Global Hawk UAV VTOL

UAV VTOL Project

Global hawk uav vtol

I decided not so long ago that I was going to build a vtol (Vertical takeoff or landing) plane, after some reasearch I was surprised at the lack of information over the net linking to this topic.

I was pasionate and dedicated in designing my own version of a VTOL, but not many people had attempted it, the information I was finding was aimed at moddifiy RC planes but this was not for me I wanted something special something that stood out from the rest.

After days and days of googling I came up with pretty much nothing, I was stressing, I found that the only avalible software was ardupilot and they had their wiki on q-planes this help.

But was still confused about how i should go about designing the actual body, a few days later I remember that many years ago I had designed a Northrop Grumman RQ-4 Global Hawk, this was purfect I loved the look of this UAV.

the design had to be reworked the wings firstly got removed from the plane in blender.
