Today I finalized designs for a flying wing HPA. This has, in my opinion, the best chances of success and practicality. It's initial wingspan should be at about 50 feet (Breaking into One 2 foot center section, and Six 8 foot sections), being able to extend it's wingspan to a maximum of 60 feet. For the highest possibility of success, I will be keeping the empty weight of the aircraft down to 45 LBS. I plan to begin construction of the aircraft in October 2016 and will hopefully finish construction and begin testing in April-May of 2017. As of now, I am just trying to successfully get into the air under my own power, however, I will not rule out a possible Kremer Prize attempt, depending on the results of testing.
