It was quite a surprise to me that this legendary name is now used by an German general aviation manufacturer... And they actually do have a direct connection to Dr. Reimar Horten, the father of the flying wing. Check out "our history" at their home page ;)

Nice. Any idea what it cost?

Also very true (spanwise loading of flat items (Batteries) - as extracted from their website) :
The design of the airframe makes it easily adaptable for installing new propulsion technologies we anticipate will become available in the future.

Beautiful! Thank you VTOLicious for the post. Been a fan of flying wings for a long time. Such an efficient design cries out for battery power which is nice to see as being part of their future design brief.

That is a very attractive aircraft! Glad to see Prof. Horton's work acknowledged and carried on.
