What tolerances do you use

This is really great project ;-)

Thank you


My name is Fred, I run the plans site AeroFred.com

A few months ago I opened a category for printable models and parts, would you like to add your models there?

This is the category:

You will have to register to be able to upload.

It would be great to have your models there since it´s a specialised model airplanes website with many visitors and modellers even those more into the traditional building methods are starting to wake up to 3d printing... Finally :)

Please let me know if you need help to share the models.

Kind regards,

What material did you use?

I used PLA and is sufficiently strong, but i suppose ABS works too.

What a great project ! Thank you. We will build a few for sure !

Thank you, looking forward to others trying this.

it would be great if we could see a video of one of these flying

Just uploaded a video showing it fly. Managed to crash it hard on this one video and broke the prop shaft so can't make a better video ahah. I am pretty much a newbie with just a few months flying experience. And pardon the terrible video framing.

I have worn out three Vapors by flying them so much. Great fun!

I have the smaller version now and, to me, it flys too fast. I'm thinking about scaling your design up so that is the same size or slightly larger than the original.

Nice design!

Yess! The Vapor is really fun to just relax and fly around the house, good for learning too which i am. Decided to try the smaller version to see if it's better to fly at home. Making it bigger is a good idea but i will be concerned with the weight as it is currently 20g with a130mah lipo which is double the original Eflite UMX vapor weight, Hence decided on using the Parkzone power plant with j3 cub motor as that is the recommended upgrade for Parkzone night vapor which is twice the size. Luckily this setup still has enough power!
