3D model description

"The Horten H.IX, RLM designation Ho 229 was a German prototype fighter/bomber initially designed by Reimar and Walter Horten to be built by Gothaer Waggonfabrik late in World War II. It was the first flying wing to be powered by jet engines."

This is my attempt to make a fully 3D printable version of this iconic airplane.

These are the files for the full model but there will be a few updates to it.

NOTE: I have not flow this model yet as we are still under lockdown and cant get the final parts I need to finish my model.

Updates to this model will be free for download.
Updates to come will be fuse 2-3 battery compartment and Fuse 5 rear retract mounts.

All servo's used are STD size except for the drag rudders they use Micro. That is if you want to make the functional.

Retracts are STD 40 electric and almost every brand should fit perfect.

Twin 80mm 12 EDF's are required with a minimum static thrust of 2.5kg per unit.
Battery setup will be 2 6cell or you can play around and see what works best for you.
The main spar is a 11.8mm Carbon rod or Alu tube

NOTE!! Have updated the CG location Doc.

Any flying videos yet?

According to 5th image the span is 2280mm.

Do you have manual available?

Glad they work haha, Sometimes file go weird when you export them. Yes windows 3d builder is a handy little tool, sorts a model out asap. Just check I've uploaded a new test file with the updated Fuse 2 sections. Free download on my page

Hi. Thanks, it works now. The parts now get sliced correctly in Cura and in Prusa Slicer! I didn't even know of Windows 3D Builder, seems like a handy little tool. Thanks again.

HI, Just had a look at the files and something weird is going on with the New version of Cura. A simple fix for the files that hae small holes in them. Open the file with Windows 3D Builder, It will ask for a repair. Do the repair and save the file as a STL again replacing the existing file. open in Cura and you should be able to print the perfect with or without top and bottom layers in normal mode. let me know if you get them sorted, if not I'll mail you the repaird files from my side

Hi. I tried slicing the Horten in Cura and in Prusa Slicer with your recommended Settings. Sadly, neither works correctly. The thin walls don't get sliced correctly. There's lots of gaps in the outer walls of the sliced object. Activating thin wall detection doesnt help... What am I missing? Thanks.
