RMI stood for Repülo Muszaki Intézet or Aviation Technical Institute. Aircraft were primarily (but not exclusively) designed for RMI by László Varga. As a result, RMI designs are often given the Varga name (in some cases, even when he was not a major designer).
RMI-1 X/H (unflown recce bomber with turboprops (Jendrassik CS-1), designed by Laszlo Varga, Sóstó-built prototype was re-engined with WM DB605s in 1944 but destroyed before flying)
RMI-2 X/G Honvéd - 1943 twin-engined crew trainer of mixed construction (wooden wings, steel tube fuselage structure). Prototype flew mid 1943. Destroyed by US bombing in 1944.
RMI-2 X/G - span: 14m, length: 10.6m, height: 3.5m, empty weight: 2,300 kg, T/O weight: 2,900 kg, maximum speed: 275 km/h, range: 600 km, ceiling: 6,000 m, 2 x 240 hp Argus As.10C
RMI-3 Z/G - divebomber trainer version of X/G, mixed construction, built '43, destroyed '44.
- NB: some sources call the RMI-3 Z/G the Fábián Honvéd. András Fábián did design a twin engined trainer (four delivered to the LüH but it's not clear if this was the RMI-3 design.
