I'm building an electrically powered paraglider, and I'm trying to reach one hour of flight time. I've resolved to using 2 18-kilowatt motors. I could use one 35-kilowatt motor, but I'd wrather not kick out my spine on a hard start.
Anyway, with 6 x 504Wh packs, I'd get 6 minutes at full throttle.
But powered paragliders don't use full throttle the whole time. How can i calculate aproximate flight time from time that i can have full throttle?
You can assume that my glider has a forward rate of 9:2, and a climb rate of 9:4.
