Just a hint of what's to come. You'll need to use PLA, not ABS plastic, and it's a challenging print, but just imagine what will be possible as 3D printing technology improves. The design files are here.

That's cool, but I could make a better one with lighter materials, and using my hands a ruler and exacto knife.
Nice. I'm going to suggest to him that maybe he should print the frame/skeleton, and cover the large surfaces with paper. That would make it lighter, and easier to print.
Great in the next day i try with my MultiMaker32 ( my branch of reprap prusa) to print it and try to fly it with my kids :)
It really does work! Had a bit of a problem with raft adhesion on the right wing (an artifact of my bed not being entirely level), but that will be moot on the next run. Really could print raftless...
