Smile Jet Glider 250kph level cruise

Climb rate 2M/s at 170Kph, some serious power.
Sub 10 sec starts, even at altitude. This was a first test at altitude.

Yes, but then there is a extensive certification process when doing powered takeoffs, like any other aircraft...

Lab test of engine used in Video.
There is no GSU. Any Web enabled device (iPhone, Android, Laptop or Tablet can be used.
The ECU has a build in display for vital info within the air-frame. When running RPM EGT etc is displayed.

This begs the question, when does a glider stop being a glider 😀
