PRELIMINARY DESIGN
AN EXPERIMENT INTO THE MODER-
NIZATION OF THE ARUP AIRCRAFT
DESIGN WITH A  BLEND OF ELECTRIC
TWIN FAN PROPULSION, TILT WING
THRUST FOR EXTREME STOL PER-
FORMANCE.
RENDERINGS CREATED IN 3DS MAX, THE SHAPE REDONE UNTIL THIS VERSION WAS LEFT.  NOTE THE MISSING RUDDER.  THIS IS A LIFTING BODY / FLYING
WING.  YAW CONTROL IS FROM TWO POPUP / POPDOWN FLAT 'YAW THRUSTERS' ON THE BACK AREA OF THE BODY'S SIDES.
CABIN DESIGN
THE ARUP WAS A SINGLE PASSENGER.  I MADE THE SYROS TO BE A 2 PASSENGER VEHICLE, TWIN FANS, HAVE THE PILOT SIT OUT IN FRONT LIKE A HELO.
FAR RIGHT, THE FAN LAYOUT, PROPULSION SYSTEM FROM TWIN TESLA AUTOMOTIVE POWER UNITS.  THE TILT FANS ARE ALSO THE AILERONS.
THE SYROS WILL HAVE A RETRACTABLE GEAR VERSION AS WELL AS FIXED GEAR.  THE CANOPIES OPEN FRONT AND REARWARDS.
LAMBORGHINI METALIC ORANGE, MILITARY PIXEL CAMMO, COLORIZED PLEXIGLASS (NEW AUTO INDUSTRY TREND IN CONCEPTS), HIGH GLOSS GRAY AS
A FLAT GRAY VERSION.  FLAT WHITE VERSION AS WELL AS A HIGH GLOSS VERSION.  TILT WING TIPS/TILT FANS REALLY IMPROVE TAKE-OFFS.
