Fast, small and simple, the Super SkyHornet
is a miniature paper airplane designed as a more capable successor to the older SkyHornet
. The Super SkyHornet has lower wing loading and is equipped with leading edge root extensions (LERX) for better handling.
The concept of the Super SkyHornet was based around that of a new aircraft combining the traits of both the SkyHornet and the smaller Locust
drone interceptors. The primary goals of this effort were to design an aircraft with fewer materials used; less weight; and more simplicity in production. All of this goals were met by the Super SkyHornet, which triumphed.
TAA USAF Designation: D280-1
