Overview for Airbus ArchAngel

ArchAngel is a design that began with aerodynamics first.  It was inspired the great lineage and active innovation Airbus is currently undertaking such as the BelugaXL, the eConcept, and the Perlan Mission 2.

ArchAngel is in essence a modernized sailplane/glider.  It features long swept wings with high AR, a forward-biased center of gravity, and long elevator lever arm.  To deal with the uneven Cg, it uses a modified Y orientation for lift propellers with 4 props in front and 2 in back for a redundant lift force of 27kg.

If features numerous meticulous details that are nice when considered individually, but compelling together.  The design pushes all the propellers away from where the user would go to retrieve the cargo.  Further, a combination of warning lights, kill switch, and cargo release buttons make the interaction feel comfortable and safe.

I hope you like my design.  Best wished to everyone!  :-)
