This UAV / Drone aircraft concept for the Airbus /Local Motors Cargo Drone Challenge was inspired by the organic forms found in nature, namely birds and sea creatures, who have evolved over millennia to move with speed and grace through fluid mediums. It intentionally offers an aesthetic that is neutral, safe and elegant, it has been designed to not be intimidating. This is an important aspect, which I feel is pivotal in the uptake for commercial drones, in the present geopolitical climate. The UAV Concept pushed the boundaries and has features that are extremely radical and need proving in a real world environment and cost justifications need to be assessed. Nevertheless ideas from this concept could be refined further for incorporation into a commercial version.
