    Farfle. You should do a detailed post about your experience for the electric area. Many people want to put an electric conversion on a draggy ultralight and trying to explain why it won't work very well is tedious work. Your example would be very helpful in getting electronistas to pick a slippery airframe.

    I think it’s commendable that you just keep plowing ahead. It should be a great plane with the Rotax and if you choose it looks like you or someone else can have a pretty complete electric airplane installation for another project.

    would be a great install for a powered launch glider.....often weight is not so much an issue with the ballast that is often carried.
