Another electric motor glider

Post by craneplaneguy » Dec 28, 2017 10:13 am

This time by an outfit with an established track record of making flying machines, only with ICE engines, so all they really had to do was mess with the propulsion system. With a 9,000' west facing ridge literally in my backyard, and being an old hang glider pilot, with a large solar system (plenty of excess free electricity) I should have one of these. Thing is, I can already use the plane I fly now to dead stick ridge soar once I'm up there, so not much incentive as long is gas is "cheap." I had a three hour flight a few years back, that used less then 1/4 gallon. Anyway, a neat ultralight!http://aeromarine-lsa.com/merlin-psa/
