Default update

Here is the plane shown on page one of this thread. It's in the same position, but a little further along.

This is not the plane shown by nony.

Default OV-10 Bronco 81"

Hi Aeroscale,

The Bronco looks great, have you cowled the engines completly? As I would like to do that with mine.


I am fortunate in that I have arranged to visit a full size Bronco OV-10 next week to take a lot of photographs. I intend to make mine as scale as possible.

I have been trying to get hold of the Squadron book 'Bronco in action' which has plenty of detailed photo's in. Does anyone know where I might find one, as it is now out of print.

Also has anyone actually fitted the front undercarriage so that it retracts in the same direction as the full size?


Many thanks,

Sarah

Hey gang....Uhhhh this might sound really really silly but I just figured out that the Man responsible for starting all these threads and giving us the plans to this popular 81" Bronco is "Aeroscale" who is Rich Uravitch.......SO Rich....hats off to you and thanks for such a great Bronco.... So how do those Sierra Precision Retracts work? I spotted them on your latest OV-10 Bronco on page 4....the grey one.... do they retract forward into the nose?? we are all waiting......thanks....the Bronco group.... Oh p.s. dynamic balsa almost is ready to ship out the scale cockpit kits for the Uravitch Bronco..... and those blue box toy pilots look mighty scale.....

Default OV-10

I started a contract build of the Uravich 81" OV-10 for a friend in Tampa. He purchased the Centry Jet retracts for this plane (nose gear retracts forward and up), nice rugged looking gear. Going to power it with two O.S. .91 Surpass II's (going to be interesting hiding those in them little cowls) turning 3-blade props. The laser cut short kit saves a lot of time for the money, since most of the parts are lite ply and the ribs have lightening holes cut into them. Depending on your LHS, you could spend almost $90 for the lite ply alone, then have to make templates and cut it all out and sand it.

Saito 91's fit completely in the cowl (except for the exhaust header and muffler), so the OS's should be close.....

I built mine, but with a fiberglass pod and fiberglass tial booms. It flies at about 12 1/2 pounds, and flies with a pair of 70 four strokes. Takes off of pavement in about 75 feet, maintains altitude at about 3/4 throttle, and lands nicely with or without flaps. I am using retracts from Darrell Tenny and they work flawlessly. Bob Sealy

I have been fortunate and was given access to photo the two ex-german OV-10B Bronco's at Duxford today. Four films later, I have a lot of the detailed photographs I wanted. They have nearly finished one restoration, then they are starting on the other. It will be nice to see an OV-10 flying again.

Thought you all might enjoy seeing what an 81" Bronco on steroids looks like. 105" span, G38's, 44", not as yet flown, waiting for struts.

Hi Rich,

It looks great, can't wait to hear about how it flies, please keep us posted.

Will you be doing a plan for it?


With your latest 81" Bronco, did you completely cowl in the engines? Did you also get the front noseleg to rotate forwards into the front fuselage?



Regards,

Sarah

My Bronco WAS 82" wing span and 85" long......until today, it had two Magnum 148's and 16x8 props........uh....now trash can.......Lost a hatch on the bottom on one of the booms that the landing gear was attached to.......like opening a parachute on one boom!!!!!
I did entertain the crowd though. Rats!!!

Sarah,
Will surely keep you posted on flight performance when that happens. As of the moment I do not plan to release construction drawings as I don't really think that the demand would be there for an OV-10 that large; the 81" version seems to be a perfect size.....manageable, standard radios/servos, and available, uncomplicated retracts. It's Just more accessible (and affordable) to the twin sport flyer.
I do not have the engines on the 81" version completely cowled, they are clocked to the 10:00 position which hides much of the engine and tucks the muffler in tightly between the nacelle and the wing intersection.

Sorry to here about your Bronco George, I just bought a 52" Bronco, should be here today or tomorrow, what do you think of Satio 26's for power? I think the guy who sold it to me said it weighed 6lbs.
