If anyone is interested, I will post the stl files on my website for anyone to print their own. Otherwise I can make one for you if you cover the costs.
Well..I can comment as to how well this design works. I got my hands on the STL files, and having recently completed my MendelMax printer, this was one of the things on the short list for me to print
I had 3 good flights this afternoon, and the unit did well. The third one ended in a crash due to my own stupidity (forgot you need to keep power on even when landing...old airplane habits)
I want to get some more time on it before I think about any changes, since this is my first vector kite of any sort. I do, however, want to look at scaling it down some, to use a couple of smaller motors I have and match those up with some small kites for backyard fun....
