Need help on slicing settings

Howdy All

Been printing for awhile now but new to really dealing with print settings in Cura. I am using version 4.8. 

I have used the suggested settings and profile setups to print my RC Eagle but when switched back to my regular PLA settings then back to the profile for printing my project, I get a shelled version when sliced. Check the attached pic. Top picture is what is should look like but the bottom pic is what I get when sliced.

What am I missing? Did I make a setting in an area where not needed by accident or am I missing something simple.

Again, I never messed around with settings before so I am learning as I go along.

Any suggestions?

    Not sure but I think you either have "spiralize" turned on or infill turned off.  Most likely spiralize.

     

    If you click on the star next to the profile name and click all the tabs (usually just extruder 1) you can see what you have overridden versus the default.  Typically they are italic if you changed something.
