    The OV-10 Bronco is an American twin-turboprop light attack and observation aircraft that was developed in the 1960s. Purpose-built for Forward Air Control and intended to fly off unimproved short fields with its high lift narrow wingspan wings, the Bronco excelled in observation, target marking, ground attack, and troop deployment roles. In recent times, Broncos continue service as firefighting aircraft and flying specialized evaluation missions against ISIS, and in 2020 is set to serve as a US Air Force JTAC training aircraft.

    FlightLine by Motion RC delivers the historic OV-10 Bronco as an easy-to-transport, easy-to-fly, and easy-to-land RC model with pre-upgraded lights and metal suspension landing gear at a superb pricepoint. Presented in 1/8.5 scale and standing taller than other FlightLine twins like the 1/10 scale 1600mm P-38, the OV-10's twin boom and high elevator configuration displaces more volume during transport, so we designed the outer wing panels to unscrew for convenient transport standing on the model's retractable landing gear. DayBright LEDs, a large cockpit, tasteful detailing, and removable ordnance underscore a model that looks as great as it performs, while still being Beginner-Friendly and geared toward Every Day fliers.
    Armed to the Teeth


    Four plastic machine guns, four removable rocket pods, and a magnetic centerline tank comprise the Bronco's menacing ordnance package.
    Large Battery Bay


    The battery bay in the Bronco has ample space for your batteries and peripheral equipment including a gyro or gyroceiver. Achieve 5-8 minutes of flight time with two economical 4s batteries.
    Four Panel Flaps


    Wide four panel flaps enhance the FlightLine Bronco's STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) capability. Ideal for new warbird pilots looking for their first Big Twin, the Bronco assembles with only screws and is backed by a full line of easy-to-replace spare parts.
    FPV-Friendly Cockpit


    As an observer platform, the OV-10 is especially suited to visibility. Remove the two included pilots and install your own FPV camera equipment for the ultimate scale warbird FPV experience!
    Grass Friendly


    Designed for practical every-day RC use, tall pre-upgraded aluminum suspension struts and adequate ground clearance give the FlightLine Bronco the best off-road capabilities of any FlightLine aircraft. The large nose wheel and trailing-link main struts are especially suited for operating off of the toughest RC airfields, intended to fully compress without damaging the fuselage or props. Due to practical size constraints, the largest main wheel is used that can still fit in the reinforced foam boom without hydraulic compression assistance.
    LED Lighting


    The onboard MFCB powers five pre-installed LED lights, with ports for additional LEDs added by you. The model features two red/green wingtip static LEDs, one white dorsal LED, a flashing red ventral LED (shown), and one white landing LED in the nose that illuminates whenever the landing gear is extended.
    Magnetic Centerline Tank


    Flying with or without the removable ordnance, from any angle the FlightLine OV-10 Bronco has style in spades!
    Efficient Power System


    Our proven three blade 4s brushless outrunner power system provides power for all scale maneuvers including loops and rolls for 5-8 minutes based on throttle usage and flight conditions. Molded plastic parts throughout the model resist dents and dings during transport. 85% scale size props prevent tip damage during hard landings even when the landing gear is fully compressed.
    Removable Ordnance


    Remove the ordnance in seconds for easier storage or transport, or for clearing higher grass RC airfields. At 1/8.5 scale, the foam FlightLine OV-10 PNP is an excellent size for additional customization and everyday transport, as an alternative to the larger 1/6.5 scale balsa wood OV-10 ARF from Black Horse Models also available here at Motion RC. Both are excellent!
    Short Takeoff


    The FlightLine Bronco excels at short-field takeoffs, and is capable of steep angle landings with flaps down and power on. Generous rudder authority helps train new pilots to fly with rudder to keep the Bronco tracking on target throughout its very wide flight envelope!
    Easy To Transport


    The OV-10's outer wings are easily removable for convenient transporting to and from the flying field. This design allows the aircraft to stand on its three landing gear without its outer wings.
    Easy To Land


    The Bronco's four flap configuration and tricycle landing gear makes for an easy to land platform. A high mounted elevator provides excellent control authority in all conditions.
    FEATURES:
    • Easy-To-Transport with Removable Outer Wing Panels
    • Easy-To-Assemble with no glue required for main components
    • Easy-To-Program with pre-wired MFCB for dual motors/rudders and four flaps
    • Easy-To-Takeoff with four-panel flaps and high clearance, high power brushless motors
    • Easy-To-Fly with large size and low wing loading
    • Easy-To-Land with flaps, tall wheels, and trailing link aluminum suspension landing gear struts
    • Easy-To-Own with pre-upgraded suspension landing gear, pre-installed DayBright LED Lights, and readily available spare parts
