So right now we've got the basic shape complete. We've officially moved on to a tail-sitter VTOL aircraft. The drone will stand vertically for takeoff, and then will rotate in midair for horizontal flight. Since the drone only needs to carry a small payload in the center and house the electronics, we've opted for a blended wing design, however the sizing will likely update based on requirements for the internals. The CAD requires an addition of ailerons and propellers (with motors) for a complete CFD simulation. The internals will be made with circuit diagrams and an e-CAD, and after bounding boxes for those are made, the internal structure will be generated through simulations
