What do I need to fly these 3D Printed Aircraft
This entry level 3D printer has won countless awards. It has a large enough print bed size and is easily capable enough fro printing 3D printed planes and the models.
It is common to find that the print beds are not perfectly flat but this is easily sorted using post-it notes under the magnetic base.
The Creality Ender 5 Pro is the printer in use here at Rc3Dprint Towers. The cube design makes it really sturdy, it has a HUGE print area, printing up top 300mm in Z (that's 33% bigger than a Prusa).
However it is more expensive than the Ender 3.
This starter kit will do just that's, get you started. It contains a single 2217 motor, 2 x 1060 props and a 40amp ESC, aswell as 2 x servos.
You will need a few more servos for our models and it goes without saying the twin engine models need 2 motors!
At this price I would buy 2 of these.
Since buying this base for our Ender 5 We have never had any problems with bed adhesion. It is magic, the prints stick firmly when the bed is heating then drop off as soon as it is cool.
Frequently Asked Questions
So, how does it work?
Purchase a plane from our store and you will receive a download containing instructions and .STL files (3D model files). Put the models into a slicer program, such as Cura or Slic3er, there print on your own desktop 3D printer.
Follow the assembly instructions once all the parts are printed and... voila!
Do I get everything I need to fly the plane?
No. You will need your own RC gear such as radio, motors batteries and servos. See the list above.
Do I need to have a 3d printer?
Yes. You need to have access to a 3D printer. After ordering we will only send you digital files.
All of our designs are made so that you can print them on a 3D printer with 220cm x 220cm x250cm bed printing area.
For good entry level printers look at the list above.
What if I crash the plane? Are they easy to fly?
Crashing happens. Recover what parts you can, then print the parts you need again!
Some of our planes are easy, some are for advanced flyers. In the description of the plane we are sure to tell you what skill level it is aimed at.
