See a 1931 Waco RNF at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1931

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Warner Scarab 125HP

WACO had learned that horsepower was an expensive way to quicken the pulse of sport pilots. The Model F had lines reminiscent of past WACO designs but in a smaller airframe. It was designed to give performance comparable to that of larger, more powerful airplanes while using an engine that was far less costly. Stable and easy to fly, the RNF was exceptionally capable and in the hands of a good pilot could be safely landed in the confines of a 100-foot circle. As the word spread sales flew as well as the airplane. WACO had hit the jackpot.
