Thanks for nice words.

Sorry no video - You will have to see the one on the first page again.

I choose to upload the plane to Cults3D since Thingiverse was slooow. Now Cult3D has been down for the last 12hrs or so I guess it's hard to run a webpage with the amount of data that is moved.

I'd like to. However, it's down on the list given it sounds like at least one or two pieces I might have to split to print on my Prusa M3ks unless that has changed.

Not made for small printers, parting it will ad a lot of weight.

I would love to build one, but I donít have a printer. Do 3D printing services exist that could do it affordably?

I am a big commander fan, and you did a great job with it.

Nice work, I might build this after the b25. I can't believe your giving it away for free, I would have paid for it.

Aerofred does a printing service.

And there was a guy out in Calif that was doing it too.

I'd try doing one of these just for ME, but, I am put off by the .25-.3 nozzle requirement.

Guess I'm just lazy that way.
I have smaller than .4 nozzles but I'm just not keen on trying them out, ya know.

Maybe You and Lockey could get together test drive his new Anycubic Predator .

I printed a set of Lockeys parts for a guy in Arizona but that
was the 1st time I ever did a print for an actual customer.

This Model looks very very nice but it also looks like it's going to be a
real fussy process to wade into.
AKA a big project to tackle.

That and every MODEL Aero Commander that I have ever seen was a real Tip stall nightmare.

Commanders can definitely be vulnerable to tip stalling unless they are built right. I believe the real aircraft has around 6.5 degrees of washout in the wing which wasnít transferred to most of the RC models. The Bridi model did not have the washout, and it was very prone to tip stalling. The Palmer model that this one was modeled after has the full washout in it, and I have heard it flies great. You can see from the video that this model has good slow flight capabilities.

The construction of this plane is differentieret.
The plane is modelled solid and it is printed with 1shell and 3-5% infill.

The 0,25 nozzle prints slow, and it takes a little time to get dialed in with PID tune an linear advance. When the printer is dialed in and run 24/7 the plane is done in a few weeks depending on your printer. Remember you dont need to change prints every 10hrs.


This one has 7 degress washout just like the Palmer. The second one I build was heavier and it got nervous when it slowed down in hot weather, but never with the flaps out.
I have flown it in 32c temperatures and it did great.
I live in Denmark close to sea level presure.
