just wondering how well does this plane glide?

It doesn't glide very well. The airframe is fairly heavy and the power system is designed to handle it, but there's a lot of weight to the aircraft.

ive started printing this off, got the fpv canopy and the front fuselage printed off and am ont the main fuselage section..... how wide is the fuselage meant to be as im looking at the mounting holes for the motor and thinking they look awfly wee.....
cura is saying the main fuselage section is 40x50x145mm. is this correct?

The mounting holes for the motor are designed for a 1506 sized motor which has a smaller mounting plate than a standard 2206 sized motor. Those dimensions are correct.


only motors ive seen in the flesh are the ones on my 450 quad drone... had that moment off.... is this an american model and the sizing is off by 2.5???

ill hopefully have it mainly done this week... will post photos.... and mabye a video if i ever fly it...

The sizing is not off, 1506 motors have 16mm diameter on the mounting holes, as seen here: https://img.staticbg.com/images/oaupload/banggood/images/C3/D2/f2a30cd7-ec0b-43f4-b3e5-b563fba133f3.png

This model requires a 1506 or similar motor, and will not work with 450 quad motors.

Hey, Thank you for your great design!
I've a problem with my prints, I notices there are some gaps between some layer, check the attached pictures.
My settings:
Resolution: 0.2
Perimeter: 2
Top and Bottom layers: 2
Infill: 10%
Printings temp: 195
speed: 60 mm/s
Bed temp: 60
Cooling: 0% for FPV cockpit, 40% for front fuselage.

Thank you very much!

You could try doing more top and bottom layers, but that will make the aircraft heavier. It could help you get the CG forward enough to fly though.
