I guess one can streamline a brick, but at what point does one say it's a drop in a bucket?

newatlas.com: Hybrid drone aims for the best of both worlds

It's a bird, it's a plane ....no it's a plimp. You can compare the videos. This one, Egan Airships: The PLIMPô Invention implies it's an eight passenger/two crew vehicle; while Egan Airships PLIMP by Mike Kirsch confirms it's a drone.

While they call it a plane/blimp hybrid, I consider it a semi-rigid. Semirigilane doesn't roll off the tongue.

I usually see roof-mounted deflectors on box trucks, but I don't see side-mounted ones so often.

Yes, odd - but good.

Well, attractive, maybe, but it really needs a smooth curve from windshield to box-top, and the sides improved. If these fairings were done better, they would show up on the fuel bills much more convincingly.

A short while back in the forum, several of us expressed interest in cars that considered aerodynamics when airborne, perhaps more the subject of weight distribution on rally cars.

Found this today, not sure if those flipper fins on the front are for that or not, but my bountiful imagination wants to believe so.

It's got 40/60 weight distribution so I'm thinking yes. And with the cutaway wide body there may be an air curtain effect above them.

5mm aluminum belly pan. The exhaust is wrapped and the diffuser has a gold leaf finish to reflect the heat!
