Description Carbon fiber part assembly as (large model plane) using minimum parts composite strength of nomex or similar allowing for ribless wings spar support in blended wing body. Truly designed as fast build kit or simple manufacture of parts via large mold parts that are faceted for fit and minimum refinish. Expect weight to be less than 1500 lbs including engines. Sized to fit routine T-hanger or special VTOL config tie down on self leveling shock absorbing struts. Jet engines are small, light and very fuel efficient with open ducted counter rotating twisted elliptical props for greater than 1000 lbs thrust per engine. Integrated computer control of thrust allows for VTOL transition to routing flight. Integral tanks to carry 960 lbs fuel or greater for enough of 4.5 hours with reserves. Reverse V vertical stabs adds to stability of BWB as well a main landing gear / strut landing devise. Speeds expected in excess of 350 knots. UAV mods possible.
