Valkyrie Conversion

Recently I’ve been 3D printing conversion parts for a pair of Valkyries I’m hoping to bring to a tournament soon. I really like the aesthetic of twin turbines for wings instead of the static wings that come with the kit so that’s what I’ve been working on. I recently posted this conversion on my Etsy store. On top of that, an article over at 3DPrintingIndustry.com was written up about my (then) unfinished conversion.

I ran some LEDs through the ducts in the wings and wired them inside of the plane. This is my first conversion with electronics involved and it was all very straightforward.
