Concept for an Air Taxi
Small Aircraft VTOL, fully computer controlled, V-shape, no "wings".
Makes use of the CONADA Effect.
Electrically driven FANS. Electric, hybrid for now!
Concept A: underbody fans
Concept B: many small fans on the sides of the airframe
For both concepts: Forward - electric or jet
Air pressure system for Directional Control
Positions and size for Air Inlets for A and B fans are only indicated. Have to be positioned and sized during detail design for throughput air requirements.
Different "V" shaps have to be investigated to achieve the best compromise.
Movable flaps could be used at air discharges to use fans for forward flight.
Best for 3-seat or 4-seat Taxi. Larger models after initial tests of final designs.
