I must say that as a 3D printing enthusiast I've been following these developments with great interest. I wonder, Dave if you are able to source the LW PLA that I've been playing with down there in Adelaide? Once you've got the printer 'tuned in' it is very nice stuff to work with. It could be just the ticket for fabricating ducts.

The second thought that crosses my mind is that some form of reaction powered R/C might be possible with some of todays minature R/C gear. Types such as the Me163 and the EE Lightning naturally suit an intial full throttle climb out and a coast back to land. I'm no expert on R/C hardware. I'd be interested if you could suggest a configuration that might suit (that doesn't have a battery eliminator circuit as part of a motor speed controller.)

I tried scouring the net for the Aerographics plan of the ME163 Komet. Daniel supplied a few photo's which I worked with and did quite well in building the plans up using them. No sooner had I finished the tedious reconstruction of the plans when I discovered a fellow micro jet enthusiast over in Canada had made a smaller version some 12 years ago as a pusher model and still had a copy of the plans he used so sent the image files to me and I am now in the middle of redrawing my plan with the correct shapes as the photo's did distort the shapes somewhat. Reading the text was the other challenge. ;)

I have also manged to get all the parts drawn up that are on the 3 sheets of balsa that came with the kit.
