Challenges motivating low canard sled wing

  • SoGHG stumbles
  • Downwind landings
  • Flatland long gliding
  • Downwind downslop out landings over plants and rocks
  • In replacement of wheels
  • Monitor platform
  • Thermal sniffer
  • Light holder
  • So basebar of TCF basebar and pilot parts are not snagged
  • Instead of skids or wheels

Materials

  • At breakage, netting embedding is wanted to keep parts from going into the pilot.
  • The bracing member(s) could be also with netting embedded to prevent breakage to fly into the pilot.

Structure

  • Airfoil is to be double-convexed.
  • Holding braces are to be streamlined.
