Waco 5 / Weaver 5
 
Waco-5
 
The Waco team continued to assemble airplanes from parts salvaged from surplus World War I Curtiss Jennys, continuously tinkering with their designs and making improvements.
 
The 1921 Weaver 5 three place open cockpit biplane used many Curtiss JN-4 parts with new interchangeable wing panels and powered by a 90 hp (67 kW) Curtiss OX-5.
 
Eventually, they sold two WACO 5 biplanes, conversions of JN-4C Canucks, two with 150hp Hisso A engines. Selling for $1,500-2,000, the final one was built at Advance Co in 1923.
