What filament have you used Itisme and why did you make that particular choice?

I see you used PLA for Kaydet, doe sthat apply to the others too? I'm very interested in trying appreciate the pros & cons of various materials availble.

I just used pla from hobbyking on all the planes i have printed. I just received my mk3 prusa and made the spitfire that’s included with the drivers package, i made a couple of changes to some gcodes to allow printing of invasion stripes, I will put some photos up shortly

Flies quite well, i used the eco setup recommended in the instructions, i used a 4s 2200 hobbyking battery which balanced it perfectly on the cog points printed on the wings

So just to be clear, the invasion stripes are different coloured PLA?

Looks brilliant.

Yes the stripes are printed, there is paint on the fuselage fillets where the first white stripe meets the fuselage
