3D model description

SPECS:
Wingspan: 860mm
Length: 1210mm from exhaust to nose (without pitot)
Print weight: 1,2 kg of PLA+
With 6S - 5000mah and 80mm FMS fan : 2,7 Kg
CG: 20-30mm forward the forward hole under the wing (still being tested and tuned. 80-85 mm from the leading edge has been suggested but not tested yet).

Update 22.06.2022: Updated the PDF to include spar length, type and placements.

Update 07.06.2022: Added no landing gear inserts for those who wants to skip landing gear. See photo.

Update 13.05.2022: Wing1 has been split up into wing1-1 and wing1-2 for printers with less printspace than Prusa MK3S. Same print settings as for Wing 1.

Mine is printed with a Prusa MK3S with a bed size of 250 x 210 x 210 mm. Some parts need to be rotated to fit the bed.

The landing struts are homemade and a guide will come soon on those. They are made from standard aluminum pipes, m3 bolts and nuts, some grub screws and springs. Made with a standard drill and dremel tool.

Disclaimer
This is a complex plane to print and build. This should not be your first RC plane both to build and to fly. If used for tabletop display only, then its not so hard. A good tuned printer and good bed adhesion is recommended. Some afterwork on a few of the printed parts are necessary. Most parts are printed with 1 perimeter but see the print instruction for details for each part. This guide is not complete yet but it is a work in progress.
Large STL files due to some complex form and high resolution.

If you have any questions, just ask and I will try my best to help.
