Default OV-10 Bronco

A friend of mine has ask me to complete an OV-10 Bronco for him. All he wants is to see it fly once and then it's mine. It's a Rich Uravitch design, 52 inch wingspan, 533 sq. in. Right now with everything in it, but not covered, it weighs 8.25 lbs. Recommended weight is 5 to 6.5 lbs. When complete I am figuring 9 lbs take off weight. It has 2 HB .25's on it. Also has Spring Air retracts with 3/16 wire.
I am wondering if it will even get off the ground when I try to fly it!
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Try Youtube and see if you can find any videos. Chances are pretty good there is at least one.

Rich Uravitch 52" OV-10 Bronco

This one is electric @ 8lbs and the owner said he had to extend the front strut to raise the nose a bit to help it takeoff.
