Hi friends.

​The Japanese fleet has always fascinated me and I'm excited to finally bring one to you all! In form with my previous designs, I chose a subject that is less represented in the model community as a whole and specifically in the DTF area. So please, enjoy this plane and share your build here in this thread!

If you like this design then perhaps you’ll like some of my others as well.

Novice – You’ve flown a plane but have no experience with scratch building
Intermediate – You’ve flown and built a few FT style planes before
Advanced – You’ve mastered the standard FT build style and are looking for a new challenge

Expert – You’ve mastered all build techniques and aren't afraid to improvise or tackle tedious builds

This is a intermediate to advanced build.

FAQ
[HR][/HR]
Is this a swappable?
It will accept a FT power pod as well as a new pod I have designed. The new pod is larger to accommodate a bigger battery.

Is this a good plane for a beginner to fly?
No. It's a bit too advanced for a beginner.

How do I know if I should use aluminum or basswood?
200-500w = basswood
500+ = aluminum

Are flaps required?
No, but they do help! If you're going for a heavier/faster setup, I would suggest adding them.

There is a plane I want you to design, what’s the best way to suggest it to you?
Please use the request form here on my site.

Thanks for checking out the nnKi-61! If you built one of my planes and enjoyed it please consider donating a few bucks so I can buy more supplies to make more great planes.

I'm going to go on record here and say that I'm interested in any design you think of :p I like seeing some of the "less famous" warbirds in RC!

Some more details
Wing span is 1000mm, basic fowler flaps, 4-6 channel, runs off a 2200 3s up to 3300 4s.

Plans will be free and I'll have a build video to accompany.

Canopy/hatch is 100% scratch and easy to build:

Nick,
That canopy looks great. Now that you have added more designs to your list I wondered which have the best flight characteristics?

The nnChipmunk v2 is my favorite so far in terms of feel. John is a big fan of the 61 though, I haven't flown it yet but will soon!

Just right. I've started to play more with wing attack angle to correct the need for down thrust. So from the nnChipmunk v2 moving forward all my designs will not require down thrust.

I'm trying to see if I can program the transmitter to eliminate the need for both. I like when the spinner fits flush against the nose of the aircraft.

:applause: It's an awesome plane and I'm looking forward to the plans! ;)

There are a lot of paint schemes available for the Tony!




The decision will not be easy! :confused:
