????? I just got a 30% Stearman kit. It will be about as big as my Waco. Just opened the boxes. There is so much wood in there that I decide to put the kit away till winter time before starting the build. Need to find more space to build it. My garage is full with a car and the Waco and my 30% Yak 54. maybe I need to build a bigger garage before starting another big model. Either that or move the car outside full time. I will asking my friend Kris who lives in Rotterdam a lot of questions on this one. He has already built this kit. He is a master builder so I have a good teacher to ask questions.
    Have a great day Bernie.

    RE: Buiding pics Waco YMF-5 Barth Modellbau

    Hi all together,

    @Steve
    I´m so glad, to have a big room to built my waco, no problem to fit the wings and the fuselage together on my
    building-board. If you built in your garage, isn´t it cold in winter? Edit: oh, sorry, you lucky guy are living in California
    What about your arm, are you well and healthy?
    Today I have the problem, from the lower wing the right half is a little bit warped, because I put it from the building-board,
    to make planking the nose area. After this, I realized, something is wrong, the front wing-end is 1/3 inch higher, than the rear wing-end.
    I fixed it on the board under tension and sprayed the nose with water, I think, my first prognosis is, it works.
    I have to wait, until it gets dry.

    @RCWalker

    I began with both wings, the upper is nearly ready and the lower is in progress.
    When I start to built the fuselage, you will see photos above.

    @ Redcesar

    What about your maiden, some news?
