    Mine did that too. I downloaded the factory files into S3D and recreated the GCODE

    I am using Fusion 360…but it is not easy for beginners but getting there. So far I have managed to design and print ailerons to modify a Lanyu ASW28. Wingtips, rudder and elevators will be next. It has taken about a month to get this far. Good luck!

    Here is the first photo of the wing layout with ailerons and flaps. I need a better camera and back ground but this will do. Tail photo to come next

    Hi All,
    I have just about all the parts printed and can take a few photos with the parts layed out so people can get a feel for how it goes together.
    Cheers

    Hi Markus…sorry here is an image to help describe washout. It helps reduce tip stall and wing drop during a stall.

    Hi Markus, Good to hear about the lighter wing. I did notice in your Maiden flight video that in the stall,the Kobuz does moderately drop a wing. Is there any washout ( reduced angle of attack at the wing tips) in the current design or future design. Just curious for when I start my own designs.
    Regards
    Tom

    Hi Markus…which parts are printed in black. Its a bit hard to tell from the drawings. Red bits are a bit more obvious.

    Hi Markus,
    I am hunting down the parts for the Kobus and I noticed that you specified 1250 mm of 16×14 carbon tube. Does this need to be in one length and where is it used?
    Thanks
    Tom

    I just finish LW1 and it weighed in at 188 grams and took 14h 1 min on a Prusa Mk3 with the standard Gcode. Now onto RW1. oops better change the spool.

    This would be a worthy scale aircraft to model

    I just added a new piece of PFTE tube at about 51.9 mm long and now nearly finished my first print of the Spitfire MkIX tyre. I put in the 45 degree bevel into the hot end. I also cut 45 degree into to top part of the tube on one side only, the side facing the extruder gear. Seems ok. I am using the 3dlaprint standard Gcode.
