Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa - Control line scale club racer model.
Quote: - "Dear Steve and Mary, hope that you are going very well and strong as ever. This time I'm sending you the Nakajima Hayabusa controline model plan, plane that was designed, developed and made by Sergio Daeuble. The project was made fullfill two goals: 1 - Be a compact scale plane for engines in the 15 to 25 range and 2, Serving as Club Racer in a category that is growing fast here in Brazil; the "Corrida Maluca" (that means "Crazy Race"). Some of its rules are, maximum wingspan of 70 cm, plain bearings engines up to .25 cu.in. displacement. Model must have a built up wing, no solid ones allowed. The heats must have 8 minutes duration and the fuel fillings are limited by 4 wich 4 siringes of fuel with 20 cc each is given to each mechanic before the beginning of the heats. The fuel is furnished by the organization and is composed by 80% Methanol and 20% castor oil, no nitromethane allowed.
The plane flew beautifully and is a very nice sight in the air, and at this point the wings dihedral gave an elegant class touch in its flyings, with the plane flying very aligned and fast. Hope that you like this very nice project as much as we do. Im attaching several of the available pictures from the Hayabusa available from our local controline forum, the VCC Online, so you can select the best ones [model photo] ...The engine used in the model is a very good Thunder Tiger 15 GP"

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.
