Specification

First flown in September 1986 the Piaggio Avanti is a twin pushers Italian executive transport aircraft. After selling more than 100 examples Piaggio, developed an unmanned military version.

The aircraft feature a unique 3 lifting surface design, where all three surfaces provide lift, unlike a conventional plane where the horizontal stabiliser provides down force. The designers also estimate that 30% of the lift required is generated by the shape of the fuselage, allowing the aircraft to have smaller wings.

The Avanti 2 can now be printed in LW-PLA.

Our 3D printed version of this aircraft requires a print bed size of 200mm/200mm/200mm. 

The Avanti is still in its experimental stage, I HAVE NOT FLOWN IT YET. I have taken all the feedback from the community of builders and testers from the first Avanti and am please to offer the Avanti 2.

Changes include a new simpler and more scale empennage. The elevator control surfaces have moved to the canard for better flight stability. A magnetic hatch for battery compartment access has been added as well as a steerable nose gear.

The wing has larger surface area.

Help the project along by posting your builds and maiden flights on instagram with the tag #rc3dprint. You can also email rc3dprint@icloud.com with your suggestions to improve the design.
