    Be aware that a 5 inch prop is 128 mm across so any duct made will be 160 mm across. This includes the duct wall and the duct aero-lip. Below is a photo from my Excel spreadsheet. Obviously you can make one with a smaller lip but most of the lift would be lost.

    You could alway contract a print house to make one for you… With ABS / PLA the cost is about $10 per duct.

    Thus far thats what I’ve done as the cost for a printer cant be justified.

    If someone wants to make a 3d printer space for cheap the youtube channel MakersMuse is currently doing a maker space for $500. This includes everything, including computer, tools, and 3d printer.

    Would never be able to justify the cost to my wife.
