About this Plan

Waco C6. Control line profile scale model. For either free flight or CL.

Quote: "Forget the old bugaboo about hard-to-fly bipes - they're as simple to make and fly as mono-wing models. Our Waco C-6 is one of the sweetest flying sportsters we've ever built. We've taken some liberties in scaling the free-flight C-6, to make it more stable in flight. If you've a hankering to build the contril line version, you'll note the plans show scale stab and rudder outlines. All photos shown are of the free-flight version. Flying the model is a pleasure..."

Quote: "Waco C6 - the only profile fuselage scale plan in the book. It does puzzle me to a certain extent because of their popularity. This time a biplane for 020 to 049 engines. (Published before Cox was beginning their period of influence but the engine size was popular in 54)."

This plan was printed in Flying Models Decade of Designs (1), published 1960.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 26/01/2017: added article, thanks to RFJ.

    ScaleType: This (oz3471) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waco_Custom_Cabin_series
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Do you have a photo you'd like to submit for this page? Then email admin@outerzone.co.uk

The Waco by Paul del Gatto, is also a free flight. As a matter of fact, I built this model some years ago and flew it free flight with a Cox Babe Bee.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
