ElectaFlyer has converted a single place, all metal Moni motor glider into a small, efficient electric airplane. They used their ElectraFlyer propulsion parts kit their large battery pack, (Lithium Ion) custom built to fit the available space in the airplane. The plane was raised for more ground clearance and a larger, slower-turning, much more efficient prop was installed. Static thrust has increased 60%. The plane received its airworthiness certificate in April. The ElectraFlyer-C is flying now and the climb rate has increased dramatically. The flying character of the plane has changed from a very loud, vibrating experience to a smooth quiet ride.
Systematic flight testing has stared and ElectraFlyer plans to display their aircraft at this years Air Venture in July, 28th.
