Thread OP

Idle hands > Eeer I mean idle printers !

My 3D printer has been idle for some time so I thought it was time to do that 3D printed plane thing .
Problem is , finding something that I want to print . Is going to be small and light enough to play with .
And no such animal exists !

I downloaded a lot of planes off Thingiverse , but most are incomplete . ( Not ready to print ) = This is the one I am printing out !
Completed fuse 01 last night , and am doing fuse 02 now . ( 74% complete )

Will see ...

Wingspan: 720 mm (920 mm when using Big Wing version)
Length: 578 mm
Est. weight: 450 g ( A little Porky Pig ) and is that flying weight or prinTED weight ?
CG: 26 mm

I like it and I am interested (I do not have a printer, but I know someone who has it). Please let me know if is is practically printable and how it flies.

I have printed Fuse 01 and 02 ( parts ) and they look ok .
Seem to be strong enough .
The only issue I see is weight and how well it will fly . ( Handle the weight )
Printing fuse 03 right now .

I have slowed my printer down to where I like it .
Once the fuse is completed I will post some pictures .
