Thread: Show Us Your 3D Prints

Well worth doing.


A good weight saving there.

Nose cone was printed with PLA. Weight 8.4g. Hollow no infill. I think I may try one in vase mode in Cura at some point. The foam nose was removed from the Radjet and weighed in at 3.5g.


The above nose will one day go onto my BNIB Radjet.


I do like to keep a spare of some d

Thread: FrSky Major Update for most TX and RX

Thanks for the heads up Kev.

First of all, if I don't do this then my gear isn't going to stop working.

Second, it's very nice of them to tell us it needs doing, but have they instructed us how? Are files available for non FrOS users or do we have to go through the process of converting back to FrOS and then back to our favourite system again?

The cynic in me wonders whether this is an update just to stop cloned receivers working?

Edited By Chris Bott - Moderator on 16/01/2020 18:51:23

Agreed. At the moment I am going to do nothing!!!

Wait and see is my moto.

FrSky Major Update for most TX and RX

With 3 TX and over 50 Rx this is not going to be a five minute job.

Check the December 2019 magazine. David Ashby mentioned it in his column.


It is in the 2019 Special issue page 116.


I used the very same method to make a canopy for my Mini Jazz. See here.

Yep - works for me Kev - whether I'm logged-in to my Google account or not. I deliberately checked on a browser (Edge) that I never log-in to Google with (because I rarely use Edge!)

Thank you John.

Exactly what I wanted to hear.

Thread: Lightweight foam pilots, any suppliers?
07/01/2020 21:15:09

If you know any one with a 3D printer any pilot bust can be scaled up or down to suit.

They weigh next to nothing. You do need a steady hand when painting the smaller ones.

Announced in this thread Martin.


Any of the Mini Jets is allowed.



I also have a spare 64mm fan, but think I would prefer the TSR2.

Thread: TX stick/gimbal direction guide plate?
27/11/2019 07:04:03

If you know someone with a 3D printer these are a possible.



They may need a little re sizing to suit.


Thread: Mini Blitz
22/11/2019 20:27:06

As per the original plan.

8 1/4" from the trailing edge.

22/11/2019 19:56:07


Had to wait for a 2oz tank to complete the build.

All being well, I shall attempt a maiden this weekend.


Wish me luck!!

Cling film for larger models or grease proof paper for smaller models.

And SLEC do a sheet of plastic plan protector.

Hi Alan.

No I did not get the plans.

I have no skills that would allow me to build one.blush

Thread: Mini Blitz

Sat at the bench waiting for the fog to clear before going flying, and this happened!!!

So that was a productive day. I feel it is going to need a big chunk of church roof in the back though.😢

Really should have gone flying.
