  • Hey Y'all, Fuselage_3 completed and had some thin spots of the 'thin' wall construction. Chatted with 3Dlabs forum guys and it is not unusual so I will 'press on'. The structure of this is quite fascinating to me, though I am easily entertained. I have looked on MotionRC's site and I am thinking the F-4 90mm setup is the way to go here, but are all 90mm EDFs 8s? The recommended setup is 90mm EDF and a 1750Kv motor with a 100+ amp ESC. I'm in the learning curve just hiding behind the door. Any help here would be appreciated. Best, LB

    • Wow, that looks good, what do you use for adhering the media to the bed?

        RBTX, Thanks, I started out using the glue stick that came with the Prusa kit, which was just like Elmers Xtreme as far as I can tell. There is another better product called 3D Gloop www.3dgloop.com which works even on glass but leaves a residue. I have used both and these work. However, I have the Powder-Coated TXT Spring Steel heat bed sheet which once it is broken in no longer requires an adhesive. I clean it with acetone before each print and I scuffed it up before I printed my 2nd print as I had a problem with adhesion at first. Pic is Fuselage_4 the largest piece so far. Best, LB

                  Cool brother thanks! Im worki on the first print now. It looks really rough, however i am using the cheapo filament that came with the printer, not the stuff i ordered, i just figured i would use the cheap stuff while i learn how to work it. Before i dive in to some more fun and exciting projects

                  • I use AquaNet hairspray to adhere parts to the bed.

                      • It's cheap and it works better for me than anything else I have tried.

                                  • Yes! Im printing up the actual platform now. And yes it is HO scale

                                    • RBTX, I like HO Scale, just difficult to RC gear in the airplanes. Fuselage_6 added. Tammes said, "It's getting so big." Cracked me up as my mind went immediately to the gutter. I've said too much and she is just a champ for putting with me. Anyway, Best to all this Sunday AM and "Go Chiefs", LB

                                        • Very cool!!!! My Freewing 80mm is still in the box. Now we have new powerplant options which should make it sweeter!!!! But the 3D printing intrigues me. I was an instructor for SHARP electronics and taught copiers, printers and fax machines.... Color copiers were complex, but the 3D thing is something I will add to my skillset very soon!!! Looking really cool LB!!! I like it when the girls comment on size too.... (of the planes and storage spaces)
