Electro-self-launching sailplane by clement
The AE-1 is a self-launching sailplane. The innovation is that the thrust is given by electric motor! http://www.airenergy.de/silent/index.htm I think that it is the first battery-powered glider with retractable propeller but I am not sure. Have you already see this kind of propulsion ? Do you...
