A vehicle adapted for airborne flight and waterborne sailing has a fuselage (20) with left and right wings (52, 54) that pivot independently about a respective longitudinal axis from a generally horizontal orientation for flight to a generally vertical orientation to provide wind-driven propulsion for sailing. Further, the wings (52, 54) pivot about a respective second axis (66) that is generally perpendicular to the longitudinal axis to trim the wings (52, 54) for sailing with a given relative wind direction. The wings (52, 54) are mounted by a respecti...
The invention claimed is: 1. A vehicle adapted for airborne flight and waterborne sailing, the vehicle comprising: a fuselage comprising a roll axis; a left wing and a right wing; each wing connected to the fuselage by a respective first pivotal joint allowing the wing to rotate about a first pivot axis generally parallel to the roll axis from a generally horizontal wing position for providing lift during flight of the vehicle to a generally vertical wing position for providing wind-driven propulsion during sailing of the vehicle; each wing connected to...
