Very breakable. Not nearly as hardy as other flexi. Mine broke in the middle with only moving it a little bit.

Hmm, that's odd.. and you printed at .2mm resolution in the original scale with at least 2 shells? While they're not intended to be super tough (for example if you bend it in a half circle and squeeze it will most certainly break a hinge, since I didn't fillet the bottom edges) it's stood up well in normal use so far.. I just grabbed one by the tail and flapped it reasonably roughly side to side more than a dozen times with no issues. Just curious to see if we can identify whether it's a setting thing or whether I should look at making a V2 with more robust hinges if people are having issues..

Yes, I did that. I am using PLA. It looked great, but I did very little before it broke. I didn't check the other hinges because I will probably just lay this on my shelf because it looks good. When people pick it up and it breaks in the middle I'll yell at them and ask them what they did :) Already did that to my son.
