Waco C Series / ODC / PDC / QDC
The 1931 Waco Model C “QDC” four place cabin biplane marked the entry of Waco in the field of cabin aircraft to compete with such established manufacturers as Bellanca and Stinson. The ship was powered with a Continental 165 hp engine and equipped with a metal propeller, cowl ring, electric starter, dual controls, brakes and tail wheel. The control wheel is on a jointed column, so that the ship can be piloted from the right or left, and the rudder pedals are dual.
The QDC was slightly shorter that the UOC and was 500 lb lighter. WACO replaced the QDC in 1933 with its most successful cabin design, the UIC.
