3D printed 60" Extreme Flight YAK 54 cowl inlet

Inlet vanes for an R/C airplane.
One thing that has always bugged me about the Yak is the way the “inlet vanes” look in the front of the cowl. No amount of cutting and trimming looked really good to me. So I decided to print one.

I printed this with ABS plastic filament and the total weight is 23g. The material I removed from the fiberglass cowl weighed 13g. So, the net weight gain is 10g, not including glue and paint.
