Um, .stl file are tiny little text files. Probably take up less space on here than this post.


Edited for spelling, they should not have put the 't' key so close to the 'r' key.

Whaaat ? I missed your point.

What I thought was the suggestion to rename stl to txt just to get past RDG restrictions .
that wouldn't change the size.

Not talking about size. The forum will only accept certain file TYPES. I have no idea if .stl files are allowed or not. If not allowed, I posted how to get around the problem.

new PC6 turbo porter 1.5m (3d printed mix)

Video added in the first post.
I donít have a camera man , only static phone camera.
The first section (no red and black strip in the fuselaje) is the second flight . It flew with a Rctimer BC2830-8 1300kv 275w and 8x4 propeller. It flew ok but need more power to climb in a stepper angle to abort landings and accept floats.

Then I upgraded with a Dualsky Eco 2814 C. 1200kv 350w and 9x6 prop. A huge difference in performance. A secondary effect is battery position, not yet in the nose, more close to the CG a lot more easy to balance with different batteries.

Thanks for the video. Looks like she flys quite well. Comes in bit hot for landing in spite of those nice flaps though. I'm thinking she is bit nose heavy?

For me the Porter PC-6 is all about the BIG flaps and low speed flying performance.

Otherwise it's just another High wing trainer.

Doing super low speed Hi AoA landings while thumbing your nose at Gravity is the trill !

Just like in the movie Air America with Mel Gibson.

So a LIGHT build with an OVER POWERED motor prop combo is a necessity ! heh heh heh :>}}}}}}
