Falcon is a concept design for a solar-powered aircraft, capable of fliging with zero emission thanks to its large wing area.
The design by Laszlo Nemeth breaks with conventional aircraft design and uses the advantage of flying wings.
The streamlined shape was suggested by the body of the birds of prey. The shape is unique in that the fuselage also generates significant lift while providing a surface for the solar panels.
Even nowadays, nature’s iteration of shapes can be a good inspiration for design and help development with almost perfectly harmonious proportions such as golden ratio.
