    Pilot-1 "Waco YKS-6" 1/8 Scale ARF



    RCM8930 Pilot-1 "Waco YKS-6" 1/8 Scale ARF

    50" wingspan, 37" long, 624 sq. in. wing area, 43 oz. flying weight. There are few things more attractive than a Golden Age biplane and WACO created some of the best. Our Pilot-1 Waco YKS-6 in 1/8 scale captures the overall beauty of this airplane and brings it to you in an easy to assemble ARF. Precision laser cut all wood construction, pre-assembled and pre-covered in genuine Oracover. Much simpler to assemble than many biplanes, the Waco's upper wing attaches to the side on the fuselage and is automatically aligned. Assembly will take 6-8 hours, the illustrated instructions provide clear guidance. Our recommended power system provides plenty of power for quick take-offs and a great climb. The airplane will perform all the standard aerobatic maneuvers but is at its best flying in a scale manner, doing touch-and-go's and shooting landings. Flight times are 10-15 minutes. For 4-channels: Ailerons (2 servos), Elevator, Rudder and Throttle.

    OK, I've CA'd the carbon push-rods where the metal attaches. I was able to get the metal in about 5/8". The manual says 3/4",but I found that was impossible and I didn't want to break them.

    I then added the shrink-wrap, and CA'd them again. I'm nervous about these-never done this technique before. Particularly the elevator. Will these hold up ok? Please tell me not to worry! :(

    Tony,

    I do this all the time. Great way to make pushrods with a wire z bend on the end.
    Try pulling on it and excersize it a little.
    Turns out CA has a great affinity for Carbon fiber and stick like crazy.
    This is a trick that has come about in about the last 5 years or so.

    This model is the pride of my fleet. It's rock solid in the air and on the ground.
