Hi Wersy!

Thank you for such nice model. I really see engineering in development. For instance how wing built inside.
Currently I'm in progress of wing printing. Fin is printed out.
I have Wanhao Duplicator i3 with 0.4 mm nozzle.
In your comments looks like you have 0.5 mm.
So, I failed with layer 0.3 mm but got sucess with layer 0.2 mm.
Single shell with low speed as 20 mm/sec.

Could you be so kind to split tail part of fuselage? Max size of build area I have is 200x200x180 mm. If you havent time please advise the software to split it. Should fuselage be printed as single shell as well (apart join)? Will it be stiff enough to stay as single piece with dynamic forces in flight?

Could you say size of mount holes for motor? May be I can fit the Turnigy D2826-6 2200 kv. It has 16x19 mm mouning bolt circle.
An idea for further development: split fuselage near to motor mount and design different firewalls for different motors.

Could you also write a little about assembling of the plane? How fin should be fixed to fuselage? Screws, bolts with nuts, carbon rods and glue? What is used as hinges for evevons? 2mm carbon rods? At wing tips on photo I see white dots where spars ends. I checked that 4mm carbon fiber tube fits fine inside but they are black. What do you used in wing assembling?

Thanks for your help in advance!
