Farrar Flying Wing V-1

Designed by D.F. Farrar Jr, the V-1 is a scaled down version of the bomber and transport flying wing prototypes which were produced by Northrop near and shortly after the end of World War II. It differs from these by the addition of a vertical tail surface. Control of both pitch and roll is accomplished by rotating wingtips which make up 0.61 m. / 2 ft. of the span. The pilot is located in a prone position within the wing root.
