- 2014 Sun-N-Fun
Had a great time at Sun-N-Fun 2014. We displayed at the LSA mall and flew at Paradise City almost every day. Hundreds of people stopped by to discuss electric flight. Thanks to Dan and Randy Johnson for inviting us to the LSA Mall. 130 hours flight time on the ULS now date of update April 10, 2014

Displayed at Sun-N-Fun 2013 in the Light Sport Area. We had a lot of fun meeting so many people with interest in Electric flight. The turnout was great and we flew the ULS in front of the crowds.
Introducing the ElectraFlyer-C!
We have converted my single place, all metal Moni motor glider into a small, efficient electric airplane. We used our ElectraFlyer propulsion parts kit and our large battery pack, custom built to fit the available space in the airplane. The plane was raised for more ground clearance and a larger, slower-turning, much more efficient prop was installed. Static thrust has increased 60%. The plane received its airworthiness certificate in April 2008 and and has been flying ever since— 125 hour flight time as of February 2013. The flying character of the plane has changed from a very loud, vibrating experience to a smooth quiet ride.
ElectraFlyer-C was the first real electric airplane in the world. It was designed and built as a prototype and proof of concept for economical electric flight.
