    RE: WACO YMF

    r/c John,

    If you haven't done so, go to the supplimental site House of Moy http://www.houseofmoy.com/waco/ . On it you will find both jpg files and dxf files. You may find that some programs have trouble opening the dxf files, I did, printed them out and now can't reopen them[sm=confused.gif]. However the files are for the 1/5th scale parts, but when printed out the 3" reference line was only 2-3/4" (about 1/5.45) scale. They will work, but need to be re-scaled so the 3" line equals 2-1/2" (1/6th scale). If re-scaling from the printed 2-3/4", it works out to about 91%. If re-scaling from 3", it is about 83.3%. The jpg files will also print out, but again will need to be re-sized as above. Find a good copier that has scaling capabilities and bring a calculator. Or get the plans from the AMA, go to a copy place like Kinko's and re-scale all sheets to the desired size.

    Just a couple of things from one who reads this thread every day, but rarely says much.
    I appreciate all the wonderful help from such knowledgable folks out there.
    When disagreements occur, I agree with my mom(If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!)
    I love the look of the T shirts and can't wait to receive them.
    Even though the quality of most ARFs has improved, you still get lesser quality than the older kits. That's why I cherish my stash of old PICA kits.

    I also cherish my stash of the PICA Waco bipes. I am not going to build any of them any time soon, since I have begun cutting my own kits. The wood and the quality of the cuts are much better. I may, at some point put the kits up for grabs, or may just gift them to some who would appreciate them. (settle down ....I'm not going to make that decision for some time) I wish to thank Jay for his hard work in getting the shirts for us. He has gone above and beyond to make this happen.

    r/c John,

    If you call the AMA Plans Service, they may be able to re-size the plans to 1/6th. According to the answer in the FAQs, you have to call to find out and to get a price quote. The phone # is (765) 287-1256, ext. 507.

    Due to long hours at work this week it looks like Monday (6-18) will be the soonest they will go out. I have them here and packaging them still needs to be done. They look great.

    Take your time with mine. I will get them when you get time to do it. I totally understand. Think about what we talked about (you coming down next April for Top Gun). Frank puts on a first class show, and I'm proud to have been part of it.

    DOC,

    You just did..... If you look back to page 110 (I only bring the list forward every 10 pages due to the size of the post) you will find that you will now be known as Waco Brother #53. Welcome, and keep up the good work. Anything that we can do to assist you, please sing out, and please get involved in the furball.....Contact damifino (Brother #25) for ordering the shirts.

    RE: WACO YMF

    A big hello to all

    I charged up the 1/6 Waco last night as I had today off, went to the field this morning and fired her up she was running good my buddy was getting ready to set her down when I lost all controls the motor running but every thing was dead. Well better on the ground then in the air. I came home and took her apart the battery was dead it was only about a year and a half old. In the trash can it went [:@] I will replace it with a 6V this time.

    On the good side I finished cutting out my wing ribs have a table full of balsa all I need to get is some glue and I'll get started building.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Can anyone post close up pix of the tailwheel and linkage for the full scale YMF-5? The aileron linkages several pages back were terrific for my Genesis 1/3d build. I also want to replicate the tailwheel. I've got photos covered with the fairings but none "nekkid". Mitch Waco brotherhood #100 AMA CFII

    There are tailwheel pics in this monster somewhere. I think they are several pages before the aileron pictures.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Kind of hard to tell which is the model and which is the full scale is it not? Guys this is one of the things that was so impressive about being at Top Gun this year. This is the caliber of models that were prevelant there.

    They look great.

    Damn right, they do. WE got ours today at the WACO FLY-IN and have already recieved very positive comments from others on how damn good they look. Thanks a bunch, Jay. We (Ken and I) are getting ready to wear them to the Friday night dinner at Creve Coeur Airport. Things are great here at the fly-in, I have filled two 1 Gig cards and Ken is on his second 1 gig card. So far there are 30 WACO's at the field (more expected tomorrow); the kicker is that only one of them is a 1984 YMF-5, and it is a new Classic.

    Ken got a ride for about 45 minutes in a UPF-7, flew up and along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.

    Unfortunately we are unable to download pictures from the hotel computer and will post them when we get home.

    Jay, Thanks again for the shirts

    RE: WACO YMF

    Hello All

    I have started working on the wing and I have a few questions. The wing mount blocks call for maple I have some oak i was thinking of using will that work as well or should I pick up the maple?
    Also I used 5/32 balsa for the ribs and I'm thinking maybe I should have cut some holes in them to lighten them up?
    One more things in the past I have used white or yellow glue to build with it takes a little more time to dry but I have had good results with it. I have not read any thing about glue preference and would like to hear what you have to say about this.
    As always your help is appreciated.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Dan,

    The ribs can be lightened, but don't get carried away. I would try to use the Maple if you can find some (try Home Depot or Lowes or even Michaels or Wal-Mart) in the craft departments. The Maple is not as prone to splitting as is oak, and it is a little lighter as well. As to glue preferences, I think it is more a matter of personal preferences, but I don't like C/A especially with accelerator. I would rather see you use one of the aliphatics such as Titebond II or one of the other water based yellow glues. This is especially true if you are going to use a finishing resin on the sheeted surfaces. Resin does not want to cure where the accelerated C/A has been used for some reason. It takes overnight to cure the yellow glues, but you have additional working time, and I believe a better joint. It also sands better than the instant glued joints. Them's my opinions, and are worth what they cost you.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Well, never let it be said that insanity doesn't reign in this house hold! I am attaching a couple of photos that all of you will recognize almost instantly ! Yes, it is a 1/5 scale Pica WACO, that I purchased today. I have not inventoried the kit, but there are only a couple of wing ribs that have been punched out and they are in the box. The airplane belonged to one of our club members who has had it for some time but it was never built. Included in my purchase today was the fiberglass cowl along with the ABS cowl. All the little bags with small pieces are in the kit and 99% of the wood still has the rubberbands around it. From what I know, this must be an earlier kit as it has the 13 page instruction manual, and is the "blue box" The die cutting is very good and the kit appears to be in very good condition.

    Well local technical issues have delayed the posting of photos. hope to have them up in a couple of minutes.

    Computer has been tricked into doing what I want once again !!

    RE: WACO YMF

    Bill and the rest,

    We (Ken and I) have been talking, sweating, taking pictures, sweating, been asked about the Brotherhood, sweating, explaining what we are all about, sweating and have talked with quite a few RC/Full size guys and invited them to look us up. I got my UPF-7 ride today, what a blast. Had to take my hat off, it was in the way for pictures (and my head is a little more aerodynamic with out a hat). Did I mention that we have been sweating in the 95° heat, low breezes and high humidity? Pictures in a few days, will have to sort them out a bit. Most everybody that flew in will be leaving tomorrow to go home.

    A special event for a very nice gentalman from England, Mr. Desmond Ponrose, a former deHavilland (sp?) Test Pilot, was allowed to fly solo in the DH-4 I posted pictures of a page or 2 back. He was absolutely thrilled to do so and became emotional talking about the experiance and opportunity to do. Even though this was not a WACO, it was one of the major highlights of the event as most of the members watched his flight. Congratulations Mr Penrose.

    Hey Jim,

    Use the ABS cowl to make a YMF cowl, you already have the fiberglass UMF cowl. The trick will be to find a UMF that was converted to a YMF and find the documentation.
