Motor glider | Retractable propeller

Just like landing gear is retractable on planes, the propellers might be retractable on awes, if they aren’t used for fine control of orientation / steering.

Ampyx Power AP-3 seems to have large foldable central propellers and tiny ones on the wingtips.

Didn’t upload it on purpose. Don’t have the rights. If you do, it’s on you… until Article 13 gets passed.


You can see the props on the CAD model
