Oops, I was talking about the B24 files not the A10 files.

Anyway I grabbed what was there in the 2 zips and 45 minutes later I have these.
I tried .2mm layer height on these.
Standard, regular PLA white material.

Not sure what I should expect n
or what you expect,

Regardless it it what it is.

Hi all,
As I believe the all foam pivot for the wings will wear out pretty fast, I changed the pivot of the wings a little. I cut two sets of rings from interfitting PVC tubes (38-40 mm) and used a fine sandpaper to create some play, creating a sliding bearing. Glued the bearing in between the foam pivot. It's sturdy and it's smooth.

Excellent mod.

Pix ?

Somewhere way back around 2007ish I believe I used some polyacrylic plastic
to do a similar installation.
However, I wore out everything else before IT even got stressed.
I'd used Black Depron which is much less abrasion resistance with the benefit of being Lighter

This is such a nice simple design I am surprised that it is NOT getting much
discussion or seeing much activity.

C 'est la vie

I still fly mine occasionally. It still impresses onlookers.
