We are building a huge library of 3D Printed RC models. There will be many free and paid models in our library and we will upgrade our equipment to create better contents with the income we get from paid models. Our goal is guide people who can reach 3D printers to take up this hobby. This way they can print their first models without RC Model making experience in minimum cost. There will be concept RC models and many hand tool design on Craycle Library in the future. Always your ideas are important to us, please Contact Us for your suggestions and questions.
Welcome to Craycle Community
FPV Orca - 780
Our first model FPV Orca is a FPV Racing model for mid-level pilots. With the recommended equipment, it can reach a speed of 235 km/h. It is a model suitable for general user group with its compact size, easy printing and easy assembling. Orca has a big loading space, is suitable for long range FPV and Autonomous flights. You can print the model by spending only 215 grams of filament in 35 hours. Minimum print bed size is 190*190*190 cm.
Ranger Mini - 800
Ranger Mini is designed for beginners. It is a model that is easy to print, has slow flight characteristics, is easy to control and is suitable for people who will fly for the first time. With a minimum of 3 channels of control, the model can maneuver using only two servos. Since Aileron does not have control surfaces, it is simple to fly and assemble, and it is also a very enjoyable model. This model has been released for free with beginners and students in mind. In the future, more functional and FPV compatible sports models will be offered to you.
Craycle Special Techniques
Unseparated Control Surfaces
Thin and long parts such as columns are difficult to print on 3D printers. Especially if this piece is printed with a hollow single wall line count. Model airplane control surfaces are examples of these parts. Long wing parts also have long control surfaces. Printing these parts requires the advanced printer usage experience and is quite laborious. As a solution to this, I modeled the control surfaces together with the wing to be connected to the wing at certain intervals. After the print, the control surfaces can be easily separated from the wing. (You can watch the video by clicking the link in the image to see how it works). In this way, we are able to print control surfaces together with the wings in an error-free and easy way. We don’t have to worry about control surfaces any more. You can Contact Us to exchange information on the subject.
There are many amazing wing print techniques and skeleton designs. Each Model may have different design approaches due to its flight characteristics and mechanical design, but I think the most important issue is to ensure continuous printing design, especially in regions requiring high strength. The Ranger Mini is a training model and we developed a new technique to balance lightness and strength while designing the wing structure of this model. From time to time, the printer creates columns in the wing cavity without pulling back. Thanks to this technique, the printer never retracts during wing printing. As the nozzle returns to its starting point in each layer without retraction, the filament flow continues throughout the print without any speed change or pause. This ensures that the printed model is thermally stable, the layers adhere better, the model surface looks flawless and the printing speed can be increased. By downloading Ranger, you can examine the layers in detail on Cura. A more detailed blog post on the subject will be added.
Do You Have a Special Project?
But you don’t have the experience or time to do mechanical and industrial design for your product? We provide professional Product Design service for your project. The processes we dominate; 3D Printing, Carving, Composite, Casting, Metalworking, Woodworking, Piping, Coating, Painting.
How does it work?
The project workflow takes place in three stages; Sketch Design, Modeling, Production and Testing. Separate prices are determined for these three stages and the proposed amount is collected before starting each stage. Your approval and payment are always received before proceeding to the next stage.
A Different Way
If your project is one that can be realized with modifications to any of our existing models, this will be a less costly option for you.
For example; You need a UAV design that can fly autonomously. If the equipment you will use in this project is compatible with our FPV Orca model, it will customized and developed for your project. Three-stage workflow system is applied for this option as well.
Doesn’t Have to Be an RC Model!
Since we support your project in terms of visual and mechanical design, we can realize any kind of project. Knowing the concept and needs, examining similar products will help us design a product that will provide a better user experience. For this reason, you should talk about your project in detail and support it with additional resources and visuals. Remember, we are not developing your idea. We design and prototype the product that best fits your idea, will provide the best user experience, and have maximum manufacturability with minimum cost.
Your Product Idea is Safe
Only Craycle Hobby Manager reads all e-mails sent with the contact forms.
You can contact us right now.
How is it priced?
We carefully read your project idea and requests and make a 3-stage business plan for your project. While making the pricing; Time to be spent for each stage, necessary equipment and, if necessary, outsourced support expenses are taken into account. Since the biggest parameter affecting the price is the time to be spent on the project, the way of adapting the existing models will be the minimum cost option for you.

I am a mechanical technician and a product designer. I have about 4 years of Heavy-Duty Industrial Truck design experience. I am interested in RC Models since 2012 and i am also interested in Industrial Design. I founded Craycle Hobby to pursue my dreams and to spread the knowledge of aviation. With free models, I aim to make RC modeling accessible to the whole world, and to create a community that learns and has fun together.
