This is a model of the RQ-4B, from Northrop Grumman. These aircraft are absolutely huge and impressive - To say nothing of the political implications.

This model is set up to print on a 200mm x 200mm build plate, which pops out a print about 11" wide. Feel free to rotate and scale to your needs.

Doesn't Matter








When printed in the original orientation, the infill lines up with the fuselage, and looks kinda like ribbing. Neat!

Good job - but you will get more decent print quality if the model is split in half and printed with wings sticking upwards.

not sure of your scale size but hollow it out and cut sections then it could be flown for real.
good job

I want to remix it into pieces to print and fly it FPV. I have spare wings from a mini talon. Not entirely sure how to go about this, but would be amazing if it flew.

Haha, maybe. RC/Drones are a hobby of mine, so it's definitely something I'll think about.

The scale is right between "N" and "HO" model scales, or 1:131 scale. Of course, you can scale it up or down in your slicer of choice.

right but when you scale it up the walls will become thicker so scale it first then hollow it out maybe. the trick is how to make it connect each piece so it fits tight and you screw or glue it at that point. what type connections are used will make the difference on weight and flight times. hope someone can. id like to print the fpv version! :)

You're more than welcome to take a crack at it!
