This is referring to radical wing/lift designs!
I have seen and read of some amazing wing systems, (yet I cannot remember the name associated with them) than have artisits composite drawings.
Anyway, one of them was a circular wing that has what appears to be a 747 fuselage in the middle. The wing is actually a ring that can move forward
and aft the fuselage length to adjust lift....this ring any bells with anybody yet???
I want to say that the system is called, "non-linear wings", but I am not sure and it is driving me mad to remember.
There are a number of design concepts.....wait I just think I remembered, "Non-Planar Wings" some are square, others rounded, parallelogram in
If you have any links or thoughts to this phenomena...would you please add to this thread???
Thanks for your time, Mondo
