OV-10 Bronco 1800mm (70.8") Wingspan from ProFly - Balsa Wood ARF - PFY1000-001

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.

Great aircraft

Love this aircraft, waited a while to get it and going through the building process. First thing I noticed however is the recommended servos do not fit in the brackets for the ailerons and flap servos. The spacing is off by half an inch and requires cutting out the brackets and this will weaken the structure. Either jigs they used to make it are too small or the recommended servos are too large. Otherwise the kit is excellent and look forward to the building process and first flight.

High Quality Balsa ARF with a few disappointments

The overall quality of the kit is outstanding. The construction and covering are excellent. The cockpit and canopy are top quality. The fiberglass scale parts provided such as engine cowls are well done. I haven't completed the build yet so I can't comment on the flying characteristics. I feel like the recommended retracts, sold by Motion, but out of stock, should have been included in the kit. Even if some additional cost were added. I feel that the landing gear struts could have been designed with a more scale appearance and function. If the foam jets can get quality scale landing gear, this model should have it as well. The assembly manual is only average. Several mistakes such as recommending the high wing model be balanced upside down, which is incorrect. But overall, I am very pleased with the quality and value. Would highly recommend for fans of the OV-10.

OV 10 Bronco

I got the plane, open the box and everything looks great. Very well protected, minor details on covering, very light and good looking airframe. I like this airplane. This one is going to be a gas engine version OV 10. Already waiting for a pair of NGH . 9 the only downside of this beautiful airplane is that the retracts landing gear system still on backorder and is holding me to get it completed. Thanks for such a good service Motion RC.

ProFly OV-10 Bronco

This has been a top quality product since I have received it. Assembly was straight forward and easy. I opted for two OS 46 glow engines to power it. My one and only drawback to this product was that the retracts were not immediately available, and I am still waiting for them to arrive at Motion. Other that that I think this is a very superior product.
