In Design

The Northrop N-9M was an approximate one-third scale, 60-ft wide, all-wing aircraft used for the development of the 172-ft wide Northrop XB-35 and YB-35 flying wing  long-range, heavy bomber program. First flown in 1942, the N-9M (M for Model) was the third in a lineage of all-wing Northrop aircraft designs and was intended to prove the concept as practical and safe.

We have always been interested in the Northrop wings, and this one should look great in the air. It will be designed to use electric power, but will also be good as a PSS (unpowered slope soarer).

It will be a while before we have this one ready, but keep in touch if you’re interested in it.
