This is a micro scale RC airplane designed to essentially snap together from common hobby store supplies. It can be assembled with the aid of a little superglue reinforcement in under 20 min post printing.
Printed using Tough Resin on a Form 1, I'm fondly calling her the 'Air-Form 1.'
It took 3 design iterations but this final version is a superb flyer. weighing roughly 60 grams, she is a micro plane but the dihedral wing make her very stable even in a couple kts of breeze.
The motor mount/gearbox, wing clamp, and both the rudder and elevator hinges and clips were all printed out with tough resin. The main body is a rectangular carbon fiber rod and the wings are 2 rectangular balsa sheets. The motor and gearing is a replacement motor/geartrain for a laTrax quadcopter. The receiver is a specktrum ar6410
flight time: 11min
3/32in X 7/32in X 3ft rectangular carbon rod
3/16in carbon tube
7/64 carbon rod
3ft X 3in X 3/32 balsa board
1/32in music wire
I'm hoping to add landing gear in the future!
Watch the scale! Dimensions are all in mm but you may need to scale the parts 10X if they appear too small. For reference, the squared dimensions of the motor mount part should be about 10.5x15x26mm
