    Hi Elbee,

    if possible, all that is in the green/black picture, please. Thank you very much - I really do appreciate that.

      Q, No problem. I will send you a PM with those STL files tomorrow, Wednesday. Best, LB

      • Hey All, Alpha is broadcasting 'LIVE" on twitch TV app. We need at least 50 people to subscribe (It's Free) and tune in on Tuesday evenings at 9:00pm Eastern Time to watch Alpha design using AutoDesk Fusion 360. Even if you are not into CAD or 3DP it's worth the watch. Very informative, the occasional Easter Egg, and it's great to see other Squawkers there. Tune in and subscribe. Just do it!! Best, LB

          • After much research regarding filament type, I came to the conclusion that PETG was the filament that seemed to check all the boxes of characteristics I was looking for. I have been printing with PETG (specifically Prusament) for several weeks and it has been printing exceptional especially on a textured bed. The parts are resilient and the quality is great.

            Now, all these previous parts I have made have not been used outdoors, but the parts I will be making soon will be used outdoors. One of the characteristics of PETG that appealed to me was its higher resilience to temperature (higher than PLA for example, yet lower than ABS and PC) and its rather non brittle nature and relative ease of printing without an enclosure and a lot of fumes. Hopefully PETG printed parts will be reliable outdoors on RC aircraft, which is primarily what I'd like to use it for.

            For those of you who have used PETG, among many other filament types, how well have your 3D printed parts held up outdoors in the sun (even in summer temps.) in comparison to other filaments? This could be any detail parts for RC aircraft, such as tailcones, antennas, wheel covers, etc.

            • I have a printed wing part in my truck been in there for a year or so now. Even in 110° weather its held up inside the truck. Not even a hint of deformation.

                Fantastic, thanks Rifleman.

                • As long as it's kept out of direct sunlight, it should be fine. I store all my planes in the garage, and a lot of them have PLA parts. No issues, and it can get up to 130° in there on really hot days. Thankfully I have a mini fridge for my lipos.

                  • Ha-ha, thanks Pat. I'll definitely keep them out of sun as much as possible.

                    What I would really love is if all my RC stuff was stored in an air conditioned room. Hopefully in the future.

                    • Hey,

                      does anybody know a STL file for a typical russian jet pilot bust with the special helmet? I dont like the always same pilot in most eastern and western jet aircrafts of freewing. Thanks
