    RE: WACO YMF

    ORIGINAL: SuperCub Man

    Trying to spot if the YMF Classic has a strobe on the belly that I can't see in this shot.
    Here's a couple of pics showing the belly strobe, plus the antennae, on NC 14081. The best I can tell from the angles, the strobe sits centered just forward of the trailing edge of the lower wing.

    Ken,

    On your G-26, did you use 8-32 bolts, or did you open them up to 10-24?

    RE: WACO YMF

    Supercub man,
    The Waco YMF-5 I modeled was built in 1998 by the Classic Waco Company in Michigan. At that time they did offer a strobe oiption but the owner of N56ED elected not to get it. The strobe is mounted center of lower wing both ways.
    Hope this helps.

    Good to hear from you. Janelle has been trying to reach Barb. Ask her to check her e-mail. Looking forward to seeing you at Top Gun. I'm still at it on my current YMF (with all the mods)

    Todd,

    I did a set using 1/16" square stock (sanded to shape) and it looked good. It did, however, seem to take forever to make them.

    They were fairly light, but there are materials out there that lend themselves to the process in a much easier manner.

    "Seemed to take forever"??? "Materials that lend themselves to the process in a much easier manner"???

    Master Chief! I thought you liked building from a pile of sticks. Might as well do the ARF if you want fast and easy!

    At Ease Lt. (khodges)... I'm just jerkin' Bill's chain with the ARF comment. Your plane is DEFINITELY the exception rather than the rule. But it just seemed to me that aelerons made out of wood - to scale - would not be any harder or time consuming than building the tail feathers... or the fuse or wings for that matter. Just a Doggie thought.

    Bill, I used 8-32 socket heads, and used Blue Loctite in addition to split lockwashers. I haven't had to tighten them yet.

    Nightstalker, the styrene sheets are the only way to go. At 1/5 scale, the amount of work you save by not having to cut each of those little pieces, align them, glue them down, and sand and fill until the wood is smooth enough to pass for metal is well worth whatever little is given up to scaleness. 99.9% of whoever looks at the finished product won't know the difference in how many ribs there are supposed to be, and you can always tell the 0.1% who do to kiss your ***** when they point it out to you. Of course, if that 0.1% guy is either bigger than you, or is the only Top Gun judge between you and 1st place, then maybe it would have been worth it to do all the extra work.
    I'm sure the difference is worth it in the larger scales, just because the details get bigger.

    While we're talking detail, BTW, I was in A C Moore (craft store) the other day, and found some tiny, tiny brass brads over in the dollhouse area. The heads on these can't be more than 0.25-0.5 mm and they came in two lengths, about 3/16 and 1/4 inch. A bag of 100 was about $1.50.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Don't get me wrong Ken. I was just messin' with the Master Chief because he was chastising the flight characteristics of my beloved 'Hooks (back in the day... err... night) [8D]. And in all honesty, never having built a (serious) scale model airplane - let alone a WACO - I was just curious as to why plastic over wood. I am the first guy to go with plastic over metal at my work unless it absolutely needs to be metal. Time is Money... and machining something out of metal when plastic will due is a huge waste of both of the aforementioned.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Todd,

    It just takes over 200 of the sticks sanded to shape, and glued in place. There are other means of doing this that look just as well, take less time, and are far lighter. I'm thinking about making a buck out of wood, and forming mine from aluminum.

    I'll let the ARF crack slide (this time)

    RE: WACO YMF

    Just thinkin' out loud here...but if when I wire the top wing for running lights - I could attach the pos. lead to the port cabane strut connection and the neg. lead to the starb'd cabane strut connection and then pick up the connetion inside the fuse from each cabane to the switch. Then when I screw on the top wing I will make connection with the cabanes and I will make the circuit and all will be hidden!..I think!!? Any problems with this?

    That works great then all you have to do is run 2 wires to the sturn. and up the stablize to the top. Been there done that works out well with the switch in the instrument panel. Solder the wires in the top wing to washers.

    Tony,

    Welcome to the Brotherhood. You are now Brother #71. It just worked out that way this time. We do try to accomodate special requests for numbers, but we can't take someone else's number away from them. We have more than one ARF'er in here. Ken Hodges is the premier ARf flyer in the Brotherhood. Take a look at some of his work. Sorry that you hate to build. You are missing out on a lot of fun.

    Hello to all

    I've been in slump for the past few months and haven't worked on the Waco ........
    Well think I'll go and clean my shop I always feel better with a clean shop.
    Man, do I know how you feel. I haven't touched a plane in four weeks, since botching a landing and skinning up my Waco, plus breaking a wingtip; this on the heels of almost totalling my L-4. My workshop is an absolute wreck, can't do any repairs until I get it straightened up, can't do that until I get my bathroom remodelling project mess cleaned up, can't do THAT until I get two more loads of hay (truck and trailer are tied up with that, but should be done this weekend). Then I've got to get my wrists fixed (Carpal Tunnel) so I don't have to work with numb/tingling fingers. I could let off several good expletives right about now, maybe the Master Chief has some good NavySpeak words I can use.

    Tony V, it don't matter whether you're an ARF'er or not; they'll dress up almost as nice as the kits do. I do ARF's and kits both, depends on what I can find in what I want. Flying is the main thing. Welcome to the Machine.

    You want some Navyspeak words to use? Well, there is %$^& ^**#, and there is &^% %$ $ *&^#$, then there is, +!@#$%%^%$%^&^, followed by a few, &^%^&^$, and if all else fails, you can always say, &^%%%^%$$$%$###$^&&. I guess that about covers it.
