In The Mini Extra 300
I've been having some trouble sourcing the original Diatone Mamba motors for this plane so I gave this a shot and so far I'm pretty happy with it. This is from raceday quads. EMAX ECO 1407 3300Kv Micro Motor From the photo you can see old sparky sitting in the foreground. The dimensions of this new motor are almost identical. I didn't have to shim anything for it to even fit the original cowling.

In Extra 300 Profile Plane
I'm putting this in the forum so that I can easily modify these numbers if needed. Essentially there are 3 profiles. I will call them, solidbody Rigid: This is for highly stressed parts like landing gear or motor mounts. solidbody LWT: These components are solid bodies but are to be printed using settings that make them as light as possible. Most of the fuselage components use this setting. singlewall LWT: This setting is specifically for the main portion of the wings. Item number 1, solidbody Rigid: Lightweight PLA works, I use 240 degrees and set my extrusion to 65% My infill is set to 100 percent for these parts. Item number 2, solidbody LWT: Temp 240, extrusion to 65%, wall setting to 1 layer, top and bottom setting to 1 layer, infill set to 15%. Item number 3, singlewall LWT: Temp 240, extrusion to 65% Special modes setting will be set to "surface. You will need to print with a brim as this is a tall print.

My experience so far with the Fokker is that for a successful flight, you need to get it off the ground as quickly as possible. My lower wingtips are scratched up pretty good as a result of a few embarrassing ground loops. The good news is that this little plane can actually hold up to some really solid abuse. My suspension solution here has not been tested out yet but I wanted to make the files available early. I took a shot at redesigning the gear wing to allow for at least some suspension to smooth out the little bumps. Aside from a very tiny notching out of the rear gear legs, this is a direct replacement to what you already have. The axle is now a 4mm piano wire supported at the center of the gear wing and allowed to ride up and down at the wheel locations. The gear wing is given some rigidity by the addition of two 2mm carbon rods that will be CA glued in place. See Pic: Until this model is tested I won't include it in the main model files, but if you wish to receive it I set it up as a free download.

Lightweight PLA is some awesome stuff, but its just not working for control horns. On my model I have succeeded in snapping every one of them now. Fortunately it hasn't been a failure in the air, but rather ground handling, or let's be honest ground looping. It's frustrating to end a perfectly good flying day over something this simple. At this point I'd recommend removing them from the control surfaces after printing. In the next update I will have these removed from the parts altogether.

I just began did a test run of the motor system on this model with a new 4S 2200 mah battery. This little fan jet motor screams! you will need a 40 A. esc to do this, and the battery doesn't fit under the hood so I've begun a redesign of the cockpit and canopy to fit it all in.

I have not set this model as available yet because I did a complete redesign on this plane. Once it is test flown, it will go up for sale. make sure to subscribe to my newsletter and you will get a notice as soon as it is available.
