I wish there would have been some replies to this thread. I recently built one of these planes again, after having one about 30 years ago. I have a Saito .40 on it. It sure is a fun kit to build...

Here is my version, that I just made and tested. It works like a champ. I had some 2" x 2" thin gauge aluminum angle that I was able to bend quite nicely to fit my battery.

1) Moving the main gear back some will help. Being too far forward exasperates the tendency to ground loop, plus it makes it more difficult to raise the tail on takeoffs.

I was tickled to see 80, 120 and 180 being commonly offered, finally.

I used to have buddy that had one. I used to drool over that plane. I think he had a YS 120 in it, and it flew great. I imagine a Saito 180 would make it phenomenal.

Update to OP: My CG is 1/2" - 5/8" behind the center of the spar, and it flies just fine that way. It feels perfectly normal to me, and is not twitchy at all. No issues at all with pitch...

Thanks for the tips, so far. I'm gonna build one when I get some spare funds. Been wanting to do that since this plane first came out, back when I was really heavy into building models.

Yes - that helps very much. Good to know. Thank you. There are very few airplanes that I am more fond of than OV-10's.

That is probably a more cost-effective, much lighter, and much simpler option. Do you think something like 1300 mAh would be enough for starting a .40-.62 4-stroke maybe 10 times in a day?

Well dang. With twin booms and twin rudders, I figured a flight would be salvageable in the plane, if going to idle or low throttle on the remaining running engine. I don't like electric power in .40...
