    The blended wing body (BWB) concept is a relatively new concept of an aircraft. The wings and the fuselage blend into one integral structure greatly reduce drag and increases lift thus making it a highly efficient design. The aim of the research was to design a radio controlled small scale BWB aircraft for use over long ranges at low altitudes in order to deliver payloads. The BWB was divided into the center body and the outer wing. Four airfoils, HS522, LA2573A, NACA 25111 and MH78 were analyzed in XFLR5. In consideration of their lift and moment characteristics, NACA 25111 and MH78 were selected for the center body and the wing respectively. The stall speed and wing loading were the primary factors used in determining the area and size of the aircraft which converged to a design having a five feet wingspan. Center of gravity was placed ahead of aerodynamic center to provide static a.. Read More»
