You don't want to dance with ugly girl?I am personally not against simple electric airplane/glider like
Elfy (electric LAK-16)
EMG-6 (Hangar 7 Rainbow Aviation EMG-6 Electric Motor Glider) or
ZIGOLO (Electric – Aeromarine-LSA)
I would just like to see a bit more efficient design + a bit higher performance
-Bogdan was disclassified ICMotor (32 HP) and change them into BLDC 20280I would just like to see a bit more efficient design + a bit higher performance
=todays battery weight and price is hard to accept,=ACCUs in place of 40-liter tank.
My opinion - keep it simple=todays battery weight and price is hard to accept,
after some tests and replacing 20280 (KV=25/80) to the high RPM BLDC (no need in belt multiplicator) we are thinking about simple DC Range Extender,
based on good Power/Weight 2T ICM...
=we hope soon, todays winter is calm...My opinion - keep it simple
For first test flights install only electric propulsion or only IC motor. You have aerodynamically good design (expected L/D 25:1) so no need of high power.
When you expect to make a first flight?
Hello!ICE MOTORGLIDER powertrain conversion to ELECTRIC?????
Help.... I am going into uncharted territory but maybe not for a lot of you guys. I will find a good A&P. I.E. can a used Phoenix glider with and ICE be converted to an electric???. I like the idea of utilizing all of the components taken out of a zero motorcycle(time-tested components that are properly matched and this maneuver has been done many times by other airplane builders). Does changing the powertrain affect the fact that it is a registered self launching motor glider. Is approval needed for this type of maneuver. When flying solo... Most of the time... I would like to have welded a special holder for the second seat to hold an additional battery to plug into a for powered flight time extension(the useful load would allow for this extra weight). Thank you for your help!
