This model is designed to be a 3D printed accessory for the FT Mini Pietenpol RC foam board airplane designed by Josh Bixler of Flite Test. Josh designed a Model A engine for the Pietenpol using Flite Test foam board. While this works to capture the basic look, Josh was looking for something a little more detailed. This is my first 3D model designed specifically for 3D printing.
