It seems to me you would want some sort of joint between all of those pieces other than a straight butt joint. Or at least a carbon tube or rod. There are a lot of forces put on an air frame in flight, I wouldn't trust a bottle of CA alone to hold my rig together

3D printing has come a long way... but still has a ways to go. I agree, wings are subjected to alot of stress, especially at the joint to the fuselage. Maybe he does plan on using some sort of primary member like a CF tube.

There are new printers using CF composite though. but still, the parts are glued together and they often fail at those points.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Finger joints, one of the strongest joints when joining wood. I don't see why it would be any different in plastic when the chemical reaction of CA actually melts-mends them together.

Only downside I see is the weight by comparison to other materials but becomes moot given the raw power of electrics.

3D printing...a great progress in the grand scheme of things.

ever heard a wing blow up, my friend had one blow up on a 96"er, it sounded like a shot gun going off

No, I still don't know what that is, please elaborate.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Finger joints
I agree the finger joints are strong, but I only seen them used in one spot on each side of the wing out of how many joints?

No clue but hopefully where mainly needed. I would'nt be doing snap rolls with such scale model anyways.

Both the wing and fuselage features extensive hitech 3d structural reinforcement, making the model very rigid, yet maintaining lightweight airframe and exact airfoil, even it is made only from plastic.

There's a video of it flying....fwiw.

really, the wing just blew apart, as I remember it was a Sukhoi, the guy read if the plane did a certain maneuver the wing would just blow apart, well he really didn't care much for the way the plane flew, and he had it some 4 years and was ready for a new plane so he did the maneuver and sure enough the wing just blew apart pow

GyroFreak,
I am sure this is the plane, the covering is correct

GyroFreak, ,
if you click on my link and scroll down to Post #83/page 4, you will see that the plane did have a problem with it's wing blowing apart

Thanks Gear, I was guessing the wing folded but the airstream caused it to tear apart and make a loud pop. Thanks for the info.

I have printed and flown the cesna its a sound design and flew well. Then I put a cheapo orange stabilising receiver on it and smeared it on the field.
