Discus-5cBES

This is a fictional aircraft, I’ve no knowledge regarding to gliders so please don’t judge me if you’re a glider pilot. *cough *cough

Thanks to the perfect control balance and the harmonic gliding characteristics, you'll feel comfortable and relaxed the first moment you'll fly a Discus-5cBES. With a set of contra-rotating propellers powering it, the electrical BESv2 (Back Electric Sustainer) system built by LZ Design establishes the Discus-5cBES to have an option for an innovative, environment-friendly sustainer system that is very different from all former systems.

The reliable and lighting-fast starting and stopping of the engine with any noticeable additional drag allows to spontaneously use the electrical engine, which opens completely new perspectives. The powered flight is perceived in a very new way and can be enjoyed by puristic glider pilots.

With 17.3 metres wing span and more than 2.3 additional metres of wing area compared to the Standard Class version, the Discus-5cBES can be flown at very low wing loads and above-average climbing performance, despite the slightly higher empty weight due to the BESv2 system.

Operation is extremely simple: Just toggle a switch and adjust the engine power with a rotary switch. This is all it take to gain height at almost no vibration and minimal engine noise. Operating mistakes are practically impossible and the pilot's attention remains available for other flight decisions.


My realisation after writing all this:

    For all the people who say gliders don’t have engines... (@nomalnormaltheman @Sammida ) Some gliders do, some don’t. We don’t have any on our airfield I think , but they do exist. This one is a TMG or tourist motor glider the difference between TMG and MG is that MG has retractable engines. According to my student book gliders CAN have motors, but they are considered gliders AS LONG AS THEY HAVE AERODYNAMIC CONSTRUCTION SIMILAR TO GLIDERS. So yes, this is a glider. @Kennneth Yes you got it pretty accurately, good job.
