Description Flying wing was designed and build by ITA students for SAE Brasil AeroDesign Competition 2016, advanced Class. It has MTOW of 24 kg at 60 meters of takeoff runway, 5 minutes of flight autonomy using electric propulsion from Schubeler DS-51-DIA HST Edf Engine with 15S MaxAmps LiFePo4 batteries. Video: We use OpenVSP to predict Structural Inertia, CoG and empty weight for our Optimization algorithm. We Designed internal structures using Conformal elements, this model don't have it.

Nice design! Flies pretty well too. But I think it needs more power, maybe a twin EDF, and also a smaller height on the airfoil section (more sleek to cut the air ) whilst maintaining the same lift area of the wing. On the other hand I really like the idea of using an EDF on a delta wing, and the landing gear is awesome! Last but not least you`ve made a good choice with the LiFe batteries (more weight but safer). Have a nice day!
