    Alright, this is a post dedicated to the GEOBAT.

    It is a flying saucer plane design, and it actually works.
    A working prototype exists, and has passed wind-tunnel tests.

    Enjoy...

    I love the Geobat. It really is an amazing design! I actually put my own twist on it too not all that long ago.

    It sure did! It flew very well. I had it setup to seperately drop two "bombs" too. It was loads of fun. I was so sad to take it apart when I needed the electronics for another project.

    If you think about it...

    The Geobat is nothing but a "round" shaped flying wing, with a flat tail section.
    Since the front end is a full lifting surface, and the tail is just control surfaces... it kinda makes sense, and the flying properties are probably very similar.

    Very cool!

    This looks like a lot of fun.

    I have been checking out a lot of the various threads on this forum, and I'm really getting into it. I'm still waiting for my Hawk Sky to arrive, and I'm already thinking about building a plane from scratch :D

    Actually the geobat flies more like an p-38 or Cessna Skymaster than an flying wing,its design gives it an main wing (first 50% of the wing) tail section(AKA last 50% of the plane)
