I just printed, the gear is reversed

Redesigned propeller has the indents that mate with the gear reversed and it will not turn.

I have made this and I had real issues with the rotor not printing. The new rotor looks great.
I would like to make it with more handle on the casing.
Any chance of a step file?

i see in your , even in your printout, a blade has lost some consistency -- i smoothed some elmer's glue over it to 'fillin the cracks' ... -- and add strength , also the box top seemed a bit thin and got some of the same ..

the design looks very good and i have printed some incomplete sets ... I'll have to get the m4 up there for the gear pinion ... PLA is def not a good choice for the whole set -- if u can, Nylon for the rip cord / and or gear ... -- pla just laughs at me as it is not forgiving when gears dont absolutel match up - ...

Would it be possible to have a version of the rack that works on a 5"x5" printer?

well i don't know if it would be enough but you can try! Do you want me to design it?

i just posted a minirack, print it in diagonal and let me know if it works!

I made one, printed the puller out of Ninja-Flex so it will not break. Darn thing flew Higher than my 2-story house. Now I have to beef it up I'm getting so much torque it breaks up after about 10-flights. Would you have .stl or parasolids to post?
Nice toy for the kids.

Thank you! I'd appreciate if you could post the toy as a remix after you modify it. I don't know if I'm getting this right, what is breaking because of torque? Anyway I can give you the .3dm file, the .stl is the one you already have :)

I printed this today but the "pull through stick"kept getting stuck. Did you do anything special to get it to work well?

I think you need to "push and pull" a bit more to let it loose, let me know how it goes :)

Your center of the propeller starts printing on the third layer. Most will not be able to print this

you should use support, i guess

This looks so cool. I'm going to print a few of these for Xmas! :)

Ahaha thank you so much, enjoy!
