|Example of the InView climb rate||- InView Climb Out|
Above: the InView executing a steep climb during a recent test flight.
Since the InView can fly on one of its two engines, it has sufficient power to perform a steep climb, should the situation require it, as it did during a recent test flight.
The lift flap in the retracted position. Here we see the side of the central wing section, to better show the lift flap, before the outer wing section has been attached.
The high lift flaps behind each powerful wing mounted engine, shown above, ensure:
Above: during a recent flight test, the InView came in to land, flaps down, but was flying too quickly and the pilot needed to fly around and land more slowly. A steep climb was needed to miss some nearby trees.
Above: first, the low engine speed, more suitable to a landing, was increased.
Above: the InView picks up speed and starts to climb.
Above: the nearby trees come into sight.
Above: we go for a gap between the trees.
Above: now for the steep climb: elevator up and flaps down, engines at full power.
Above: the start of the climb.
Awesome. That's 20 kg weight of aircraft powered by two SAITO FG-30 engines with a total output power of 3.6 kWatts.
Above: an impressive climb, followed by flaps up, a short circle and a slower landing.
