F5L motorgliders


Here a picture of a Pures (V-tail) and a Slite (white fuselage). Both built from commercial kits and equipped with a Hacker A10-7l brushless reducted motor. A 3S 500 mAh battery gives plenty of autonomy and a 12x10 folding propeller a nice pull (bench tested at 550 g for 115 W). All-up weight around 500 g.
