Default Pipe-Dream - the stupidest and oddest build !

Yes - I have way too much time to think up this rubbish !! I should actually be sleeping - have ships moving during the night and I have to be around for it !

OK - Pipe-Dream ?

I bet someones already done it - so if you have a photo - then please upload for us to see it !!

Idea : Domestic plastic water-pipe .. that's the fuselage ... then flat plate wing and tail parts. Motor is mounted into the pipe ... battery / esc / servos onto the pipe where best and how best !

Fancy construction - no the simplest !

Anyone fancy it ?

I reckon a piece of 3/4 or 1" pipe ... maybe 2ft long. Flat plate wing maybe 2ft span... inserted through a slot in the pipe.
Tail parts are formed into a T shape and then slotted into rear of pipe with elevators / rudder accordingly.
Motor with X mount of ply / ? to fit to front. Wires run inside and then exit to ESC etc.

etc. etc.

Just for fun !!
