wondering if this will do the job, https://asun.vn/Bo-May-In-3D-Nhom-Tronxy-X5St-400-Diy-Kich-Thuoc-In-Lon-400--400--400Mm-85352.htm

i also not it says 0.1-0.4 nozzle.. dont know if it can do 0.8 for 100% scale
Don't know anything about that particular printer, but the Tronxy name says stay away to me. The only Tronxy printers I've seen people mess with a very low quality, and they had a lot of trouble.

Print time for the plane should be around 55 - 60 hours depending on settings and printer for PETG. PLA can be done faster at 45-50 hours.
 
ooooh, i remember seeing this a while back... Finally just ordered my first 3d printer. Can't wait to get to the level where i can start printing planes!
 
got my Emax 2306 with a Hobbywing Platinum 40A ESC, a pair of EMAX ES08MAII Servos, and a Pair of AHTEC Skyline 4S 14.8V Lipos ready, Planes almost fully printed, just need to assemble it all..... Wondering if i can tie in a BeagleBone Blue and Ardupilot, or Pixhawk.... is there enough room.

Almost the entire forward fuselage section can be used as storage. So there's a ton of room in there.
 
Does it sound right that scaled to 72" The Northern_Pike is 10 kg when printed is finish. Is it posible to fly ? going to need a larger motor, prop and esc for sure.

Sorry, we started Apple harvest and I've been busy. Looks like you've got it figured out though. I never calculated the weight on a 72% version, but could do so later this weekend. 10kg sounds like an awful lot.

I would think cubic wing loading should go down a good bit for a larger plane, so if you get a power system that's a good fit it should fly awesome.

Has anybody printed this on an Ender 3 using Cura? I cant seem to find the setting that will slice the inner rib structures. If so, i would really appreciate it if you could send me your cura print profile that I could import to make it work. Thanks for any help you can lend.

On Thingiverse there is a profile called thinwallAirplanePLA.curaprofile that I have tried to use but it does not seem to work on my Ender 3. Maybe you will have better luck.
