Heavily inspired by some images from 2008 i came across on the net i have been wanting to 3D model and build this for many years. I've been working on this for nearly 2 years in odd moments when i have time
Update2 > uploaded the cosmetics ( tank, seat etc) All the new files have the number "2" as a prefix.
Ive also, alongside the original, added a 2 part version of the battery compartment for easier printing
Update1 > FC PDB base is now Rev1a = Original had FC board in stl Oops Good now
The main frames are printed from ABS to be durable but this definitely isn't something that will survive hard landings or crashes very well.
I have only provided left hand side parts so certain items need to be mirrored
The main frame prints flat on a 200 X 200 bed It then carefully needs to be heated and bent . Info on bending attached in drawing
Obviously had to adapt a few things to make it fly but the core layout is intact.
Most joints are either solvent or friction welded
Here's a link to friction welding https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj9TMmUldhc
I printed the main frames from ABS with 80% infil.
Once the main skeletal frame was built i adjusted for warping with a hot air gun
The outrigger struts ar 3mm OD solid carbon fiber rod and the rear yaw drive shaft it carbon tube 5 mm OD / 3mm ID
