The emergency battery provides power to the AI and flood light, but what about the engines? It's an all electrical airplane, but I couldn't find more information about this in the POH.
I'd certainly hope that the word WARNING is included somewhere on the "loss of all generators" procedure that details this "feature."GENIUS! I guess it would be terribly difficult to have mounted a small PMG for the engine to power itself...
A 30 min battery is a much better idea.
I much prefer the landing characteristics of an unpowered helo over that of an unpowered Diamond.Still, I much prefer the glide ratio of an unpowered Diamond over that of an unpowered helo.
I never flew the Thielerts so I wouldn't knowThat's new with the Lycoming engines...the idle on the Thielert motors was set high enough that the thing would float considerably even at idle.
I've never feathered both props in flight...but I'm sure it would increase the glide distance.Surely the glide is much more reasonable with props feathered than just idle, isn't it?
