    I wanted to post my build, and some possible things that might save some people headaches when building and running this. This is my first build using a 3d printer but I have built and flown many r/c airplanes. I am very much still learning all the tweaks needed to get a good 3d print though.

    Will post some initial pictures now and more info and pictures/videos later if I ever get this thing running out on the river.

    One more time trying to add pictures, the hull is regular PLA but I started using PLA+ for the gears and rotors. I coated it with XTC 3d then krylon fusion. Still need to touch it up and do clear coat but came out decent for my first build. Just hope I can get it out on the river soon to see how it does. Will post video once I get it going.

    I used marine grease on the shaft and around the bearings to seal it. Also used 20mm screws on the 3 reversing gears instead of 16mm on this last build to decrease the chance of breaking the shaft that holds the 3 gears since that happened in a test run then it sheared the shaft hex.

    Just maidened it today and it was successful with the updated parts that were provided in the Q&A thread. The collet that connects the motor to the driveshaft driver came loose though but that should be fine after tightening better. See pictures and video below.
