Video of Belite Aircraft test hop

Below is a link to a Belite aircraft test hop.

The engine installed generates 23hp, but the prop is mispitched in this test, so the engine probably developed about 16hp. (Plus the density altitude was 4500 feet.)

After takeoff, the plane established positive climb and I chopped power shortly thereafter.

We’ll expand the test flight envelope later this week.

The big rollout is tomorrow.

  1. Outstanding. I'm looking forward to seeing the shipping product; really want to keep flying.Oh, and I liked (and used) both Newer Tech and WeibeTech products over the past few years. Good stuff, I expect the new ultralight will be the same.
