You should be able to align and stack STL’s in MeshMixer by AutoDesK. It’s free and worth a try, it does many other functions that you can use on your STL’s
Found here- http://www.meshmixer.com/
There is a Factory file for S3D but no STL’s listed. Here is the left cover, just mirror it for the right.
Your “fortune cookies” are to be inserted just inboard of the gear base plate mount, it covers a void that could not be printed.

They have option 2 in stock, these are the ones listed in the back of the manual. They are less than half the price of the all metal ones and they will get you into the air:)
1x Servoless Retract with Metal Trunion 44mm x 41mm Mount
1x Alloy Oleo Strut 115mm Straight Mains for 40~60 Class
If you are opening a factory file and your print bed is offset, there is a checkbox that you need to disable. Doing so will allow you to use your offsets and bed size from the Options menu.
Factory files are native Simplify3D files. They need to be opened, everything is setup and ready to print. Most of the time the only setting you need to change would be the extrusion temp.
If you want to import something, you need to start with the supplied STL files.
Try this link, it works for me.
If you are using the suggested HK steerable nose gear, you will need this adapter to connect your lower gear and wheel to the shaft.

I use 300lb/164kg test Stainless Steel fishing leader, comes rolled up in a package in 30’/9.2m lengths, Un-coil and it slides right in. The K&S piano wire also works well and it comes in 1 meter lengths.
Have you weighed your parts, they look to be over extruded. If that is the case the inner alignment tabs will not have the proper clearance.
Not sure if this is going to work, I checked the Tarot 4006/620kv spacing and it does not look like it will fit the stock Spitfire motor mount. You could possibly do it with an adapter plate but that will be a challenge.
First off you should be able to run 3.1.1 and 4.0 at the same time. I did this to compare your images. If you look in your Program Files Directory you will see your older installs. Just drag the 3.1.1 Simplify3D.exe to the desktop and make another shortcut.
I did a screen grab from ver 3.1.1 and it looks identical to your 4.0 “Perimeters Only” setting. This is the stock file that was supplied from 3DLabPrint, have you tried printing it yet?
When we were building 3D foamie airplanes we used hot melt glue on a servo wrapped in masking tape. It allows you to cut the tape to remove the servo and if you decide to use CA it keeps the glue out of the servo. When wrapping the servo make sure that you get the tape around the bottom of the servo, this helps hold the tape better. I’ve used this technique and hot glue on the 3DLabPrint servo pockets and it works great.
