Aircraft Description - First Generation Prototype

Posted 09.06.2012 in Reviews by Christopher

The tailless two-wing design is sometimes classified as a canard, although it is very different from a conventional canard. It is similar to a biplane, but with a pronounced negative stagger. The forward wings sweep back at 120 degrees to join the straight rear wing, which is mounted above the fuselage and the shrouded pusher propeller. The wings are joined in a box by vertical surfaces which contain split rudders.
