great looking plane so did it fly? i want to build this but i would like to know first if it flew well and how long it will fly on what lipo?

Hello, i am planning on building this plane but i cant find the printable nose section. Where can i find it?

Might print this for my dad

i like your plane great work

hi Koo.. its not tubing.. its a heat shrink adhesive film.

What size heat shrink tubing did you use for the wings and body.

Updated instructions posted.

If anyone can work on the nose section stl that would be great... am having trouble with Sketch Up in refining the design to add a 3mm shelf at the firewall location to screw a cowling onto.

 Pleasure Kool..:) glad you like it.. :) watch out for the updated files... new rudder, tail fin and tail section loaded today.... taking out a bit of weight and improving operational fit.. :).

This is Awesome! My Father owned a hobby shop for years and had to build these things the "old fashioned" way for customers.Wait til I print up one and send it to him...he's gonna be so pissed! As stated previously, what a fantastic idea. Makes me want to build a printer for my Dad. Thank you for your time and effort.

instructions not published yet, am compiling them as I complete the revisions to the stl files.. I expect they will be available this week as the material I am waiting on from HKG should arrive shortly.

You mention a pdf with instructions, where can I find it?

hi bigjon... thanks.. :) am getting the hang of it now, after 6 fairly long months.. !.

Caution when printing, is still a work in progress.. posting updated tail fin and rudder as well as the tail fin bracket shortly.. will also need to modify the elevator files so they can support a carbon strut as they were too big to fit on the build plate... Cheers.. Chris

What a fantastic thing! this could push things to a new level, with a whole new group of nerds to attack with 3d printing!!!

I'm going to build one asap

Thanks for your time devoloping this
