Thanks for your comment - I am glad you liked my work

hello, I've been analyzing the project, it's spectacular level of detail, congratulations, excellent work.

does this easily scale down?

I know some people use a 0,4mm nozzle with 0,25mm line width and 0,1mm layer, but I have no experience.
You must use the settings in the documentation or the plane will be to heavy.

Do you think it would be possible to print all the plane with 0.4 nozzle without compromazing weight?

The plane is build for:
Motor DYS 3536 1000kv, 10x6, 50amp esc, 4s-4000 nanotech.
Servos 8x MG90s
Servoless retracts.
I use Taranis with 3 receivers. 1 in the fuselage and 1 in each wing.

There is a complete bill of material in the manual.

What's the recommended hardware (servo, lipo packs, motors, esc)?
