    Will have a wingspan of 8 feet, RC with 2 ducted fans. The plans were developed from 3-views and alot of time.

    Hi,

    It seems that the plane is still a big secret of USSR.I've gone through many sources both Russian and others and have found nothing detailed.I hope that the small number of pics will help indeed.

    Have the compound curves around the intakes ruffed in and a little skin on.

    Will have a hatch behind the canopy as well as one below, also a large hatch on top of the wing / rear fuselage to add all the power goodies.

    Retracts are soooo expensive!!!!

    :rolleyes:

    Took awhile to ruff in the rear with all the compound curves, but fun....

    Still looking for any more info on the M-55 that might be on the net, photos,
    drawings, blueprints, etc.
