FT Scout dimensions


Active member
Hi, I bought the mini Scout a few months ago, I flew it a lot, I crashed it... Now my fuselage is dead. As I have a 3D printer I'm thinking of rebuilding the whole fuselage with 3D printed parts. But I still have an issue. Where could I find the exact dimensions of the parts please ?

Thank you

From the plans, view/print off at 100%.
A 3d printed fuselage will be much heavier than a simple FB one, plus take longer to draw and assemble. The minis are very weight sensitive, too heavy and they fly like a fast moving brick.
I would buy a single sheet of foamboard and make a new fuselage, then save the 3d print for a lightweight pilot and some machine guns for scale detail! You can also print firewalls and control horns if you need those.

Weaker and still likely heavier than foamboard. There’s times when 3d printing is the best option, this isn’t one of them. I own a printer, wouldn’t use it for a fuselage.
