I started printing this and I am very pleased with how the parts were designed to print well. Once I have it printed I will take some pictures of the parts and once I have it assembled I will upload a flying video.

Has anyone redesigned the gcode fuselage replacing the need for rubber band holding the wing for the 3dlabprint planes? (specifically the me109)? Perhaps with using bolts or screws?

Also, anyone have gcode for fuselage that uses a "hatch" system for the battery <like regular RC planes where you undo the hatch to slide the batt in>? So you don't have to remove the wing to replace the battery?

I'm in the middle of printing the 109 (wings done) and now I just noticed the stock fuselage is lacking these features.

Thanks for any help.

Really NICE rifleman_btx!!

Can you provide any details - print material, adhesive and equipment used?
It's in my list for next winter printing..

Sure, i used pla2 from filacube, just used common superglue with activator. The fan and esc were freewing 90mm 12 blade, with 130A esc, and freewing servos all around, reversing servos where needed in the elevator, air brakes and flaps to cut the need for so many channels in the receiver. 2 5500 3s 45c packs

Thanks!
Judging by the sound - you could cruise around at 50-60% of throttle?
How do you judge your slowest speed in turn (researching a bit - that is a thing to be most aware with those swept wings)?

I find it held up to slow speed quite well. And it will definitely cruise very well at half throttle, and the airbrakes are fairly effective yet no adverse effect to yaw or pitch. Well designed plane

Just remember to keep the throws smaller, she reacts very quickly to input even at 45% expo. I would start at 50% and adjust from there. Atleast until use to the quick reactions.

Yes, thanks for that reminder - that is what 3dlabprint also recommend in their manual - and most of pilots found to be true.
Another thing - because of precise nature of 3D print (and if built correctly) - it appears that no or almost no trim required ..
We have a bit lousy weather now - maybe I can start printing earlier ..
