We have made a lot of progress the last months. Design 14B flies very well, has much better low speed characteristics than the previous designs, and the stability of the aircraft is excellent now.
The design features we tested on Design 14B have led to new designs, and withing the next weeks we will build and test a new version, the Design 18C.
Besides that we have been busy building up the team for the Proof of Concept aircraft. A very important feature of an aircraft is the landing gear. That's why we have choosen Liebherr Aerospace to cover these aspects.

The SmartFish project will be supported by Liebherr Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH regarding the Landing Gear System in:
More news with more partners will follow soon.
Funding is still a big issue in our project. Building and producing an entirely new form of aircraft (and in our case selling the IP and design rights) requires imagination, courage and determination. Thats why we want to get your support for this visionary project. You can help us make Smart Fish happen. Don't miss the opportunity, since we have already some interesting discussions with potential investors and sponsors.
