MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
DISCLAIMER: I highly recommend that you have experience with flying model aircraft. This is NOT a beginner plane and will most like end in a failure if you are not familiar with flying model aircraft. Fly at your own risk.
The CG position is marked on the bottom of the fuselage with 2 circle cut outs.

NOTE, the fuselage and canopy will require supports. I printed the canopy with the motor mount on the bed and supports from the bed to the rear of the wing. The canopy will require support for the overhang in the center and for the small tab. All other parts can be printed without support.
