Default Finally 3D printed something for my heli's

Long story short, the tail control rod support that came with the carbon rod was a steaming POS and broke apart midflight some time first time out, so I made a better one!

Talking Sweet!

That's awesome bud!

What printer are you using and how long did it take you to print that?

I'm somewhat of a newbie to the 3d printing world but find it fascinating

I'm trying to print some legs for my T40.

Hope it turns out well

Bumming off my friends lulzbot taz right now, printer works pretty dang good. Took maybe 10 minutes to print that part. It is interesting designing parts specifically to be printed to limit support material needed and reduce print time
