I would love to know if you finally achieve a working r/c model :-)

Its too heavy to be an RC model. There are some existing frames that work though, I have a P51. Be prepared to spend 20 bucks on them though. Theres also a Spitfire and other war birds, and some easy flyers. Check www.3dlabprint.com thats where i got mine.

this model flies with following printer settings;
cura & slic3r
vase settings in cura for body parts,
single wall perimerter & 4% infill in slic3r for the wings.
Save as .gcode & u'll have your printable flying model,
hollow carbon rods trough, and start drilling the steering rod holes. make balsa servomounts fyormicro servo, cause printed plastic would be too heavy for this.
i made a 42cm wingspan, & a 64cm wingspan spit fly. the 42cm with Microflight.com radio gear, a LiFe 18650 accu, a 1600kv micro drone brushless 6a motor & esc, &parkzone microservo's., some straws and carbon rods. i do suggest an 3 axial gyro, cause such small models are a... ehm. difficult too fly. the 64cm flew like a dream until it met that one lonely tree on the field.
so, a 20x20x18cm printer can print a flying spit, but it rquires some years of building flying models & capacity to weight ratio accu knowledge.
a bigger printer, like a 30x30x30 cm, can print a stable flying spit.
A Mig-15 project, well , that failed. electric ducted fans are just... pathetic. its makes a pretty remote controlled car tho.
