Consolidated PBY Catalina

Consolidated PBY Catalina

Semi scale 3D printed model of Consolidated PBY Catalina with about 1,7m wingspan made by Martin Klöpfer.  Features retractable floats for better in air behavior, same as the original. The flying boat is in civilian version, so there’s no gun turret on the nose and structures to the rear gunning blisters since they are easier to be added than removed when unwanted.

You will get:

  • STLs
  • Factory files for Simplify3D
  • Basic GCodes

You will need:

  • Radio System of your choice, any 5 channel will do (with servos on Y-cable), 7 channels or more recommended.
  • 2x 3530/1100 KV motor
  • 2x 30A ESC
  • 5000 mAh 3S 30C Li-Po battery
  • 4x HXT900 class 9g servos
  • 2x servoless retracts
  • Some construction material

Requirements

All parts were printed on a Prusa MK3, sometimes using the full base size of 250 x 210 mm. Minimum print volume required is 200 x 200 x 180, but you’ll have to modify the S3D-factory files (a little less on the base might work as well). Recommended nozzle is 0,4mm
