    There is a build tread on this model on the german Rc network site, here's the link : http://www.rc-network.de/forum/showt...k-Horse/page17

    From page 17 onwards there are several detail photo's

    Hope this helps..

    • So , I am still on the fence because I am trying to determine if I can scale out the cockpit based on where the lipos will go. I know the comments have been “ 60ties are overkill” , so I am looking at 2 x 46 size eflight type motors . With an all up weight of 15 or so lbs that 7.5 lbs per motor. .
      I would have to plan the lipo positions and determine if I can modified the interior. I would love to use to full body light weight pilots, full interior and functional doors similar to my A26. I simply think the Q10 has a great open canvas waiting for details !
      I am trying to really determine 6s or 2 -4s . 5 cell is out of the question for me because I simply have no need to 5 cell applications in any of my models.
      I am also looking at other options on the retracts such as the A10 . I think the FMS A10 is heavier then the Flight Line Verizon ( or vice versa ) . I punched some for a Royal Kit that i own and they are quote robust and you can play with the strut position to fit your retraction position.

          Yeah, this video is why I chose this livery for mine.

          • You can't put full figure pilots in it. The front pilot is above the front retract and steering servo. The rear is above the lipos. You could put the lipos further back in the fuselage but the nose would have to have a large amount of weight for proper CG. As I have said before, you can use a 4s set-up but for me it wasn't enough oomph. I tried different prop combos but none seemed like it was enough for my style of flying. I'm using the 5s set-up with HRB lipos. They aren't that expensive and have worked well for me in many applications. I have a VQ Beechcraft Bonanza with an E-Flite 46 using the same 5 cell lipos that I'm using for the Bronco so I have more than one plane on 5s.

            • Hello to all, i resume the building of the plane and at the moment i just install the nose gear cover. I needed to order a new cover since i broke the one that came with the plane.
              On the power setup, i plan to fly it on 6S 5000 . Click image for larger version

                    Apparently there were 2 both now retired from I understand.

                      I think the NASA OV-10s were both recalled and used in the 2015 mid east OV-10 experiment.
                      They are likely two of the four the US is selling off. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zon...being-sold-off

                      • After reading through the thread I thought this looks good, so ordered one.
                        Received big box and recommended servo's only to find the recommended servo's were standard size...…..wrong, should be micro ( they have changed web page now )
                        After a seniors moment I found some 5S battery's at HK. so now going with eflite power 46 and 100 amp ESC.
                        Question: When hooking up power do you Y lead the ESC's and Y lead the two battery's or is it one battery to one ESC ?
                        Well it's now a matter of waiting for the retracts to arrive at MRC, can't be much longer, surely.

                          In my case i will do 2 options, a " y " extension to be used with one 6s 6500, and in case i decide to use two 6s 5000mah i will connect them directly to the ESC'S.

                          • Thanks Wrangler1, was concerned about the current draw through the wires and connectors.
                            Next question is with two ESC's you have to cut out one of the red wires ( instruction manual page 43 ) I'm not sure why this is !!!

                              Is used in case you decide to use the ESC integrated BEC. So the receiver is connected to only one power supply. Is a common practice, but in my case due to the aircraft size and the time that i'm spending on it i choose to go with a separate power supply. A 2,500mah 3 cell Life attached to a 20amp Bec (was the one i have available). So in case something happens with the motor batteries i still have control.
