Product Description

Future of flying – Print your own plane

Stearman (Boeing) PT-17 Kaydet – the first scale 3d printed biplane available, now with hybrid LW-PLA option to reduce all-up-weight!

Taking advantage of LW-PLA tail and wings you will get a scale speed flying, stable RC model aircraft for fun and relaxed flying, suitable for slightly experienced pilots. Hybrid LWStearman PT-17 Kaydet has low stall speed and therefore is easy to land.

Fully printable model airplane with files prepared for your 3Dprinter. flight characteristics, comparable or even superior to classic build model airplane.

Simply download and print the whole plane or spare parts anytime you need just for a cost of filament only about $20 per 1kg

Extensive hi-tech 3d structural reinforcement making the model very rigid while maintaining a lightweight airframe and exact airfoil even it’s just a plastic. This
perfect and precise 3d structure is only possible thanks to additive 3dprinting technology. So welcome to the 21st century of model flying and be the pioneer at your airfield

Easy to assemble, you don’t need any extra tool or hardware, just glue printed parts together and make pushrods for control. The rest of the assembly is very easy. Simply mount the brushless motor, ESC, servos and set the radio system. Don’t be afraid, detailed step by step PDF/VIDEO is included.
