That's a really cool way to create an plane. $20 for plans and they say it's only $10 worth of material so if someone local could print it for a reasonable cost it might be worth while. The P51 uses a 620kv motor and a 6s lipo with claims of up to 165 km cruising speed and 205 km limit. It would likely fly with other set-ups as it's under 700g complete without the battery.
MAAC: 19887

I never crash, I just create exciting ways to reach the ground.

nice, the author is Michael Molitch-Hou, who now has joined the Enterprise In Space project, and did an awesome article for 3D Printing Industry -
