OV-10 - Looking for kit or plans.


Iíve been looking for an OV-10 kit with no luck. Iím beginning to doubt if one exist. If anyone out there knows where I could find one, or at least some plans, it would be greatly appreciated.

Fantastic, I appreciate it. I canít wait to get this project started. My father spent 30 years flying for the Marine Corps and was in the first OV-10 squadron. I am going to surprise him at his birthday picnic this summer with a surprise fly-by. Should be interesting. Thanks again.

Vfronly,

I have plans for an OV-10 that takes 2 sp400 motors. The DXF is 2.6MByte in size. Will your email accept that? Contact me at:

lreinhart@cfl.rr.com

and I will send it.

I also have a GIF that is 175KByte, but I am not sure if it will print at the correct size.

Len

Vfronly,

This is what the model from the plans would look like. My friend built it and I was the test pilot.

He used two geared Speed 300 motors and cut down GWS 3 bladed props. Batterys were 6 cell Sanyo 3000 and 3300.

It flew during it's maiden flight but when we tried 7 cells we had some problem and I crashed the plane. Fortunately the damage was only minor. I would suggest you keep it light. And try changing the airfoil, since the one specified in the plan is quite thick.

Yep - still have it


I have a K&A kit of the OV-10 - yours if you want it for $80 + shipping.

Also found my MEC Zero untouched "kit" ARF...forgot I had purchased a 'spare'

Good to dig through the piles of stuff sometime!

Terry
