A span-loaded, highly flexible flying wing, having horizontal control surfaces mounted aft of the wing on extended beams to form local pitch-control devices. Each of five spanwise wing segments of the wing has one or more motors and photovoltaic arrays, and produces its own lift independent of the other wing segments, to minimize inter-segment loads. Wing dihedral is controlled by separately controlling the local pitch-control devices consisting of a control surface on a boom, such that inboard and outboard wing segment pitch changes relative to each oth...
1. A flying wing aircraft, comprising: a laterally extending wing having a spanwise axis; wherein the wing has high torsional flexibility about the spanwise axis;a plurality of independently actuatable control surfaces; wherein the control surfaces are spaced apart along the span of the wing and connected thereto;a plurality of sensors connected to the wing; anda control system programmed to actively control the plurality of control surfaces based upon structural information data received from the plurality of sensors; wherein the control system independ...
