Default New Hangar 9 OV-10 Bronco perhaps ?


Spotted this OV-10 at Top Gun on Thursday being flown by Ali M. of Horizon Hobby-just speculation on my part but I am guessing it's a Hangar 9 ARF future project ? Don't know much about it, except that it is large and this example is electric powered.

That would be really cool. It has been my dream for 35 years of modeling to have an OV-10, which is one of my favorite planes of all time. OV-10's just exude the Cool factor. They commonly flew from the nearby Air Force base when I was a kid, and the sound was unmistakable.

However, in my dreams, this new one would be glow-powered. And powered with a size engine that is still commonly available. That (and money) are the only reasons keeping me from building an old school Uravich OV-10. I was almost ready to pull the plug and order a plans & plastics from him, planning on taking my time building it, until I have the money for 2 engines, but then I found that .25 glow engines (as well as Saito .30's - which would be my first choice), are either very rare now, or extinct. I like my electric foamies and Blade 230S, but I do not like planes .40-size or larger being electric powered. The hassle and mess of fuel and residue is just the "cost of doing business", when you get the real sound and feel of a real engine.

Default More details....

More details provided by Ali-
As I mentioned , this prototype is electric powered.
Horizon has another that is powered by DLE 30s, and flys very much the same as the electric example.
It is built in the same factory as the H9 Oscar, and features the same covering, that is pre-printed with weathering and rivets right out of the box.
I must say H9 has raised the bar yet again on this one, as everyone that has seen it is impressed by how it looks.
As for flying, it lands at a crawl !!! Weighs 40 something pounda RTF, and will have a street price of $1499, with LG priced at $499.

Ive wanted one for years, the covering is a concern though, it looks amazing, but I havent had the best of luck with that printed stuff in the long run.

The steep final approach and landing at a walking pace is impressive at the end of the video - I guess electrics have the advantage of simulated beta range operations unlike glow and gas - could he be reversing motor direction in flight here?

They are fixed pitch props so there's no real beta range but i doubt he was reversing the motors, I don't remember seeing that in any case and I was there at Top Gun while they were flying it.

There was about an 8 to 10mph head wind most of the day.

Default ok but with a Turboprop

Would be nice to find a ARF model big enough to afford a real turboprop like those latest ones from Xicoy

Man, that thing is so INCREDIBLY FREAKING COOL!!!

I bet it will cost a fortune, and I could only dream of owning one, though.

edited: When I opened the video in post #15 in its own window, I see where the MSRP will be around $1,500.
