I loved the idea the dremel devil http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:266035
I wanted a more efficient model in flight and a more effective system of launch.
The propeller mounts easily to 30m , no need to put any puissace on the dremel .
To fly the propeller, just turn on the drill. When you're ready for take off , simply turn off the dremel to free the propeller.


I printed my prop with pla 100% infill without support. ABS shoud be good too.

This thing works so well. I flew it for the first time today and it flew at least 300 ft.

I actually like it better than the original one :) Thx

Great job. I am very interested in knowing how you created this!

Hi Todd
Thanks for your message. I use solidworks to draw my models.

It's WONDERFUL. I love it so much. Perfectly balanced, great weight, flies high, and glides nicely. Thank you!

I printed this (PLA with 100% density at 2.5mm layer height) on my printrbot simple metal. I had to rotate both pieces to avoid using supports, but they both printed fine. This thing is amazing. It launched SOOOOO high. I was also surprised how well it held up on the crash landings. It is currently on my roof I think (my boys ran all around the house and can't find it, pretty sure it's up there or in a gutter). I'm starting to print another one. Wish I could take it out to the middle of the field (tethered by the dremel power cord and extension cord).

I saw a few other toys like this on thingiverse, and the really popular one that is made by make seems nice, but this one uses a little interlocking piece so that it locks the fan on the dremel and then takes off when you shut it off. Works great. The other one just pressure fits and you have to hit the bottom of the dremel to get it to launch.

Thanks for a great design!

Agreed - this flew well. The pressure-fit versions are too unpredictable. WARNING - always wear protective goggles when spinning this. I don't know what PLA shards flying out at 100+ mph feels like, and don't want to know ...

Just put a video of printing and flying this on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hh9QUTQvfsk). Super fun.

Hi Nice Print ! Thanks for your comment ;)
