Peter Sripol has successfully test flown his DIY foamie electric ultralight plane! Moving into dusk Peter made the first take off, getting airborne just above the runway then touching back down. Peter later stated the motors weren’t putting out maximum thrust due to the batteries and propeller size used. Since the first take off, Peter has recently completed a close in circuit pattern around the runway, further testing the plane’s airworthiness. Congratulations Peter!
