Boy; talk about obscure. That took some digging! Thanks; Ernie P.


The Ikarus Ĺ*M was a 1920s Yugoslavian biplane flying boat built by Ikarus Tvornica Aero i Hydroplana and used for training by the Royal Yugoslav Navy.

The Ĺ*M (for Ĺ*kolski Mercedes en:School Mercedes) was the first design of Josif Mikl for the Ikarus company, it was a side-by-side two-seat biplane flying boat powered by a 100 hp (75 kW) Mercedes engine.

The aircraft were used by the Royal Yugoslav Navy as a basic trainer up to the outbreak of the Second World War. In 1941 a small number of aircraft were captured by Italian forces but they were not used.

Good work! 

I had not heard of this aircraft until recently, so I figured it would be a good candidate for this forum! 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikarus_ŠM

Looks like an interesting aircraft and something that I would like to model quite soon. (this weekend, in fact....)

You're up Ernie!

Thank you, Sir. It did take a bit of work. This may be an easy question, or a hard one; it's kind of hard to tell. Thanks; Ernie P.


This aircraft was unique. It was also one of the most significant and influential aircraft ever flown. And yet, it is one of the least known.

Question: What aircraft do I describe?

Clues:

(1) Truly one of a kind.

(2) Developed from a rather common airframe.

(3) Flew research missions for many years.

BTW; do you have a good photo of the plane? You're going to build an RC model of it? What scale? Thanks; Ernie P.

In my mind, I have an image of an airliner with a fighter jet radar mounted on the nose... but I cannot find what it is...

Here is a picture of the previously noted aircraft, the Ikarus SM.
Yes, I plan on building a model very shortly - It will have a fifty inch wingspan and be electric. I'm not sure as to construction yet, but it will probably be all balsa and ply. It looks like it has good dimensions for conversion and is definitely different. I want a scale seaplane other than the dozens of Cubs on floats, or an ARTF. As such, I think it looks rather pretty.

Oooohhh... You really are trying to think outside the box. I love the thought process, but no. Thanks; Ernie P.

(6) Flown by perhaps more different pilots, and test pilots than any individual aircraft in history.

Okay; thanks. I agree with you; it looks... perhaps elegant is a good word. That stately appearance some of the early aircraft had about them. If you made up a scale looking engine "box", you could mount a inrunner inside and run the wires up from the fuselage. Please keep us informed about your progress. I'd really like to see how this project turns out. Thanks; Ernie P.

How about the c-140 jetstar general purpose airborne simulator?

Would that be a E.E. Canberra or Martin B-57? Perhaps you want a specific variant such as the NASA WB-57

Nope; not the Canberra or B-57. I am looking for a variant, however. This was a single plane, one of a kind; developed from a rather common airframe. Thanks; Ernie P.
