NA Rockwell OV-10 "Bronco"

404k BogdanX  1.5 years ago

North American (Rockwell)

[Twin-turboprop light attack, observation aircraft, developed in the 1960s also used for counter-insurgency (COIN) combat and forward air control (FAC)]

Controls:

VTOL Down - Flaps (20° - 40°)
TRIM - Trimming
Brake/1 - Airbrakes (Spoilers)
7 - Jettison Missiles
8 - Lights

Features:

  • 666 parts (To match the EVIL theme of the challenge)
  • Optics pod with Infra-red camera auto-following selected target
  • Advanced flight model (correct takeoff/landing behavior, acceleration, max speed, gliding etc)
  • Control surfaces mechanics, especially the notorious rotating spoilers
  • Basic interior with functional AO and controllers. Dummy pilots with custom helmets
  • Aim-9B Sidewinder Missile with [WarHawk95] help. Check his ultra-realistic weapon posts. Still, unlike the original (early sidewinder model), this missile can actually turn and hit something.
    Forgot to scale the missile part evenly (0.x,0.x,0.x), explosion is odd

    Thank you WarHawk95, EternalDarkness, KnightOfRen for support

    Every time I see how amazing the glass looks it gives me a little ego boost. I mean no no, uh... I'm just happy for you all.. yeah. Nice plane.

    @BogdanX Got it. I’m not sure as to the level of detail and functionality I’m going to be able to reach (e.g. neat little features like a fire-spotting camera), but I am going to give it my best as a semi-beginner. Might take me a while, too.

    So thanks a lot for now!

    Hello good sir,
    I was wondering if perhaps I could use the basic structure of this excellent build in order to turn it into a civilian version, namely the OV-10 serving with Cal Fire as a firespotting plane (which I think is quite awesome)?

    I will make sure to credit your work, if course. If you’d like, I can make it a successor, too, although there will likely be rather heavy modifications what with all the more recent stuff like fuselage slicing, cockpit parts and all. What do you say?

    Cheers

    Yeah, but he can do what he wants, at the end of the day it’s his choice. But you can go to his channel “Bogdan Flo” to see it @Jerba

    Your post has been removed. Please read these rules about posting planes.
    Please try to make major changes to a plane before posting it. Simply painting an object a different color, or adding a few guns is not enough to consider it your own. In the future please credit the original maker, and try to post your own work

    Awesome job! The glass is probably the best part, but its hard to pick a favorite! Overall it's beautifully constructed; perfect balance between elegance and function
