Default RE: OV10 Bronco

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.
