This modeled Cessna 206 is to replicate an old toy that i couldn't find new for my little Julie.
It turned out to be a fun project, i used existing model from Onshape and made necessary conversion for 3d printing using #Fusion360 and #PrusaSlic3r . Machine used is #AnyCubic I3 mega S #Esun PLA filaments which turned out to be great combination.
It's powered by a salvaged geared 815 coreless motor from a cheap drone, i'll leave a similar one in links below.
500mah battery is enough for 2 mins flight and charges using a 18650 micro board. tiny power switch is used and can be visible in the right door handle.

i only added few STL files in preview, remaining in RAR file for better part organization

Materials and methods

layer height:0.24
line width:0.42

please print using the recommended height and width, however for small parts it's better to got down to 0.16 layer heigh and 0.32 width.
i tried to set tricky parts on correct printing orientation for best layers adhesion and fewer spport and the rest remains random so feel free to experiment.
most parts doesn't need supports if your printer is tuned properly or if you're willing to spend a liitle time in post processing

little pieces of filament is used to connect parts together.
Add weight as nessesary in weight box that goes in the nose. piece of PLA can be glued to the box and passed through the instrument panel to easily adjust the balalnce after assembly if required.
please glue the wings to the body as last thing after you made test fit and flight, the plane should be a little nose heavy and rudder adjusted as in images to function properly.

Perfect, i sacrificed some supports and in return some defects in final results for a lot faster print time.
