Tachikawa Ki-55 Ida - Scale model for radio control.
Quote: - "The simplicity and docile handling of the Ida are what we seek in a scale model aircraft. Designed around the OS 108 for reliability, the model presented here is an excellent choice for operation from small grass flying fields. It is just big enough to meet the IMAA criterion for giant scale. Its traditional wood construction is familiar to modellers with some scale model building experience. It is well suited to casual sport flying as well as serious sport scale competition. The model was designed by enlarging the Koku-Fan drawings and filling in the structure so all dimensions are exactly scale. By the addition of surface detail it could be adapted to precision scale..."

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
