That fuselage has a great look to it. I'm looking forward to the rest of the build and first flight.

Wings Skinned


Wings are all skinned. Covering will start soon. Red and Black with some special decals on the vertical.

The canopy is a FreeWing Yak spare part that we picked up from motionrc.com

The back of the fan is directly above the trailing edg.

The battery compartment is very large, I can shift the batteries around. Plus the receiver packs can be placed almost anywhere. Sometimes we get the CG right with the component location, sometimes we are bit off. It’s a guess with these scratch built birds. We did the best we could using our Charger Jet (pictured below) as a guide thanks to it using the exact same power system.

11% is where I plan to test fly at.

Back At It


So after a couple years hiatus, I have gotten the Demon down and starting final assembly for flight. I got all the electronics installed and the fan mounted. All that’s left is the battery tray and final wire layout, and that oh so critical CG location.

Other than park flyers, I haven’t flown anything high performance since fall of 2018. I’m going to re-join the Reno RC Club and start flying the hot rods. Too cool of a Jet to dumb thumb in due to a lack of currency.
