How big a build plate is needed to print this plane

I just made one of these last night for my nephew. Other than having to get an extension ladder to pull if off the roof, it's been a non-stop favorite. I'm printing several more so there are spares when this one inevitably gets destroyed. (5 year old boys are hard on toys)

Note: Highly durable in a field or at the park. Only survives 5-20 minutes if there are sidewalks and streets to land on. Print spares. They're a quick print anyway.

INstructions unclear. No Idea how to build or fly... Im dying cuz I've got to actual graphical instructions

Is it possible to get a version of this split up into individual parts that would enable me to print it while now its mm's too big for my plate?
This looks awesome and i don't want to reduce the size of it if i don't have to?

really flew great.... until the garage roof interfered. It will be faster to print another than to wait for the wind to blow it off.

Could really use a build video. My vertical stabilizers don't seem like they fit/work at all.

This is such an awesome plane. One of the best to use with the launcher. Works great indoors for nice floaty glides. Wind really affects this one so it needs a really calm day to play.

nice plane, do not know why, but the vertical parts get lost in the slicer....

slicer sucks, Kisslic3r and you will never look back. machine even runs quieter running Kisslic3r(: some parts here are not in your photos?

You mention ABS but does this also work well with PLA?

It should. Many of my planes have been printed successfully in PLA, styrene, nylon, and even laywood wood composite filament....but they were designed for ABS. PLA will work assuming your printer is well calibrated, but be a bit heavier and more brittle.
