Tried printing the eared version today. Warped about the same for me, but I'm using an oddball build surface.
The can come very handy for not so fine tuned printers too. I used them in

, and yes, just make it one layer thick and then they are very easy to remove or you may just keep them.

Yeah, completely eliminated the warping for me. They cut off easily with snips or if you're really careful you can bend them till they snap off. Only remaining problem is I still got a few cracks forming in the wings. I wonder if a vertical ridge near the end of the fins would help prevent the cracks without effecting flight?

Instructions

You're going to need almost the entire print area of a ToM - so countersunk bolts would be really handy or else the nozzle might collide with your bolt heads.

Just print it and then snap/cut off the thin disks.

Mouse ears seem to be working. Probably flies just fine with them on, too :)

This seems small enough that if that perimeter line was omitted there wouldn't be an issue...
Yeah without the outline, you should be good.
