Mordecai Murphy's Dart
by buffington, published
The goal is to recreate the model in way that allows for most, if not all, of the parts to be 3D printed and flyable using current micro RC electronics.
Where possible, parts have been designed to negate the need for rafts or support material.

Â Noooo,Â if you did that, you would double the chord yes, but the airfoil would be symetrical.Â So how is it the same?Â
I reckon for starters just stick with flat on the bottom -- it works fine for the Zaerotech Z22:Â http://zaerotech.com/design/Za...

The ribs of the wing are about 0.56mm thick - which is about the thinnest wall I've been able to get out of my Makerbot Replicator.
Layer height: 0.2mm
Extra shells: 0
Raft: no raft or support material
It's worth noting that the airfoil on this wing is prone to funky stall behavior. The original design uses a more symmetrical airfoil. But the flat bottom airfoil prints really well, so maybe it's worth it?
