I've almost finished the right one too, just needs some triagular support beams and the rear underside covering. In hindsight, I should have made 4mm covers instead of 2mm. I...

That would be 2.4mm balsa covering in the original design. Here, I printed out coverings that were largely empty space since ABS is much stronger than balsa is. To borrow an image from the...

I wasn't planning on moving the EDF units. I saw a video on YouTube where someone made a movable EDF jet, and they said the rotation was screwing it up. As you say, it's better to control the...

Oh. No, I swapped the EDFs. I just wanted to make sure my soldering on the bullet connectors worked. What I meant was, I haven't tested the second ESC yet. I think.

Huh. Well, if I try it and it doesn't work, I can always rebuild the underside. Or fly it off ground only. Or fit a 'step' along the sides perhaps, and see how that works.
