Carletto73 | Flying wing RC fully printed 80cm wingspan 1
Hallo,
In this document you can find the instruction to assembly the flying wing published on Thingiverse
by me. The model flew very well so you can print and fun in very short time. The design was
optimized to have less part as possible (just 9 parts to printer) and to be ready to fly in few minutes.
This instruction is related to version 05 that is considered stable and working properly. Future
versions must be considered just improvement and this instruction could be taking as reference as
well. The RC model works very well and is one of the first pure flying wing RC printed present
today on the web (summer 2016). In the Thingiverse page you can find the video that show some
phases of the fly
Please reproduce and fly, and at the end let me know your comments and suggestions. Will be
very appreciated remix (with modification and changes) and make on Thingiverse page with
pictures with your models.
Enjoy the fly

Ciao,
In questo documento sono riportare le istruzioni per lassemblaggio del tuttala pubblicato da me su
Thingiverse. Il modello vola molto bene quindi lo potete stampare e fare volare in poco tempo. Il
progetto stato ottimizzato per avere meno pezzi possibile (sono 9 pezzi da stampare) e per
essere pronti a volare in soli pochi minuti. Le istruzioni si riferiscono alla revisione 5 che al
momento stabile e funzionante. Future eventuali versioni dovranno essere considerate solo dei
miglioramenti ma questa istruzioni rimarranno valide. Laeromodello funziona molto bene ed uno
dei primi modelli tuttala stampati alla 3D oggi presenti sul web (estate 2016). Su Thingiverse
potrete vedere alcuni video che mostrano alcune fasi di volo.
Vi invito a stamparlo ed a volarci e aspetto i vostri commenti e suggerimenti. Saranno molto
apprezzati remix (con modifiche) e make sulla pagina di Thingiverse con le foto dei vostri
modelli.
Buon volo
Carletto73

Printing of the parts
To maintain a low weight and allow to print with a common 3D home printer (like Prusa) are
needed few tricks.
Dimension of the parts
The flying wing was designed to fit into a standard 3D home printer with working area of
200x200x200mm. Due some safety margin that sometime took the slicer, could be that the cube
area dedicated to a part is bigger than the real needed. In this case, when you load a STL file into
your slicer, you can have a warning massage that advise you that the part is over the limit of your
printer, and ask you if you want continue. If happen you can check that, instead, the real part is into
the limit than you can answer YES. My printer is a standard Prusa I3 homemade ad I warranty that
all parts are printable by every printer with a working area of 200x200x200.
Positioning of the part in the bed of the printer
The height of every part is less of 200mm instead the horizontal dimensions could be bigger than
200mm, for this reason you have to place the piece into the bed with 45% angulation. Other, the
slicer put the infill grid in a fixed point of the bed not depending by the design of the part to printer.
When you slice a part, before print, you have to check where the infill grid is located into per part
and adjust the part position into the bed of the printer in order to have the most efficient positioning
of the infill. Below you can check where I suggest to put the infill in every part.
Shell/perimeter
The parts have to be less weight as possible. For this reason, many parts are made with only one
perimeter of 0,32mm thickness. My printer has a nozzle of 0,35mm diameter. It is important that the
parts are built with only one perimeter. I saw that the slicer is able to build perimeter more or less
bigger than the nozzle diameter.
Left/right part
In order to have a symmetrical assembly the STL available are only for left wing. To print the right
parts, you have to use the mirror function in your slicer

Assembly
In my case, sometime there are some error during the
printing (just 4 or 5 holes). Seams that sometime the printer
is not able to keep the thickness of the shell 0,32mm. I dont
know what depend, maybe my slicer is very old. If you know
please let me know. This kind of error dont is a road block,
sometime is only a aesthetical issue, anyway is better to fix
it.

I correct this hole with CA glue and tape (normal for office).
For this activity I prefer the cyanoacrylate fluid. Below you can find what I use and a sample of fix

Aileron fixing
The ailerons are fixed with steel rods and are blocked in between the two part of every semi-wing.
Before to glue the two pieces of wing, and fix in the meantime the aileron put the steel rod and
check the aileron movement.

Glue
The best results Ive achieved using cyanoacrylate medium. Maybe the best cold the episodic by-
component but, for my experience I noted that in case of very strong crash the parts soldered with
cyanoacrylate was dismount and, directly in the field is possible to fix again the parts with new CA
glue.

Motor fixing
Use the dedicated holes to pass the motor wiring
into the canopy. If you use the connector of 2mm
diameter you can install also before because the
hole is able to accept.

Fix the motor with only two screws. The pass of the
screws is 16mm, according with BE1816 motor.

Use a 5030 propeller. With 3S battery an BE1806-


2300kv, the consumption is below 7A.

Servo/aileron connection
The servos are
integrated into the wings.
For this is needed a 3,7g
servo. A 9g mm doesnt
fit into the dedicated
space. I buy this kind of
servo on Aliexpress.

Positioner the servo in


the central of the run and fix the arm. The cables go directly to the vane into the wing. Before fix the
servo pass the cable.

Use bi-adhesive tape to fix the


servo to the wing. Be sure that
the cable arrive to the receiver.
In the filed Ive put also a tape
over the servo to fix better it.

Use a steel rod bar to connect the ailerons to servos.

Carletto73 | Flying wing RC fully printed 80cm wingspan 9


Wiring
ESC
Fix the ESC with bi-adhesive tape. On the
field for two times my ESC, was go in failure
on fly, due the high temperature rich. My ESC
was 12A but the motor consumption was only
less then 7. To me this is because my ESC is
born for drone and the mosfets are not
equipped by a heat sink because the air of
the propeller go directly to the ESC. Instead
in the flying wing is closed in a vane. For this
reason, I will change the Esc with a model
equipped by heatsink

RX module
Also the RX module must be fixed with bi-
adhesive tape

Battery
Use Velcro to fix the battery. Be sure
that is possible move upward or
downward the battery to have the CG in
the right person (indicated by two semi-
ball under the wings)

Carletto73 | Flying wing RC fully printed 80cm wingspan 10


Weight
Be sure to use very light
components. In my sample
the total weight in fly is 358g
(12,63 oz). I noted that motor
is able to take off very well, in
my mind it is possible to
manage model with more
heavy. Ive also check without
motor and the model seam
equilibrated. The weight of
only plastic part is 256g

Center of gravity
Under the wings there is highlighted the correct position of the
CG
