This is great. You should try and do the BB8 and R2D2. I think they would look awesome on the back of a quad...

Hi, sorry for the delayed reply, I agree completely, I will work on it.

What layer height and slicer software did you use for this? I just tried printing it using slic3r at .25mm layer height and i had some issues. The little tabs didnt print, and once it got about 1/4 of the way through, the inner perim separated away from the rest. I looked at the preview in slic3r and it shows t his, so its not actually my printer. Theres also a weird hollow section in the head. Is that normal?

hi thehebs, sorry for such a delayed reply!

The hollow area is intentional, try printing with thicker walls so these areas that are separating can touch and give more strength.

I am not certain what you mean by 'tabs'. There are no tabs on the inside of the head, but there is a lip that goes around the entire base area, I glue this as well as it is a weak point.
