This is an Add-on entry for the De Havilland DH.98 Mosquito WWII bomber offered on Cults3D by GozzLabs. No flaps nor retracts and designed for hand-launch. You will need to acquire the following to complete this R/C warbird:
Included with this file:
• New STL files for fuselage, tail feathers, spinners
• Factory files for Simplify3D
• Assembly manual and user guide
• Sample markings - TBD
2021-12-10: Updated nose cone (F0) to install counter-balance lead. CG at 50mm is OK but sensitive elevator. 45mm likely better.
2021-10-27: 2mm torque wire to link elevator halves. Updated spinner for printed props.
2021-11-23: Added an optional working rudder and matching fin. Check for files FinB/RudderB.stl. Passing pushrod and servo installation is left to the builder.

All the parts will fit in a 200x200x250 printer. For LW-PLA, it is best to print 1 part at a time.
My designs are always evolving with feedback from builders and flight testing. For any questions and assistance please use the RC-Group thread:
