Aerospace / Re: Iranian Qaher-313 "indigenous fighter jet"

Seeing as the standard of entrants for the next Iranian fighter is so high I thought I would add mine to the mix and I will not even charge for my services.  This new fighter is completely autonomous in all regards including a new technology engine that does not need inlets or exhaust.

As there is no need for a pilot there is no need for a computer, all they are good for is playing pong anyway and a pilot should keep their minds on the job rather than high scores.  Also note the new era aerodynamics which take already honed technology to new heights and especially if launched from a high building, sorry, I mean a launching pad, can achieve its terminal velocity without supplementary assistance.  capable of mach 19 when boosted by the eye-on engines which enable lights speeds approaching ouch velocity and only limited by the number first thought of powered by subtly enhanced fruit fuels allowed to mature in decently sized vats until ready for use.

Deny all alternatives, fly the new improved Br 13-S Series 1.  You know it makes sense, and good housing too.

I've seen better bricks.......... 😀

Hi I was trawling through the site and saw your request. One article which goes into the developement of the Exe, and also its derivatives, the Pennine and Snowdon can be found here: https://oldmachinepress.com/2012/11/23/rolls-royce-exe-boreas-and-pennine/

A little more detail: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/24/technology/flying-car-technology.html?_r=0

The brain dead and ridiculous FAA wants a pilot's license for the privilege of hovering a handful of feet over your local watering hole.

You are right. Those are toys and a new category with restricted altitude should be created given the many and invariable forms that distributed propulsion can take. Given that all of then will be fitted with an accelerometer, perhaps that borning an interval in the vertical readings should do the trick? (can't fly more than h0  + X   [m] ; h0 being a GPS reading for site elevation and x being the maximum authorized value in alt). Alternatively, recreation zones free of restriction could be quickly opened with on-site regulations.
