The latest tests showed that we don’t get the expected power from the powerline necessary for takeoff. The airspeed still remains below the takeoff-speed. For trying to lift the baby off with these specifications we would need optimal weather conditions.
So right now we are concentrating on getting more power and further reducing the water-resistance. So currently we are checking several options. The lakes will soon be frozen in Finland but this naturally will not prevent us from going ahead. We will be able to optimize the settings for the powerline and continue testing in warmer climate then.
We will keep the delay as short as possible. Stay tuned!
