nice model, but I have tried 2 verions of slic3r and it will give me 2 layers for the wings but only 3 not 4 on the wing tip reinforcements? i took a look in netfab and it appears the wing tips are only .5mm? so would need a .125 layer?

I think I know what the issue is - I have a fractional first layer ratio set, .6 ish, I think (slicer is busy right now) . 3 Layers should work too, but the cg might end up a bit aft due to the thicker first layer. If you cant get it to fly stable, try a tiny bit of weight forward. (on a tiny flying model like this, the details count)
