It's not exactly a 'Fixed wing' - but it will be electric :)

@CarolineTyler - it's a buzz to get an awesome print after a long wait - I had a few failures after 20 odd hours of printing that really blew my whistle - looking forward to seeing the final bird (can we call it a bird) in the air!

My biggest fear was not having enough filament...the PETG parts finished with just ten windings on the spool!!!!! Phew!
Of course after a day and a half of printing of the red part I was so willing the printer not to get caught on anything and layer shift.
It's remarkably solid and Tom designed it so well, even including a battery strap channel.
First flight within a fortnight, hopefully!
