+ Finding the balance between weight and strength has been very difficult. The top and bottom skin of the wings are ~1mm thick and I have been able to print them reliably. Still working on making the fuselage lighter.
+ Saving weight is the name of the game here. I will be modifying the files, especially the fuselage, reducing material where I can. That being said, this model will be **absurdly heavy** the hope is to have a plane that flies, is easy to assemble, and if it breaks, simply print a repair piece
+ The plane is designed to be modular, wing and fuselage sections can be added or removed to create the size model you want. I will be adding different airfoils as the project progresses
Still to do:
* Finish control surfaces
* Make fuselage more aerodynamic
* Make areas for servos, receiver, and battery hatch
* landing gear struts
* reduce weight
* add engine mounts
Suggestions and comments are very welcome :)

Yes, it flies. Mount the battery a little farther back to balance the cg.. Waiting for a break in work to continue work on this project
can we have some confirmation that this actually flies once assembled and electronics are installed?
