“FES”: an electric nose drive to start on your own landing gear.
No starting bungee or starting car is required and the small propeller fits neatly against the fuselage. The name “FES” (Front Electric Selflaunch / Sustainer) has established itself internationally for this type of drive. Of course, Hacker Motor also offers some drive combinations for this. Usually large sailplanes with a wingspan of 13-16 ft. (4 – 5m) and larger are equipped with these drives.
Large glider models that weigh up to 99 lbs. (45kg) can fly with the A60-L Glider series.
Many of these motors can also be used with the FesEx Uni 8 system.
