ProFly OV-10 Bronco 1800mm ARF


This thread is for the new ProFly OV-10 Bronco 1800mm ARF.

Here is a flight video:

ProFly OV-10 Bronco 1800mm ARF RC Plane From Motion RC Second Flight (5 min 14 sec)

This is Motion RC's Unboxing video:

Unboxing - ProFly OV-10 Bronco 1800mm Balsa ARF - Motion RC (8 min 32 sec)

This is how Motion RC describes it:

The North American/Rockwell OV-10 Bronco was developed to meet the requirements of the United States Marine Corps Light Armed Reconnaissance Aircraft (LARA) program that was to provide the service with a multi-role aircraft that could operate in the armed reconnaissance and light attack roles from unprepared, forward airstrips. The ability to loiter in the combat area for an extended period was a key requirement.

The Bronco evolved to perform a broad range of roles including observation, forward air control, helicopter escort, armed reconnaissance, utility light air transport and limited ground attack. It has also performed aerial radiological reconnaissance, tactical air observation, artillery and naval gunfire spotting, airborne control of tactical air support operations and front-line, low-level aerial photography.

The ProFly OV-10 Bronco is scaled to approximately 1:6.7 and attention has been given to providing a realistic appearance with outstanding flight characteristics. The model was designed for electric power but can also be flown using a matched pair of internal combustion engines of about 6-7cc displacement.

  • High level of prefabrication right out of the box

You had me at OV-10!
Do you know if Seagull is the OEM for this line, and Tower's Phoenix?
Whatever the case, there is someone in Vietnam building some very fine models.

They did a great job. As far as how it breaks down for transport, I don't know. The videos John and I took were of a buddy's plane

I'm putting one together. It's very well done. I used Motions recommended retracts. Power 46's for power on 4 or 5 cells.( not sure yet) Spektrum servos , CC esc's and picked up a couple of pilots from Benchmark.
