I am very interested in e-ppg flying and Voltair looks great.
I like the idea of mounting only 2 batteries for total lightweight and to take off from a hill and to use in free-flight, and just in case I need some extra power ( low wind ) to keep flight level to reach a desired landing field.
But the cage, and the propellers produce a very big drag in flight, so I was asking myself; What if I fly without the cage and folding props? That would propably reduce the drag a lot and help for better flight performance.
I don’t think the cage is necesary for protection during take off because you only turn power on when the wing is on top of you already inflated, and during flight the same. And when landing, if you turn power off just before touching the ground no problem with lines either…
What do you guys think?
