    Project I working on. A buddy have me his crashed 1M DLG, wings and tail parts where all fine with no damage just the fuse broken a couple of times. I drawing a new pod for it to make it a powered glider. Once it is done I will 3D print it and glue the good portion of the tail boom on it.

    I printed a test part of just the wing saddle to see how it fits the wing. It’s not perfect but it’s close. Now to add more features to it and print the final product.

    After skipping my poor 84” TBM to the water hard, I have decided to scrap the floats and rebuild the fuselage. I’m getting there…

    Whipped up a tire installer for the 3.5” spot on wheel. Just uploaded it to thingiverse as well.

    More work done on the new pod for the DLG. I can say it was a ton of trying to figure out how to draw the wing saddle with trying to incorporate the airfoil of the wing, the wing incidence, and the dihedral. Once I know this fits I will be incorporating servo mounts as well. Figure since the entire pod is being printed that I can just print it all at once.

    Looks really good buddy... wait.. this isn't a DLG anymore! You've entered the F5K territory ;)
    How are you going to secure the canopy/hatch? Dont forget a little NACA duct to cool the ESC :too-cool:

    Yes that’s the plan for it to be an electric glider. I have found at least currently I’m not good enough with a 1M to keep it in the air long (they just blow through lift so quick). Yes thinking of doing NACA ducts on it just gotta figure out how to draw them.

    here are some pictures of the printed test part. Needless to say I’m very happy with the fit. Also check out the size difference between a KST X08 and X06.
