Ducted fan aircraft can hover,take off and land vertically,and fly forward,which has high safety,compact structure and low noise.However,they generally can only fly forward slowly in helicopter mode.A new tilt-body ducted fan micro air vehicle(MAV) with wings which is capable of high-speed forward flight in wing-borne mode was designed.Pairs of wings were designed,and the geometry design reflects a compromise between low and high speed performance requirements.Numerical simulation and wind… CONTINUE READING
