3D model description

Update: I changed Trunnion02 and Arm to make the operation better. Also, Trunnion02 and Rectractbases have integrated support blocks that are easy to remove after printing.

Here are all my scale accessories and spare part files I made for my Starmax F-5. The Freewing F-5 is the same size so some parts should work there too.

My tricked out Starmax F-5:

Retractbase01.STL - The mounting base for the retracts.
Retractbase02.STL - Mounting base for the main retracts with extra large surface area to spread the load of landing and prevent digging into the wing.
Trunnion02.STL - The rotating trunnion in the retracts. Use an M4 grub screw to secure the leg. Use 1,5 mm to 1,6 mm (1/16") wire through it.
Arm.STL - Actuation arm for the retract. Use 1,5 mm to 1,6 mm (1/16") wire through it.
Fork01.STL - Semi-ish scale front wheel fork.

Impeller12.STL - 12 blade fan which uses the stock shaft adapter.
Impeller13.STL - 12 blade fan which mounts directly onto the motor shaft. Use 3x6 to 310 10mm grub screws to secure it to the shaft.
Cone01.STL - Spinner for Impeller12.STL.
Fanhousing01.STL - Replacement fan housing. Reduced noise over the stock housing.

Wirecover01.STL - Spare cover for the wires under the belly of the plane.
Radiocover01.STL - Cover for the receiver compartment.
Batteryclip01.STL - Latch for the battery hatch.
Tailplatform01.STL - The flat part on top of the vertical stabilizer (google for images of the F-5 tail).

Wingtip01.STL - Wingtip weapon hard point.
Sidewinder01.STL - Sidewinder missile for the wingtips.
Tiptank01.STL - Tip tanks. The slot in one side indicates where to mount to the wing. Cut the wing or tank to fit like on the full size.

Required hardware through my affiliate links:
-Grub screws:
-1,6 mm Piano wire:
-Countersunk M3x8 screws:

3D printing settings

Print one perimeter and 0% infill for the decorative scale parts, and solid with three+ perimeters for the structural parts.

Use support under the Sidewinder fins.
