3D Printed Kit on PLA Zivko EDGE Hannes Arch.

This is a great scale model of the famous Zivko Edge. This model is very well designed and flies well. Thanks to its large control surfaces it can deliver fast manoeuvres and at the same time be very controllable.

It requires 4 sevos and a 40 amps esc.

Two landing gears are included, one in PLA in the same colour of the rest of the plane and one in PET-G in grey. PET-G is extremely resistant. It is not necessary to flue the landing gear, it will slide in and become secure to the fuselage fixing holes so you can always swap it.

Replying to one of the comments:

The PLA I use on these models (as of 6/2017) is rated with nearly the same heat resistance and tensile strength as ABS, it will hold up to 85C. So it will resist the hear from the motor and battery pack.

The motor is fixed from behind and the front of the plane is wide open and it also has side vents, plenty of cooling under normal circumstances.

Hot weather

In the Summer it's advisable to not let a printed plane inside the car under the sun, it will become deformed like any other plane made of plastic. At the flying field, planes made or painted with dark colors can become hot and can become deformed, leave your printed plane in the shade.

About 3D Printed Model Airplanes
If you have doubts about how these models are designed, printed and how the fly, this page is for you.

Before anything else, watch this video.

The most common question I get is:

-How do these planes fly?

The video at the right is from FliteTest's Youtube channel, they installed cameras on the plane and filmed it in flight with a drone, these images are not only spectacular but they also allow us to see the behavior of the plane in flight. Enjoy!

This P-38 in the video requires:

  • 12 channels radio if you don´t use y-cables.
  • 4-5 full days straight to print on one printer if everything goes well.

All our 3D Printed planes are here.

About 3DLabPrint models

These models are designed by Stepen in the Czech Republic, are easy and quick to build and have excellent flight characteristics. The gear is pretty standard, usually 9 or 12 grams servos and two power setups are usually suggested, one composed of high quality motor, ESC and battery and another made from inexpensive HobbyKing stuff but still very capable and with good performance.

When you build from a plan or when you assemble a wood kit, usually you add parts to a developing structure, you may have the fuselage done then you may add a servo tray then you may add a motor mount and so on, on these printed planes everything is built with full integration in mind, all the internal reinforcements, all the linkages, all the ducts for wiring, all the fixtures are one with the structure, in fact, many times you have ducts for the servo wires acting as an internal wing reinforcement.

This is a revolutionary way of thinking or better, a revolutionary way of fabricating model airplanes because many of us had already thought about how good this kind of approach could be but actually doing it has always been the problem.

Even with the advent of high quality/low cost 3D printers this has not became immediately possible, it took a very gifted person, Stepen, to create a design method and correspondent print setting to make these marvelous models possible.

I hope you are not afraid to try the latest in model airplane construction, I´m sure you will be delighted with these amazing model airplanes.

Terms of Service.
Please read the 3D Printing Service Terms of Use before placing an order.

About the 3D File source:

The Zivko EDGE Hannes Arch was designed by 3DLabPrint and will be printed by AeroFred as a service.

Model Printing and Order Processing:

Printing a model airplane requires many hours of printing, typically, for the models we sell, between 24 and 280 hours if the job is done one one single printer. Luckily we have many printers so your new plane will be ready to ship in 1-2 days.


Models from 3DLabPrint can be scaled up by up to 130% depending on the model but please know that when these models are printed all the needed fixtures for motor, battery pack, servos, links, wiring ducts are also printed so they would all be scaled so additional work will be required on your end to fit the gear.
As an example, the Edge uses 5 grams servos, if scaled to 130% (1,56m) the servo slots will hold 12 grams servos perfectly but the motor mount will have to be adapted. This can be easily done by using bolts from end to end and washers in the back. Not beg deal. But on the P-47 that uses retracts the ob is not this easy, you would have to create a plate with holes to secure the retracts to the wing.


We can´t do modifications at design level. However, PLA glues very well with CA and accelerator so you can do as in any other model airplane kit, you can add balsa or lite ply and you can make any modifications yourself.

You will receive:

  • Complete Zivko EDGE Hannes Arch 3D Printed KIT on PLA or individual parts for the same model, depending on your order.
  • One piece of printed PLA, some bad print I may have around here, so you can do your experiments and tests instead of trying on the plane itself.
  • Cardboard box with appropriate cushioning so the parts are protected during the shipment.
  • Assembly manual printed copy from 3DLabPrint if requested at the ordering page.

The paper manual is free but not included by default because it adds weight that may make the postage costs climb considerably. I reserve the right to add the paper manual or not.
In any case the manual can be downloaded in PDF format in this same page and it will have links to web pages where some of the needed parts an be ordered.

You will NOT receive:

  • 3d .stl or .gcode files, project files or any files at all apart from the pdf manual.
  • CA Glue or CA Accelerator.
  • Electronic components.
  • Wheels, hinges, propellers, screws, piano wire, carbon fiber tubes or rods, paint or decals.

