Project description

A printable version of what is probably the best-known fighter of the 5th generation is ready for you to replicate here and has been designed in cooperation with Joel Vlashof (VJM Aviation) on the basis of many years of VTOL experience in RC model construction.

A rotatable rear nozzle, which also includes an ingeniously designed thrust vector control, makes this EDF jet suitable for aerobatics and VTOL and is very easy to fly. In addition, there are pivoting slats that cause an elegant slow flight.

General printing recommendations

Printer size22 cm x 22 cm x 22 cm (e. g. Bambu Lab X1C)
EnclosureNot necessary
SlicerBambu Studio (latest version)
Filaments usedLW-PLA (e. g. colorFabb), PLA, PA-CF low-warp Nylon (e. g. colorFabb)
Filament diameter1,75 mm
Nozzle diameter0,40 mm

Special printing recommendations for all LW-PLA components

Most components of the jets sold here are designed and optimized for a stable lightweight construction with LW-PLA. Since this foaming filament requires special parameters for successful printing, which vary from printer to printer and also from slicer to slicer, you should make your own printing tests in advance. You can find many tutorials and tips on the Internet and on YouTube.

The basic default settings we use with a Bambu Lab X1C and Bambu Studio as slicers are listed here.
