surely it's a little futuristic plane ! ;DWurger said:Hi Borovik,
as usual, incredible stuff. The "Tsar Ptitsa" in it`s many variants. Makes me day dream. The K-15 is realised in kit form by Igor Shestakov`s Unicraft Models. Take a look at this magnificent project: http://www.geocities.com/unicraftmodels/on/k15/k15.htm
Thank you very much Borovik, for sharing this.

Anyone can give a me reason ? ???
K-15 really futuristic and undervalued project, deserving separate topic. Long before Lippish and brother Horten , for the first time in the world and exactly in USSR offered delta wing (the Project SAM-4 "Sigma" Moskalev’s had rather ogival form.)surely it's a little futuristic plane !
what was about the unknown project,K-8 ?.
An initial projects were except final seven of the motor version with four and seven ( all frontal) engines. All foto & drawings from:V.Savin “Planeta “Konstantin”Kalinin K-7 was with 7 x 750 ? It's new for me, all sources that i know speak about six !
source sameIn 1928 , Kalinin prepares the draft K-6 under development in two variants postal and bombing... On designs K-6 was a development to models K-4 with multiple element installed on plane K-5 that simplified the building of the plane.

redstar72 said:hole in the ground said:I am pretty confused about the wing control surfaces. From google's translation of the russian from airwar.ru it sounds like the junkers type surfaces are the elevons whilst the controls attached to the wings seem to be the flaps.
Can anyone confirm if this is the case?
The red parts are ailerons. The blue parts are elevators.
The yellow parts are deflectable part of the wing, which could be swiveled by the pilot on angle from +3 to -5 deg. for longitudinal trim of the aircraft. These parts served the function of horizontal stabilizer, and were called “suspended stabilizer”.
