Electric- and Solaraircraft Elektra One Solar

Elektra One Solar

Solar cells on the wing surface provide about the half of the energy for flying. But not only this is new. Our Elektra One Solar is a further development of our Electric Aircraft Elektra One – with completely new wings (a new wing profile and a longer span). The complete structure, including flight controls, is built in carbon composite materials.

Description:

  • solar cells on the wing surface
  • 6 square meter solar cells on the wing surface provide more than 1 kW power for flying 
  • high energy density Li-Ion-batteries provide the rest of the energy
  • the Elektra One Solar can fly with 2.5 kW power (in horizontal flight)
  • less aerodynamic drag using a new laminar wing profile 
  • longer span: 
  • 11 meter wing span instead of 8.6 Meter (Elektra One) guarantees a best glide ratio of 30
  • higher aspect ratio 
  • weight reduction by 100 % carbon construction
► Fly with the sun!
