It also folds down to a size that fits a Lowes plastic storage box that has wheels.
How much does one weigh? Thanks

Part 103 Airplanes

There is a class of airplanes under FCC regulation 103. Interestingly the entire regulation fits on 9 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. A license is not required to fly these planes. The entire plane must weigh less than 254 lbs. The engine typically weighs 70 pounds leaving 184 pounds for everything else.

Truly amazing and interesting providing space for inventiveness.

They are limited to a top speed of 55 mph.

There are numerous example but here's one, plans are $19.

Norm, very interesting. Would really like to fly this thing. You had me right up to the part where you have to build it yourself. I can't even tract down a light fixture on my trailer that does not work. Don't think I will try to build and then fly an aeroplane...er...airplane.

If you go on youtube and search on affordaplane there are numerous regular people building these planes and even more people building planes like this under part 103 of the FAA regulations.

It's very impressive.

I have two ebikes. One is a fat tire Radmini and is a 2017 model. It has no suspension to cushion the rider. The battery style was changed the next year and the newer models get better battery mileage

"How far can you go on a battery charge?" is the most frequently asked question. The answer is, depends. Wind, road surface, road slope, your weight, the bike's design, and most importantly how much assist you use, all affect the distance per charge.

On the mini, I went 24 miles and was down to the last bit of power. Haven't tried that again.

A year ago, I splurged and bought a mid drive Bosch powered Gazelle dutch style bike. I haven't come close to running the battery down yet. My butt wears out before that happens. I've gone 37 miles on it and the display showed half the battery gone. On another day I rode it 9 miles up a steeply sloped road and used the same amount. I had to use the highest assist on that ride.

There are three classes of ebikes. Class 1 is a bike that has a maximum speed of 20 mph and no throttle. You must pedal to get anywhere. The motor will not help you go faster than 20 mph so like on an acoustic bike, you must either be going downhill or pedaling hard to exceed that speed. My Gazelle is this type of bike.

Class 2 is a bike limited to the same speed, 20 mph but in addition to the assist, it has a throttle. You do not have to pedal, you can use the throttle to go places. This is what my Radmini is. The throttle comes in handy when extra oooomph is needed quickly. One park ranger said he likes it because when he's riding with his kids and they are 15 miles out and his knees start acting up, he can quit pedaling and use the throttle to get back.

Class 3 is a bike with a speed limit of 28 mph and a throttle. In some European countries, these are not allowed on bike paths and must use the roads.
