I decided to go a different way with my build. I always wanted an airliner but can't seem to find a decent kit anywhere and I am not much of a scale buff so I like having a bit of wiggle room. This seems perfect, it has an airline look but has some cool features that I think airplanes in the future will have, the high aspect ratio wing and an efficient power-train/design. I've seen interpretations where it has propellers and some with turbines. Officially its a "twin-engine concept with a hybrid propulsion system that combines gas turbine and battery technology, a tube-shaped body and a truss-braced wing mounted to the top of the aircraft. This aircraft is designed to fly at Mach 0.79 carrying 154 passengers 3,500 nautical miles. "
Not sure what Scale I'll go for and in fact, I don't have a 3 view so this will take a good deal of interpretation.
I never designed a plane other than free hand so I'd like a suggestion for what software I should go for. Preferably free and open source, I'd like it to be able to use for future 3d printing if that's possible. Suggestions
As for the plane It'll certainly be a lengthy process for me as I usually go for simple builds but want to make something nice that is simple enough but still captures the lines of the aircraft well. Stay tuned and I could use some help with my design process so let me know where to start.
