Turbo Timber Sailplane

I removed the landing gear on my TT to compare power off glide performance and was amazed at the difference both at high and low speed. With a folding prop and ESC programmed for brake there is no windmilling drag and no risk of prop damage during grass belly landings. My favorite foamy motorglider is the Multiplex Heron and it outperforms the TT. This mod is a compromise but can be usefull when soaring over hills or treelines or when landing on soft sand .
