Overview for Icarus

- No hover propeller before the main wing -> better predictability, lower transition speed, less drag during transition and horizontal flight, safe area before main wing for crew
- Aircraft configuration is commonly used for sailplanes-> well known, less risky, highly efficient
- Hover control concept allows to integrate 4 of the six propellers inside the airframe -> less drag
- Extra yaw propellers improve side wind robustness of aircraft during hover
- Mounting of hover propellers near surfaces, where the disturbance forces are created (stabilizer, vertical tail) reduces structural loads
- Pusher propeller instead of puller propeller creates space for front camera, reduces drag (boundary layer ingesting), creates safe area in front of the main wing (no spinning devices)
- Mounting of main drive engine in front part of the fuselage helps to achieve the design c.o.g. position
