this is an old video from 2018. here i had a standard propeller (e props 751) and needed around 3.4 kw for the level flight. 85 kg pilot, wing 26 m2. (total mass 120 kg) the static thrust is 3.4 kilowatts at around 21 kilograms. today i fly with my impress 3 setup with around 3 to 3.1 klilowatt in the level which is then around 18 kg static thrust. With standard e-ppg around 4.2 to 4.5 kilowatts are necessary. all the values apply to optimized concepts (esc + motor) for 14 - 15 s batteries. many think a high-performance wing would bring much more performance. yes, that’s only true in one point. you have more kilometers because you can fly faster with the same electrical performance. the sink is pretty much the same whether EN-B or EN-C. you just fly about 10 to 15% more kilometers in the route. the more power you use when climbing, the more inefficient the whole thing becomes. A paraglider loses performance due to the angle of attack as a braking effect is created. therefore glide and performance calculations of normal aircraft are not correct here with e-ppg.
From minute 19 onwards you can see how consumption is with a standard e-ppg concept. here it is a rotex motor Rex 30/4
