    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    Just enjoying flying in spring time ;)

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    I agree - most of old gliders and old cars are beautifull. But I also thing that "air particles" can feel if they are fluently going arround something nice :) Design is a very subjective category... Celera seems to be interesting project. Is just not mine "cup of coffee". I do a sport and...

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    But airplane also should look nice and pilot (ideally also passengers) should have a nice view :-)

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    I am not sure if you need 4 students aboard for training. For some lessons could be probably usefull (navigation?), but generally weight = energy consumption. 3 studends sitting on rear seats = at least + 200 kg (realistically +250 kg). The reason why I mentionned this project is configuration...

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    Fixed wing, 5 seats.... Of course so far is still jut a nice render, but at least seems that they understand that electric airplane must be efficient :-) https://www.electronaviation.com/#about

    Hello! I find only few informations (see attached files). Especially electric version was really interesting for me :) Where you are from? Best regards! Martin

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    Yesterday I did nice sightseeing flight :-) I saw "cloud ocean islands" I also saw how the low coulds are "factory produced" Active "volcano" And "semifrozen lake"

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    Yes, with 17 m wig extensions we expect to get to 1:33 or better. The high power electricity really seems to be a problem in US. But 240 V / 40 Amps = +-9,6 kW and that is not so bad. I agree that solar panels on the wings are actually not really a way. Energy you get is low in compare with...

    Electric Hybrid

    3-metre long and 95kg drone is not a toy anymore.... They are really lucky that nobody was injured. https://www.flyer.co.uk/aaib-report-slams-caa-and-airspeeder-after-demo-drone-crash/

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    Hi! Well.... I summary my experience. Motor is designed for 80 kW be we limited max, power to 60 kW because Phoenix really doesn´t need more (maybe except aerotowing). Battery has nominal Voltage 345 V. Max. voltage 398 V. For TakeOff I need +-160 Amps, for 30 kW climb I need +-80 Amps and for...

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    "Parallax" using 3 layers.... Interesting to learn something new :)

    Electric Hybrid

    Well... exciting will be probably year 2024 ;) But true is that 820 million USD from investors and 500 employees is impressive. I wonder what will be price for one unit if will be used for affordable air taxi service...

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    I had a bit of time so I was learning how to use parallax effect on photos :-)

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    My airfield looks different :) Airfield LKUO Airfield LKVM (18 km +-west from LKUO, same day) So actually we do more cross-country skiing instead of flying :-)

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    I am waiting for better weather :) The photo from hangar is not done by me - it is from Croisiair (Pyrenees). Phoenix on photo is equipped with 100 hp Rotax :)

    I started with shorter distances with our electric Phoenix :-) However not populated, rocky and snowy areas are my favorite :-)

    Electric Hybrid

    The first thing you need to ask yourself is what the aim of the electric planes is? I really like this question... Sport flying? Aeroclub flying? Fun flying? All this categories are ready for electric propulsion. Long cruise distance required? Large general aviation airplanes? Sorry, but at...

    Electric Hybrid

    I agree that aviation also have to try to decrease emisions. Just... I am not sure about the CO2 tax. Can be only my subjective feeling but uder word "tax" I see increased costs for final user, but no control if money collected on that tax were used for something really helpfull. Same situation...

    Electric Hybrid

    The info about max. cont. power of electric motor (usually much lower than max. power you can find in specification) is not mentionned because is some "advantage". It shows that you have to be really carefull when looking for electric propulsion system for your project. Pilot flying with Rotax...
