Was it an Apis? They have an electric option. Look here and then on
the left
side for Electric systems.

There are two Antares 20E in Florida (we flew together last week), but it wasn't one of these at Sebring. I'm curious too !
See ya, Dave "YO electric"
PS: There will be three Antares 20Es competing at the Seniors. Hope to get a formation photo !

Was it the Silent2? This is a really cool electric sailplane with a very innovative FES (Front Electric Sustainer) system. Far less moving parts and complexity than traditional boom mounted motor gliders.

The Antares is an amazing machine in virtually every way, but its also expensive and fairly full on (250k+).

The Silent is well under 100k new, I think...

Hope you find what your looking for.

Also Lak 17, for which the FES (Front Electric Sustainer) system was
first developed. Now can be ordered from factory in sustainer version;
self launcher being developed (prototype has flown; video etc. on LZ
design website: http://www.front-electric-sustainer.com/index.php )

There should be one at the convention to look at. If I win the
lottery, I'm getting one.

By the way, if anyone wants a copy of a paper I did on my FES, send me
an email to which I can reply with an attachment.
