A very interesting video from the Vertical Flight Society.
So I was initially thinking about 2 rotors like this for Sentach except running port / starboard rather than fore and aft. The thing is that the application is different. I’d like to take Sentach out to 300ish knots for small payloads and get 1000km range. Smaller payloads require a smaller vehicle. Thus we can stay with the wing model and use VTOL not for hovering so much as just punching off the ground and not needing a runway.
Roughing out a feasible delivery drone.
The above pdf is a very rough estimation of a delivery drone capable of an 8km return flight (16km one way) with a 4kg payload.

Nice work Tom.
Thanks for the link Sherv.
