Overview for SERVARE

This is a Canard designed drone that will hover as well as take off and land conventionally from a short runway and do the mission described in the Airbus Drone Challenge (i.e. 3kg payload 100 km, 5kg payload 60 km). Payload and batteries are on the CG so removal of the payload should not effect flight performance. All of the avionics are in an avionics bay near the nose of the aircraft and camera assembly is in the very nose.  Payload can be removed or put into the craft from the top or bottom. With it's unique shape, wing and canard out of the way and shrouded hover props, access to payload and batteries should be easy. Changing the batteries is done from the top.I choose putting the hoover props close to the fuselage in order to minimize disruption of flow over the wing. I also thought that having pods hanging off the fuse or wings with the hoover motors and props would cause a lot of drag during conventional flight. With more time I'd have covers designed for Servares hoover props that blend into the fuselage minimizing drag. I started very late in this challenge with a design and unfortunately lack CAD experience or mechanical drawing abilities and couldn't find anyone on short notice to do the CAD for me.   I started out with a blended wing design but ran into problems making that meet the requirements. I have experience with full scale canards and on RC models up to about 100 lbs that operate on electric power so I thought the Canard design might work. And it did on paper. It would be interesting to build a prototype of the Servare as a fully molded model to this scale.  In conclusion, if you can get past my poor drawings, what is here is a solid design that can meet the challenge. Thanks.
