Beta Technologies eVTOL Air Text Prototype
Very interesting, thanks for posting.
How would you get an organ (Wurlitzer, Hammond, etc.) into that?
I wonder who has more range: these guys or a Tesla?
An update on Beta Technologies EVTOL. They learned a bunch from the airplane in the OP. They've re-thought their approach. An interview by Wired's Eric Adams on their next gen prototype. This is interesting!
That's not an organ transport plane, THIS is an organ transport plane:
Ah, the good ole piano ad from Piper many years ago. Still remember that from Flying Magazine.
Raptor guy.... Take some notes
I’m thinking it isn’t allowed in STOL competitions.
It's a eVTOL aircraft, extolled for it's VERTICAL takeoff and landing capabilities, yet it took off conventionally in more distance than many existing (and ancient) GA aircraft. Color me confused.
It's likely they're doing initial flight tests on the wing alone as buildup before using the rotors. Not at all unusual if you have the capability.
who is used to the 'build up, break down' school of flight test
Did you actually listen to the interview? Their approach seems logical and methodical based on what they learned from their tilt-rotor.
They're doing a very thorough and well thought out flight test program. Hence my comment on raptor guy taking notes. How they're going about testing is impressive
Color me guilty. I was multitasking and may not have paid as much attention as I should have.
