OV-10 bronco EB

Hi guys,
here are my OV-10 design, Easy build with a pusher power plant for easy setup and instalation.
Actually the motor is a GH microjet v2 2200kv with a APC6x4 E propeller and use a 3s lipo 1500mah. throtle for level flight <25%, climb easy at 40%, I never reach over 75% of throttle...I think it flight with easy with a 2s lipo , or lower kv motor (i don't have any) ....
I plan to use it for trainer porpouses .. what do you think?

Weight: 330gr (11.1oz) 2d fuselage
380grs (12.8oz) 3d fuselage + rudder + bomb bay
Length: 80cm (32 in)
Wingspan: 88cm (34.5 in)
Wing Area: 1803cm2 (1.9 sq ft)

next step will be a 3d nose, bay boom and door.... in the future a twin motor convertion
I put the plans so if any build the model please tell me the result and post photos
enjoy the video

This was always a neat way to have twin engine plane powered with the ease of a single motor, nice build . Thanks for the plans.

The new fuse really takes her up a notch.

thanks for your words of support....
I'm really happy with the bronco because it maintains the same flight characteristic, even with 3 more servos (rudder working!) and the fat fuselage

today I could drop some cargo (a cloud of dry grass ) and practice himelmann manouvers and flat spins (fortunately very easy to recover) ....sadly no camera man again,

I'm not sure why but this has me seriously excited to start building. Thanks a lot for sharing the pics, vid and especially the plans.

Looks very good. What size foam are you using?

Is a 5,5 mm thin foam board (no depron in my country...eastfoam board is the closest thing here) 6mm will be ok. The size of the board is 90x120 cm butis not necesary... The bigest piece is the wing 90x25...
one advice, is you use a simillar motor, replace the carbon fiber to 4mm tube or rod.. My wing flex a lot if you climb or turn fast at full speed ... It was a scary test!

nice plane. I dont soppose some one could convert the planes to a standard 8.5x11 page size. Im having a hell of a time trying to print out useable plans for this great looking plane.

Got most of this plane built last night with 4mm Readi-Board. Doing the 3d fuse also. Where did you find the best CG on the plane?

ill try to get some pictures up later, have to find my camera first :P

Not sure if you are aware or not but on the main plane PDF your page sizes are 11.7"x8.25" for the paper size. So when printing out the plans there is a lot cut off. I had to redraw the tail lock pins on both sides but other then that I had to add 4cm between pages to line up the marks you had.
