This project started as a final thesis on aerospace engineering bachelor's degree. The objective was to create something that could be built with current technologies and promoted and motivated further development on electric vehicles.
Trasgo can achieve the same speed and manoeuvres as any internal combustion aerobatic aircraft. It aims at the aerobatics and competition sector for attractiveness and potential marketing use. Similar to how Formula 1 technology and advertising applies to normal cars.
This configuration mitigates the lack of power of current batteries by using several direct-drive propellers. This means extremely simple and cheap maintenance.
Propellers, motors, batteries and pilot are aligned with the line of flight to improve aerodynamics and manoeuvrability.
Visibility on the cabin is increased and there is no propeller at the front.
