The Skystar is a fully printable remote control airframe
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
Still to do:
Print each part using the least material possible to save weight. attach control surfaces, electronics, and motor. then take to the skys with a 3d printed plane.
