Default T-2 Buckeye 3D printer EDF 1st flight

Here is the 1st flight of my T-2 Buckeye. Used Dirty Dee's STL files to print it. 61" wing span, 15.3 lbs. Uses a Hacker Streamfan 90 mm EDF on 12S, 5300ma HVLiPo SMC batteries.. Flies great, I suck at landing.though.

Don’t feel bad about that landing Bob, the real one was a pita to land also.

Very nice! I wonder how the printed material (PLA-LW?) would handle the stress in those long main landing gear legs.

There is one printed in LW-PLA. I think there is a video over on 3D printed plane section on the other site. :-)
