I added aileron wings now. Took longer than I thought to make the change, but it's done now. I reduced the dihedral to 4 total as well. Bend 2 mm piano wire or similar to the shape of usual sport plane aileron torque rods. They should click into the slots on the underside of the wing. Thinner rod can also be used, down to 1 mm, since it's such a small plane, with some kind of sleeve to reduce the fit of the channel. I split up the ailerons in the same place as the wing parts so that multi color printing will align. Use ca hinge for the ailerons.

Any possible build videos or build pics of it? So far F1, F2, Nose and Motormount look good. I'll post pics soon. Thanks again, this is a real joy. Joe

Would you consider a straight wing Mod with ailerons? Just as a option. Progression design for training new pilots.

So here is a peculiar happening. Stringing on one side only.

Is this a plug to cut out for air circulation in the electric set up option?

Building at 135% does have its challenges. Using an Ender 3 Pro. Just under max volume. Vibration at top end.

Yes you should cut away the end of that plug. It also helps with aligning the nose piece.
