The Roughgen is a 3D printable airframe, based on many molded slope racing / performance gliders from the past 30 years. Bread from F3F competition, the RG15 airfoil is a known performer with a huge speed range and excels many conditions from light lift to booming thermals. With a 1.2m wingspan, the Roughgen is small enough to easily fit just about anywhere, but big enough to be seen easily even at a distance. The design was specialty formulated to deal with rough landings in bushes and rocky areas with a reinforced leading edge and features to hold carbon support. Flies like a molded plane, but you print the parts. Print extras for repairs or print multiple copies. 2+ complete sets can be printed from 1kg of material.
Designed to be printed in any type of material. Carbon reinforcement is recommended but not necessary. Less than 20 individual pieces.
This is the 3 servo version: aileron left/flap, aileron/flap right, and elevator.
Different tail, wing and power pods nose variations available separately.
What do you get:
- STL files for each part
- Building instructions
- Print Settings for Cura and Simplify3D
Update - v1c - improve printing for Cura on wing and tail pieces
Update - v1d - improve geometry of elevator horn and tail location for better alignment of pushrod, easier fit of radio tray
Update - v1e - reprofiled the wing surface geometry to closer match the true airfoil shape, better structure and improved stiffness. resized the 6mm spar pass-through to work with size differences in Cura Slicer. Re-organized the part naming.
Update - v2b - updated fuse and tail files for faster printing, cross tail vertical stab assembly tabs added.
