That's interesting to hear, the right and left halves are in fact the same, flipped in ReplicatorG. Let me know how it turns out with your new print!!!
Hey guys, I ahev just printed this off on my UP! printer and it looks amazing!! however the right hand side of the fuselage is no where near the same as the left hand side the quality between them is poles apart the left hand side is finished to good standard, where the right you can still see the support media very clearly as there is no top layer and both the main wing and the tailplane both have lot of support media and the quality is not as good as the other side.

This isnt a negative comment by any means I am letting you know hopefully something will be done before more people print it and get annoyed.

I m going to flip over the left hand side and see how that prints hopefully it'll be ok!!

Apart from that its a lovely thing to have around the office

Ma

Rory :-D
Might want to hire a new pilot, looks like he missed the water by about 100ft...

Instructions

  1. Print the float plate (contains left and right half of both floats)
  2. Print the left and right halves of the fuselage
  3. Print the propeller (using support material)
  4. Glue the float halves together - each float should have one solid piece and one with two holes
  5. Drill two 1/8 holes in each fuselage half at a 45 degree angle (couldn't model them directly, OpenSCAD winding order bug...)
  6. Glue the fuselage halves together
  7. Use 4 pieces of filament about 3/4 inch long to attach the floats to the fuselage
  8. Glue the prop on
