Lange Aviation - Electric Airplane Manufacturer.
Lightweight environmentally friendly batteries with high performance, a brushless 42 kW external rotor electric motor, new power electronics and a large slowly rotating propeller were developed into one system and tailored especially for the Antares 20E into an optimized configuration. For the first time, a complete propulsion system has been developed exclusively for one motorglider. The results are convincing: The Antares 20E combines a high climb rate (approx. 4.4 m/s / 866 ft/min during takeoff) with a very high attainable climb altitude (approximately 3000 m / 9850 ft in calm air) and very low noise emission.
