I feel like Lockheed would do well to take a jaunt down the coast and poach some technicians from the surf shops. Modern rapid-prototyped stealth
would be just up their alley.
Which then begs the question, why is it that nobody has tried to leverage their experience glassing together a Long-EZ to try and build a small
homebuilt stealth aircraft? Looking at the RQ-170, it honestly doesn't look like it would be that hard for someone with a basic understanding of
stealth shaping, RCS reduction, and RAM formulation to slap something together that would be about the size of a BD-5 or a Long-EZ and have an RCS
roughly the size of an F-117 if not somewhat smaller.
