Light Urban Aircraft Design

  • Status: Open
  • Prize: $220
  • Entries Received: 18

Contest Brief

Hello,
This is a contest in which you will have to draw / design the future light urban aircraft. In other words, it has to be a flying object for one person (max 2) that should look like a futuristic /” alien” like flying object.

Before starting the work please take care of the followings:
1. Has to be light
2. Has to be rather small
3. VTOL like
4. Futuristic design
Apart of that, there is nothing more than your imagination for what the future urban mobility will look alike.

Please consider that this is a small part of a larger program that will end up with an actual flying product. So, if your work will be chosen as the final design, then we will further collaborate on the project.

Deliverables:

THIS HAS TO BE A UNIQUE DESIGN.
SO PLEASE, DO NOT COPY OTHER EXISTING DESIGNS.

If you work on a 3D program you will have to provide an IGS or STP file of your design, otherwise you will have to upload a detailed drawing with FRONT, LATERAL, TOP and ISOMETRIC views of your final work.

Thank you and good luck.

      David, I need the right concept that can be done in less than an hour, and not thousands of hours of design with beautiful rendering.

    Understood! May you clarify also if this is a public mean of transportation or private? The question may sound weird, but my approach to the design would be different depending on that ;)

    Another question: public or private transportation?

      Private, but it doesn't matter that much. What's important is that it has to be a compact VTOL designed for 1 person (2 max).

    Hi! Very interesting contest you have here, i'd like to give a try! Considering the premises in your description i have a few questions, tho. It's easy to end up in science fiction-y ideas here. So: would the aircraft need to have plausible, contemporary means of propulsion (rotors, turbines and the like) or can it be not-yet-so-well-developed ones like mag levitation? Or go full scifi and imagine an anti-grav vehicle. This is just to scratch of some of the ideas i have already put down on paper. Thanks in advance for the clarifications!

      Hi Fabio. You can go SciFi if you want to, but a feasible one, or at least something that can lead to a feasible thing. I would like to see smth that has contemporary means of propultion, but you're free to imagine smth else if you feel like. However, keep in mind that we're still "working" with air.

      Hi Salman. It has to be a unique design. Yours seems copied from something that already exists.

      Hello. There are still 5 days to go. I will extend it if necessary, but that's something I wouldn't like to do. Anyways, if you can't finalise the drawing in 5 days I would recommend you to, at least, add a draft of your idea. Thanks.

    Dear CH, please #increaseprize. if you need just concept design of the aircraft it would be ok, but you asking for a 3D file and STP format export. So please #increaseprize. Thanks

      I said that if you re working directly on a software you should provide igs, but if you draw your concept on a paper that works fine too.

      Igs, stp aren't mandatory.
