Thanks Ron, that is some interesting stuff. I have wondered since getting into this hobby recently and learning about brushless motors and outrunners how the application could apply to small scale or ultra-light aircraft. Nice to see it moving forward. Now if the price of Lithium-Polymer batteries would come down dramatically we could all have that personal aircraft in every garage envisioned so long ago.

That's a giant diameter on the brushless... where did he get the stator from?
It looks like one of those direct drive washing machine setups almost.

Heehe we need a DIY Kit, large stator. Then you could use the motor on whatever hits your fancy. I would most likely use mine on something cheap and simple with car batteries like a air boat or go cart to start with. On You Tube there is a vid of a guy with a hang glider trike taking off with 4 12v lead acid batteries very heavy solution but cheaper then lipo's.

... this giant brushless motor is not from a washing machine. It was designed and built especially for E-Para usage by Werner Eck! Itīs weight is only about 3.75kg with a estimated sustained(!) power of about 12KW at only 2.000 rpm!

I love the modern world of Brushless and LiPo magic,

BUT for anything you want to fly longer than 3 minutes (20C !) you still need good old fossil fuel stinky tech. There are also some amasing things being done with cheap automotive turbocharges that could get a hundred horsepower to that fan on your back, and carry an hour's worth of fuel!

Well if the aircraft doesn't have much drag it could fly for over an hour. The human powered MIT Daedalus plane had a big (31 meter long carbon wing) and flew for around 4 hours powered by a human generating I believe around 300 watts. They could have used a little Speed 400 motor instead!

... remember the first flight with combustion engine was just a few 100 meters of distance!

With that new electric drive it is possible to reach about 1200m of altitude (above ground) incl. starting from plain area! ... done with an ATOS by Toni Roth:

... and that is just the beginning!

... turbochargers? ... imagine the size&weight&noise of an 100:1 gear for that power level ... but OK for "rocketman" - will fly even without a parachute

General Motors has announced they will be selling electric cars with Li batteries which means soon after there will be battery packs available in the junk yards from wrecked cars. Already there are battery packs from Toyota's, the price range is from $1000 down to $250. Since they have a short shelf life (6 months) I would say $1000 is way too high. Also the controller modules are full of high voltage, high current devices.
In ten years this stuff will be common and cheap, go to a junk yard and buy it for scrap.
