Micro transport might contribute to metropolitan services for micro delivery. However, vehicle performance may determine the overall value of this idea. Vehicle design with safety, reliability and stability is studied. A new concept of winged-airship is proposed with an idea to adhere a pair of wings in the conventional airship to offer substantial lift, increase wind resistance, and create a natural stability under normal flight condition. Vehicle specifications are considered and designed, and prototype fabrication is implemented. With limited constraints, the design process for the winged-airship is carried out with feasibility analysis and numerical simulation, in order to establish a feasible solution for system fabrication. The experiment result is repeatedly examined by simulation result with modifications.
