RC AIRCRAFT BUILDS 3D Printing RC Planes Predators 3D printed Mini Cub Reply To: Predators 3D printed Mini Cub


I took Andrew’s advice & visited McCanns Hobby Shop today and got some medium CA & kicker (once you factor in postage cost it’s actually cheaper to buy local – I’ll know next time).

Finished assembling the fuselage & also the ailerons so while waiting for the wings to print I set up a Bixler 2 motor (down-propped from 8 x 6 to 8 x 4). It has a slightly higher KV than the specified motor but is slightly smaller and lighter as well. With the smaller prop WOT is only 14 amps so I fitted a 25A ESC (smallest one I had) and that is now all good to go.

Should have the wings completed tomorrow, then to paint it all & install the servo’s etc.

Starting to look like a plane now !!
