Default OV-10 Bronco

Any of you guys fly or have seen the OV-10 Bronco by R. Uravitch fly? I ordered the kit from Hangar Hobby nearly 3 weeks ago. While I'm on the subject, let me vent. The guy copied my credit card # wrong and waited a week to let me know the card wouldn't work. My wife called him back while I was at work and he was rather rude about his mistake. Here it is a 1 1/2 weeks later and still no plane. Bad business, but Hangar Hobby is the only place I know of to get the plane. Anyways, any info / advice on the OV-10 would be helpful.

Default OV-10

I have an Uravitch OV-10. I love it, It flies very scale with twin
OS25's. Flies great stable as a trainer. If you want a little more speed I would use twin OS32's.
The plane looks great in air,, I'm going to recover this plane this winter in the Desert storm camo scheme.

Hi FlyinRazorback,
We had a member fly his OV10 last Sunday for the first time, showed no real problems, flew quite well with no bad habits but was under propped(sp) had like 12/10, needed something around 14/?, if you want his E-Mail address give me yell, I'm sure he would be happy to help you since (Harold Mahoney) been building and flying for a long time. Can see some pic's on our club web site www.geocities.com/clubamac222

Default OV-10 80"

American Eagle Aircraft Company has available a form wing and horizontal stab, fiberglass booms with vertical fin molded in, and a fiberglass pod which makes up a very nice short kit. You can order the canopy from Uravitch or American Eagle will soon have one available. I saw the parts at their booth in Toledo and look as though they would make quick work of building an 80" OV-10. I think it is designed to fly on twin 70 or 90 four strokes.

I actually said it backwards. It's Hobby Hangar and found at www.hobbyhangar.com. Yeah, I know, I'm a dumb@$$!!

Let me tell you something about these guys though. I ordered this plane about 5 or 6 weeks ago. After figuring out that they had copied my info wrong we straightened everything out and they were supposed to ship it right away. A couple of weeks later I called them to see what was up and the guy said he didn't know but he would find out and get back in touch with me the following day. Two days later (and no call) I called them back to find out that they are closed until January 3. I'm some kind of ticked, but I want this plane! Maybe I am the only one with this type of dealing with them, but it has rubbed me the wrong way. Anyways, they have the plane, it's about 119.00 for the 52" wing span. It's the plan by Uravitch that they cut into kit form. I believe you have to supply the balsa yourself though. Good Luck!

Default Uravitch ARF kit

I believe Uravitch has just come out with an ARF kit of the Bronco. Suggest you contact him for details.

Default Bronco connections

Have any of you figured out how to minimize the number of connections that have to be made every time you fly this thing? (80")

So far it seems that 8 servo leads must be connected, along with the battery pack, retracts, and elevator links. This assumes a one piece wing with the receiver mounted to the wing, and a detachable stab. That eliminates disconnecting the flaps and ailerons. There are still 3 servos in each boom and two in the fuse.pod.

Some use two receivers, but that means two battery packs and switches.

All these connections have made me put the parts away for a while.
