Overview for Dodekatheon

This is my blended wing body drone concept. It uses a highlift central body profile to give decent cargo carrying performance. The advantages of a blended wing body are a much better wetted area to volume ratio cutting out unnecessary drag. It also reduces manufacturing complexity as the body and wing root are molded as one single panel. The drone has a wide flat body and so simply lands on its belly at the drop off location. It then releases the clips on the central cargo pod and flys off leaving the pod on the ground. Alternatively workers can manually remove pods from the top of the craft once landed. The drone features inertia folding rotor blades, once the lift motors stop spinning the blades act as wingtips giving some increase to lift. For safety the craft has a parachute in the top, because of its high lift it would have some ability to glide if power was lost.
