    OV-10 Bronco 81"

    Good Lord! I already have more planes than I can keep operating/ build/ stay current on/ afford, but I really want one of these :greedy: Especially the fiberglass parts. Sheesh.

    I gotta win the lottery and retire to the shop.

    BTW - I found the web site for Bob Sealy, Quality Fiberglass. No mention of the OV-10, but definitely may be worth a call or e-mail.

    http://www.ucrcs.com/quality.htm

    BTW- The guy shows what looks to be a really nice C-130 glass kit that goes for $350, shipped

    OV-10 Bronco 81"

    Thanks for the information about the board size Drifter, I have seen a building board which is 48" by 18" will that be large enough?

    Also thanks for the picture picture of the retracts, Drifter.


    Regards,

    bronco wing

    The Bronco wing panel is 15" cord by 40.5" span. A 48"x18" board will work. The two wing panels are then joined on something long enough to maintain accurate alignment. The nacelle is about 38" long.
    Why do they call it "dead weight" if it keeps your airplane alive?

    Bronco cockpit kit!

    Hey guys, if you're looking to scale up the cockpit, then Dynamic Balsa will be releasing their cockpit kit for the Bronco. I don't know exactly when, but they tell me that it'll be around $100.

    OV-10 Bronco 81"

    Hey Guys,
    I have the RU plans but have not started yet. I did scratch one from three views that I got from North American in 1974.
    60" span, two OS 40s, 11.5 pounds.
    Articulated gear as per full scale and electric retracts,and flaps.
    BTW there is a LONG NOSED version and the nose gear retracts forward to be scale.
    Good Luck

    Great! I'm glad to hear some one is coming out with a cockpit kit. I searched a quite a few web sites on the OV-10 and could find any useful pictures of the cockpit area. A few side views, but nothing I could really use to build my own. Howz everyones progress on their Bronco?

    OV-10 Bronco

    Just finished covering...decided to go patrotic..corsair blue with red and white. Weather here lousy right now,waiting for nice, warm, calm, spring day for that first flight. Using two OS-61fx for power. I'll try to send a photo in the near future.

    Elevator question?

    Hey guys, did you use 2 servos (and 2 linkages in the booms) to operate the elevator, or just one? Also, how many receivers did you use? I'm thinking of putting one in the wing, and one in cockpit. I will only remove the centre cockpit for travel and storage.

    Thanks, Dean.

    OV-10 Bronco 81"

    Two servos,(and pushrods) definately. Even though one might do the job, two will help eliminate flutter. I'm even gonna go for more powerful servos, maybe 70+oz torque for all flight controls. I plan on using one RX with a 6v 1100+maH batt. I found scale and semi-scale retracts at Precision and Century jet but they're not cheap. Robart couldn't be bothered to answer my email whether or not they had something I could use.
    Right now I have all componants framed and mostly sheeted. I'm now waiting for epoxy to cure on a few strenghtening modifications I made on the wing, then I can finish sheeting.
    Very soon I will have to order the plastics, and choose what retracts I want to use ($$$)
    Thanks for the photos and sharing your input and Ideas. Lets have a Bronco flyinn! (If spring ever comes)

    Elevator control

    I've got two Hitec (s-77's I think) low profile servos mounted in the upper fins. I didn't trust the four bellcrank system suggested on the plans. Too much opportunity for slop and binding.

    The Fiberglass fins are wider than the same fins done in balsa and allow servo mounting.

    I'm using two receivers, each driving seven servos. Each has a 1100 mah battery pack.

    Fili, If you want a set of scale retracts contact Gene Barton (blkbrt610@earthlink.net) or (573) 964-6718. He has been building quality retracts for a long time. He is semi retired so is a little hard to get a hold of sometimes but will build you what ever you want.

    Palmer's Bronco

    I ordered the plans - and gladly ate the restocking fee when I returned them. Palmer is the only guy I know who sells plans that haven't been prototyped yet. In other words, I paid a high price for plans to a plane that had not been flown. At the time, cowls were just being released by Stan's, and the canopy was just a dream of Palmer's. I think it's probably all available now, but don't know if it's ever been flown.
    I'd be much more interested in Ed Clayman's fiberglass set - booms and pod, foam wing.

    OV-10,
    As I stated in an earlier post , I have a set of plans (actually 2 sets) for RU's 81" model. I would like to trade one of them for plans of a "Gold Edition" war bird. I prefer the 51 or 39. but if you want to trade tell me what you got.
    e-mail arizona2@i1.net. My plans are undamaged and want trade in same condition.
    thanks
