  • Publication number: 20190112042
    Abstract: A VTOL aircraft has a substantially delta-shaped lifting body fuselage with airfoils disposed along all three sides. In vertical flight mode the airfoils act as exhaust diverters. A flow of exhaust gas flows from a centrally located vertical flight gas diffuser over the top surface of the lifting body and then is directed downward by the airfoils to provide vertical lift. In vertical flight mode, the entirety of the exhaust from the engine is diverted to the vertical flight gas diffuser by means of a transition duct that diverts the flow of gas through a 90° upward bend into the vertical flight gas diffuser. In horizontal flight mode the transition duct is fully retracted to permits the entirety of the engine thrust to be directed rearward to propel the aircraft in a horizontal flight mode.

  • Patent number: 9975580
    Abstract: A vehicle body assembly may include a header, a roof rail, and a gusset component. The header may define a lateral axis extending across a vehicle body. The roof rail may define a longitudinal axis extending fore/aft along the vehicle body. The gusset component is for securing the header and roof rail to one another and includes an edge extending diagonally between the header and the roof rail to reinforce a vehicle body corner joint. The edge may extend diagonally from the header to the roof rail at an angle between thirty and sixty degrees relative to the lateral axis and the longitudinal axis. The edge may define an edge axis oriented at substantially forty-five degrees relative to the lateral axis.

  • Publication number: 20170001120
    Abstract: A method and system is disclosed for operating a fantasy sports league independent of actual game-based time keeping or actual game-based segmenting such as innings, quarters, periods, halves, etc. The method includes storing, in a computer database, statistical performance data for a set of real-world athletes, time-stamping each statistic or player performance metric at a time the statistic or player performance metric was monitored, defining qualifying statistics and player performance metrics for accrual into a fantasy sports point system based upon the time-stamp associated with the statistic and player performance metric, and scoring the fantasy league based upon a user defined time range.
