I agree.Compare the Darkaero 1 specs to a Legacy (just to pick a similar airframe, We/Wo, cruise speed) and I think you will find that something doesn't add up (power required at similar weight for similar cruise). It will need to top the Legacy's L/D by quite a bit to achieve that performance. I will look forward to seeing them fly, and will congratulate them if the achieve what they are claiming.
Last year, after spending the first night stuck in the middle of the road, we got towed to a spot that turned out to be perfect. We were along the road where the ultralight, gyroplanes and powered parachutes flew by. Every morning and evening we got that treat.I set up camp today. For the first time in 11 years, I wasn’t able to find a spot where I’ve been forever. The campground was absolute full from “improved camping” all the way to the fence. Not a square inch to be found. I ended up setting up camp in what could very well be Fon du Lac. It’s become a popular destination, it seems!
I am parked beneath (beside) the ultralight safety zone, so it’ll be fun to watch those cool critters flying overhead all day.
I’m going to have to start hiking by 0600 to get to morning coffee with the crew on time.
