Hi twinman :

Sorry for U and for U Bronco, all that work and time, snuff snuff . :cry:

Sarah : thank U for the pic and for ask, if U have something of the cabin and the burble it will be nice. Thank U again.

I have a great doubt ???: I bought the plans from palmer planes (great mistake) but is done. The question is , he wrote that for the big bird I need 2 saito 80 , I have bought 2 saito 91 ,but will these sufficient power for it.????
The wing span is 96" and I thing it will weight about 22 pounds.teh wing area is 1671 sq.inch. (11.6 sq.ft.)

It is the Uravich 81". it is heavier than usual for a couple of reasons...extensive use of mahogany door skin plywood, and two complete flight paks and batteries, and some strengthening of the stab mount, and the inevitable nose ballast weight. Oh yeah....the wing was extended one bay, so it is closer to 84". The plane does not feel the weight at all. Takeoffs and flight can be done at half throttle or less...

Nony,
Mine weighs about 19 pounds, and has twin flight packs, plus flaps and retracts. The wing is fully sheeted, and it is painted with latex . 19 pounds is before the 2 pounds of nose weight it will need. Did you use onboard glow heat on yours? I figure since I need the weight anyway it might as well be useful. It will also mean 5 more connections when it is put together.

no onboard glow....

But part of the ballast is offset by a nose mounted landing light...

Hi Guys,

Could you please let me know what make of retracts have you used in your Bronco's. Also any quirks in fitting them, or to get them looking more scale like.


Many thanks,

Sarah

Wondering how much your 81" Bronco weighs.. had to put 2 lbs. in the nose to balance. Weight with 2 OS- .61FX about 23 lbs.
Is this thing going to get off the ground???

Yours weighs two pounds more than mine and has less power. That would scare me. Not saying it won't work, but I have really serious doubts. Any way to swap in more power?

Prop it with 13x5 or 13x6 and it will have almost vertical performance. I'd say 14x4 but that limits top speed. I don't guess you could be too happy with wing loading at that weight, but the power of 2 .61's will easily handle 23 lbs.

I had two webra 60 two strokes in mine. It did fly allright but slow. Mine was 21lbs. It wouldn.t fly one one motor. We had two others flying ,one with ys91 fourstroke and one with 91 magnum 4 stroke. They fly great. till the tails come off.

Can you tell me if the wings are removable from the bird for transport, where the wing meets the boom. If so, I am also wondering what the dimensions of the Bronco are with the wings removed. Length, width, and height. I am considering the 81in Bronco for my winter project.

Craig.

Do I see, in your picture, an APC blade about to go through a wing the first time you make a left turn?

Haw.

Default WOW

I did not realize that it could be broken down to that stage. Portability is obviously not an issue.

Default oV-10 Bronco

Here's my Bronco. I flew it for the first time last week and was pleasently surprised how well it flew. Very little trim required and we were stright and level. Landed great (without flaps) . I do have flaps installed. Fixed gear also. I actually looped it on the second flight flight. The guys at the field applauded. And, yes I was nervous. I'm running two OS. 61FX with 13.6 props. Flies nice at half throttle. I chose a color scheme that I could see.

Congrats Halflight!! I hope my maiden goes as well. Unfortunately my Bronco has become this winters project, shouldn't take long though, she's all framed up, just need retracts and engines and I'm good to finish. I'll be bummed in December when she's ready and the field isn't plowed.....

Default RE: Palmer's Bronco

Why did you return the plans? What was wrong with them? Was it strictly because the plane wasn't prototyped, and if so how did you determine that. I too have contemplated the Palmer Plans for its size. He claims to have drawn museum quality, exact reproductions of the full scale plane. If thats true, and if accurately built and balanced it should fly something like the full scale, shouldn't it? I am interested in your feedback. Thanks![sm=drowning.gif]
