Guys can you make it a Carrier Capable aircraft?

I would love to land this on a Carrier.
adding Tail-hook and Launchbar would be nice. :D :D

You can land the Bronco on a carrier without a hook. If you use the whole deck and touch down around 75 kt., there's just room. It can just manage to take off that way, too. But no one adds hooks to aircraft that never had them in real life.

Wikipedia wrote:The OV-10 can perform short takeoffs and landings, including on aircraft carriers and large deck amphibious assault ships without using catapults or arresting wires.

oh... I taught it has a hook because I watched a video of a OV-10 landing on a carrier (FSX).... I taught it has a hook sorry. :oops:

That's OK, some of us like the challenge of landing non carrier aircraft on carriers.. :twisted:

OV-10 is actually capable of operating from carriers, which the Navy actively used. You can find photos of carrier Broncos.

Also, is the project abandoned for good and if not, who's the current developer? I'd like to help developing it.

Hi SCG, I was the primary developer of that model, which I started about ten years ago. Feel free to do whatever you want with it. It has a GPL license. The model was based on a very old and low-poly model by "Capt. Slug".

Yes, Broncos operated from carriers as a test. They had no hook and no catapult attachment (AFAIK).

I may be the last person to do any modeling work for the Bronco. At the request of Farmboy, I replaced the crude landing gear with a more realistic set and replaced the propellers with a better set. Maybe a few other things. It looks like those changes made it into the Flightgear repository. Farmboy is probably the last person to work on the OV-10 package, but sadly he's been retired from Flightgear for two years now due to personal time commitments.

The model is actually 4 separate models, which makes working on it a pain. I think the Bronco would be better-served if it were a single model with optional sub-model components imported via XML, even if this means sacrificing a variant or two. This would make the package size smaller and make model maintenance much easier.

I had an interest in maintaining and re-building the OV-10, but I could not locate high fidelity scale drawings of the aircraft or a flight manual. It would be great to see someone take up work on the Bronco again.

For future reference Avialogs.com has a pilots checklist and a flight manual: OV-10D Bronco.

I know this post is old. Is the OV-10 not compatible with FG 2016.1? I can't get it to start.

There are two toggle switches just in front of (and partially hidden by) the throttle quadrant. Click on the base of each switch to start the engines.

OV-10 is not working for me in FG v 2019.1.1

What is that starting number "81.44" & "801" in "fg_props.hxx:801:Failed to tie property /sim[0]/systems[0]/....."

81.44 is the timestamp of the error, while 801 is the line number of the C++ code.
Those warnings are harmless, anyway.

Where did you get this aircraft from, the launcher or elsewhere?
