Introducing The "Demon-Claw" 3D RC plane!

Hi Demondriver here and I want to share with you what might be the easiest to build 3D plane EVER! I give you the Demon-Claw!

This is part of my very own "Pool-noodle" rc plane designs that use a simple pool noodle as their nucleus.

This plane is Soo easy to build you don't even need plans! My Demon-Claw build video will be all you'll need to build your own!. The build video and maiden flight will be up in a few days!

super simple concept even looks good...

Could probably mill out the foam and seat the motor to be hidden in the nose and add a spinner ?

Thanks! it's a very easy plane to build . . . You add a carbon fiber rod to the inside of the noodle to make it rigid so it won't bend.

Mill out a seat & spinner . .....Sure why not!

Cool. A bouncy plane! Allways a good plan at my skill level

Did you slice it into 4 segments? I suppose you can also reduce the segment gradually towards back to get a tapered fuse...

Does the vertical profile section form a sorta spine?

Me likey!

Hi George! I cut a slit for the wings and stabilizer. . . And didn't cut the noodle in any other places. The spine is a carbon fiber rod placed inside the noodle.

Hi Atrocityx it uses a small 1000kv 25gram motor, 1 20 Amp speed controller and HXT 900 and 500 blue servos. . . And a 7 volt or 11 volt lipo battery.

The ESC, RX and Battery fit inside a groove you cut into the noodle itself.
