Hmm... I wonder what an approved modification to the battery pack or its installation consists of?

Wondered that too, as the only option listed is to remove the batteries.
Further down the AD are links to manufacturers websites which will hopefully have details.

I'm guessing that there is no approved modification yet, and that they wrote the AD that they wrote the AD that way so they won't have to reissue it when the approve one. Perhaps the only way to comply for now is to remove the battery?

Ow Owww OOooowwww...
I hate it when my glider catches fire.
Hasn't happened for a while, last time was in 2008, but it was only a small fire..

Anybody have any more *facts* about the event that inspired this AD?

nteresting they don't mention the Silent 2 FES, the Mini LAK or the Ventus 3 FES.

BTW I ordered a D2C FES a year ago with delivery in Nov 18. Little bit jittery. Wonder if I can install pedals

They are not EASA certified at the moment?

What battery chemistry are they using? LiPos?