Vinyl decals do not stick on 3d printed planes, the only way to add insignia, camouflage, letterings is to paint with acrylic spray paint and a stencil or a mask.

Assembly and preparation:

Modeling work it´s your job :)
You will have to follow the manual to assembly this kit and do all the work needed, this is a model airplane Kit, not a toy.

About our printers:

We use high quality original 3D Printers, no Chinese clone printers or cheap Ebay 3d printers.

About the different filament types:

PLA: PLA is the most used material on 3d printing today, it prints well, with good finishing and little or no warping.
ABS: ABS is one of the most commonly used plastic, Legos are ABS, your car bumpers are probably ABS. This material has a high resistance to heat and it´s strong. It would be perfect for our planes if it wasn´t so hard to print.
PET-G: PET-G is the material used on plastic bottles, it´s very strong and has a heat resistance close to ABS, the only drawback is it´s flexibility. PET-G it´s a little more flexible than PLA but still can be used for printed planes.

As you see no material is perfect, I could continue describing other materials such as nylon, carbon impregnated PLA and so on and we would always find positive and negative aspects for each one of them.
Solution, we use PLA, namely NatureWorks 3d850 or 870 PLA that is one of the best, if not the best PLA in production today and for landing gears, motor mounts and other parts that require higher temperature tolerance and/or mechanical resistance we use ABS or PET-G.


We will use strong double wall cardboard boxes and the appropriate cushioning to protect each one of the printed parts, every part is rolled on bubble wrap plastic film.


We ship from Portugal, Europe and use the reliable Portuguese mail system CTT.
CTT has delivery agreements with different entities on each country so if you´re from the US you may have your order delivered by USPS, in the UK may be Royal Mail and so on.


We charge according to the ctt.pt postage table. The smaller planes that fit boxes up to 90cm (sum of the three dimensions) we ship as a "letter" so the postage it´s cheap, larger planes have to be shipped as a package, there is no way around it and this is why the postage it´s expensive.

Priority Mail w/ Tracking:

All 3D Printed models and parts are shipped by priority mail that is traceable, larger boxes are shipped as a package that is also registered and traceable and will arrive as quick as priority mail.


We will only accept returns of non assembled, undamaged complete models or spare parts.
Postage fees from the original order are non refundable and you will have to pay the postage back to us.
No re-stocking fee if everything arrives in good condition.
In doubt please ask us for an opinion.


Orders can be paid with Paypal or Credit Card via Paypal and are shipped to the address on your Paypal account or to the address you set at checkout.

High Performance Engine Bdunz on 21/04/2017 15:44
The motor listed for the High Performance Setup is AX-4008Q-620KV. I find an AX-4008Q-600KV quadcopter motor at Hobby King and the same motor is referenced several times in google, but nothing (out-runner, etc. ) that matches the description and there is nothing in the manual to give me a clue. What motor is recommended?
Zivko EDGE Hannes Arch derfred on 22/04/2017 10:57
Hello Barry,

The suggested high performance motor is this one:

This is the motor listed in the "High performance setup" in the manual.

It is an out-runner and can be used on a quadcopter or on a plane. An out runner is nothing but a motor on which the outer can with the magnets rotate and the coil is fixed, an in runner is the opposite, the magnets are fixed and the coil rotates with the shaft.

As ESC I would suggest this one:
3D Flying possibilities Wingzar on 24/05/2017 08:00
Hello !
I am really interested in the plane but I haven't been able to figure out if this little can do 3D. Is it capable of 3D flying ?
I also would be curious to know what is the advantage of using a high voltage like 6S compared to a standard 3/4S that is often used for this size of planes.

Thanks in advance for you answers !
Zivko EDGE Hannes Arch derfred on 26/05/2017 09:37
Hello Wingzar,

This is not a 3D plane, the control surfaces are large but not as large on a 3D plane. I would say it falls between a sport plane and a 3D.

The advantage of using the quadcopter motor... Well, I guess the only advantage would be if the designer had many of these laying around :) I would put a power setup as you say, 2200 mA/h 3 or 4 S at the most and a 35 mm can motor, the length of the can could be around 36mm so a C3536 instead of the eco setup you see in the description and around 1000 KV possibly 1200 KV and you would have a pretty powerful setup for a plane this size.

Kind regards,
What will I get netsnake on 24/06/2017 05:56
I coudnt figure out if the price is for the real parts or for the printdata only.
What size of print area is needed ?
Does the PLA material resist the heat of the motor or akku ?

great work
Zivko EDGE Hannes Arch derfred on 02/07/2017 17:35
The price is for a KIT (a real plane printed on PLA in the chosen colour)

Yes it will resist the hear from the motor and battery pack.

In this model the motor is fixed from behind and the front of the plane is wide open and it also has side vents, plenty of cooling under normal circumstances.
