Please make all new models have at least the ability to hover (pilot skill notwithstanding.)

Capable and Easy to Fly OV10 BRONCO ...

It fits in terms of the question marks, but doesn't seem to agree with the picture.

Well....the UMX Carbon Cub SS can hover on a decent low-sag 2s pack - but most don't hover it. The original 1.5m Timber can also crawl straight up out of a hover with nothing but a low-sag 3s pack - yet most don't fly it that way. So...that still leaves a lot of room for speculation...

So what we know so far.

1) It is a "warbird".

2) It has optional floats and uses a "popular" float set. Apprentice floats maybe? That'd put it in the 1.5-1.6m range

3) It's not necessarily a turboprop exhaust in the photo, even though it definitely looks like one.

Give us another image!

I could be wrong but I don't think that E Flite makes warbirds with the power to hover.
They have the "just enough" power philosophy where only STOL (and dedicated 3D) planes would justify having enough power to hover.

I'm guessing it's some sort of turboprop STOL plane in a military livery. Probably a turbo Beaver or Otter that utilizes either the Maule, Apprentice or Timber floats.

I found no references to it being a warbird.

So you like MY guesses? lol
-excluding the military livery (no mention of it being a warbird)

It could be the Wiga/Draco they hinted a while back

Given the hints so far - I haven't seen any positive indication that it's a civilian plane or a warbird/military version of a civilian plane...

Need...more...information...

I HOPE you're right! I'd go BONKERS over a scale DRACO in UMX or 1.5 to ~2m size! However - the color's wrong, and I don't think that Mike ever put Draco on floats or skis....
