The Jetwing Parts List.

Updated: Aug 26, 2023

What you will need to complete this model:


Some of these links are Amazon affiliate links. These are always of products we used and design the model around. There is no increase of price to you for using these links but the small commission we earn helps to offset the cost of hosting this site and developing models. It is greatly appreciated.



Radio: This model requires at minimum a 3 channel radio system that can digitally mix the elevon servos for operation as elevators and ailerons. You will need throttle and 2 servo capability. I have come to prefer multi protocol radios and this one is the best in my opinion.











Receiver: A micro receiver compatible with your radio system. The prototype used this:











Filament: The Jetwing has been completely redesigned specifically for lightweight PLA filament. My current favorite is Colorfabb lightweight PLA, but I'm sure others will work. What will not work is anything else as you will have a tail heavy model. Wings are very CG sensitive. This entire model can be printed with less than a single roll.


Adhesive: Thin CA glue. This has become my go to brand. Be careful it is very thin, but it sets very quickly. It's good for weeping in between the seam of 3D printed parts and getting a good bond. They also make a medium viscosity that I also use, but far less often.


Also I've used Gorrilla glue with success bonding the clear canopy to the canopy frame. CA will also work but tends to cause a haze on the canopy.


Tape: A very strong and clean gapless hinge for the elevons is created by using a thin strip of clear mailing tape and CA bonded. Additionally you may wish to use this or simple masking tape for temporary parts alignment prior to bonding 3D printed parts together. https://amzn.to/3NV3frF


Motor: I designed this plane around the Powerfun 50mm EDF ducted fan. You are going to want the 4S version. Amazon Link: https://amzn.to/3QyGCuN











Batteries: I specifically designed this model to run on the Ovonic 2s lipo 2200 MAH. batteries. Amazon Link: https://amzn.to/43YxFxX












ESC: Check with the motor spec's you chose but we used a 40 amp brushless ESC with BEC.

Battery: This plane requires two 2S LIPO batteries in the wings and wired in series to create the 4S required. Link to what we used: Battery box dimensions are 36mm x 107mm x 21mm.


Servos: Two SG90 micro servos are required. Note that these are included in the optional kit.












Linkages: the elevons will require one ball linkage each due to the angle to the servo.











Screws: You will need a total of ten servo mounting screws. two are required for each servo, two for each battery bay lid, and two for the canopy.


FPV:

Optionally you may chose to include an FPV camera. I designed the clear vacuum molded canopy to fit over the Runcam2 series of cameras. There is also a mount in the STL files for this camera. I Chose this 4K version shown below:












There does happen to be a slightly less expensive version that is not 4K:











Optional Kit: We are providing a kit that includes a clear vacuum molded canopy, laser cut spar sections, and a pre soldered wiring harness with deans connectors. and two sg90 servos. See Link:

Note that the links provided are affiliate links to the exact products we have used. This does not increase the price to you in any way. However, we will receive a small commission from any sale. Thee small commissions help to defray our cost in designing these models, especially the models we offer for free.
