    Its what's called a black wing ebw160, I bought the plans and files for this one to rejuvenate my n9mb project. It is weird to fly but suprising smooth too.

    rifleman_btx, Amazing looking airframe and forgive my ignorance but it's like something out of Germany's WW2 R&D section or an Indiana Jones movie. No vertical. Outstanding. Best, LB

    DM, Hey how's your cockpit build going? Pictures? I will post STL Files of the vents, etc when I get back to the fuselage and "correct the sizing". Right now I'm working on painting and lighting the Vertical Stabilizers. I received my graphics from Callie and those are great, so lots to do. Best, LB

    Just need to run some airfoil analysis to decide on a wing airfoil before I dive in. Thinking between the Clark YM-15, NACA 2415, and NACA 3712 (close to scale)

    BB, Great to 'read' your voice, been awhile. You know my choice, Prusa i3 Mk3S, but it's the only one I have ever owned and was my choice after much research at the time. Anyway, I just converted my Mk3 to the Mk3S with a $20 upgrade Hot-end kit from Prusa and changed to a .3mm nozzle (smaller as .4 is the standard). I had to reset the 'first layer height' is all. Amazing detail now, though print times are longer and worth it. I bought the kit to save some bucks and it was an easy build and calibrate. I don't know your demands for quality, but I'm now looking for a second printer which is an SLA resin printer. These produce high detail and the Elegoo looks like the ticket for now. Hope I've helped. Best, LB
