|Electric motors with two large propellors wil be fixed on a one inch aluminum tube with wires going back to ESC, Reciever and LIPO bat(s) for propulsion. It is very easy integrate and experiment. The is no need for moving the motors to control Ultralight. VTOLs ob youtube will rotate the motors from take off to flying for high speeds. This aircraft only flys at 20MPH-25MPH and motors will only be used when I'm in it to gain altitude. Then I will glide down to land and use Motors to slow to land vertically so I won't have to run 18 MPH to land. I will land like a Helicopter or Quadcopter/Drone.|
I visited John Moody in Milwakee and copied ideas from his Powered Icarus II and created a motor mount for a MAC 101 GoCart engine with a straight drive 24" propeller making my Icarus V a foot launched hang glider or Foot Launched Ultralight,predacessor the the Vintage Ultralights and Modern Day Microlights. Note: I started flying R/C models in 1964.
Photo of my MAC 101 GoCart engine and 24" wooden propellor. Notice propulsion was full speed or no speed using a kill switch in my mouth.This photo was taken in the 1970s when very few of us had a motorized hangliders. I remember Boris Popov who sold me my standard 18' rogallo hanglider had a hangar for ultralights with seats for comfort and and wheels for take off and landings, mostly Quick Silvres.a few miles from my airport in Lake Elmo which led to the dawn of the modern day Ultralight.
