Alabeo's WACO YMF5

Alabeo’s WACO YMF-5

Also out this week for FSX: Steam Edition from Carenado’s sister company, Alabeo, is the WACO YMF-5. The Waco YMF-5 originated from the Waco UMF, a biplane often used for racing and sport. The UMF variant boasted a bigger fuselage and a longer fin than original INF first manufactured in the 1930’s. Eventually, a 225 hp Jacobs L-4 engine replaced the 210 hp Continental R-670A found in the UMF to create the YMF variant. The YMF-5 version of the aircraft was introduced in 1986. As of 2012, 100 Waco YMF-5s had been produced.

Alabeo’s incarnation of the WACO YMF5 for FSX: Steam Edition includes the following:

  • Superb material shines and reflections
  • Custom environment sounds
  • Professional flight dynamics.
  • High quality 3D model and textures
  • Aerobatic smoke effect
  • Five paint schemes as well as a blank texture for creating your own designs
