It Flies!!!

7.11.12: Well, yet again I have to apologize for the delay in updating. Since the last post, the gx200 reduction drive Eggmotor has had it’s first successful test flight. There have been some issues with the exhaust bracket failing but I’m hoping that is now sorted. Also, I have swapped the 1 litre gravity feed test tank to a pulse pump feed 5 litre tank.

Here is the footage taken from the first test flight back in late July 2012. Location is a Cloud Hoppers Club site near High Marnham, Nottinghamshire, England. I’ve roughly estimated climb rate to around 200fpm. Pilot weight of approx. 100kg with a ’27’ Windtech Kinetic non-reflex glider.
