Everything is scratch build but the fiberglass parts. The canopy door latch hardware is a combination of some Dubro ball link parts and my machined parts. I have a lot more completed on the airplane since this last post. You can check out http://www.rcscalebuilder.com/forum/...?TID=4860&PN=1 for a lot more detail on the project.

When I get back home from Canada next week I will post some more cockpit photos on RCuniverse.

The Palmer OV10 Bronco is structurally and mechanically complete. All of the systems are checked out and functional. I hope to start taxi tests and then the first flights by the end of the month. Great project but took way too long to complete. There is good news and bad news. The good news is that it balanced almost perfectly without adding weight. The bad news is that it weighs 46 pounds!! Wing loading is 63.08 ounces per square foot. All that scale detail will add weight.

Totally awesome, thanks for the nice pics. Good luck on the maiden voyage. I'm in search of some small decals like some of those you have on yours, can you give me a tip as to where to look? Again, very nice work, oh, and by the way, very nice shop too.

I just kind of stummbled across this thread and noticed your reference to the 225 servos. I really hope you changed them. I lost a very nice 160 size plane a few years ago because of these servos. I now use them on .40 size but never anything larger.

The HS225 servos were replaced with HS625s. As the weight grew, I knew I would need more power and torque.

Most of the markings are paint masks provided by www.getstencils.com. I sent him the graphics, photos, and sizes and he produced the masks. The triangle on the side of the fuselage is done by my local sign guy. I took a photo in and he reproduced the decal in print on vinyl. Did a great job.
