Alisport Silent 2 Electro

The Electro is technically a glider, however, it has an electric motor, and it can self-launch. The development team wouldn’t have to work on a tow system, and we still get an awesome gliding experience.

  • The airframe is mostly composed of carbon-fiber, and the wing features flaperons.
  • It has retractable main landing gear, with a purchasable steering option.
  • The nose-mounted propellor folds into the fuselage to reduce drag whilst gliding.
  • The engine can be started at any time during the flight, easily.
  • VERY easy to navigate the cockpit.

Overall, I think that this could be a great option for future consideration by the devs. We don’t have gliders yet, and I think this could be a great way to get into them without the extra work. What do you think?

Finally, a glider request 😍

I would absolutely love to see gliders in Infinite Flight! I think they’re so fun to fly irl, sometimes even better than powered aircraft! Will try free a vote for it

Cool but how would it work? To immediately call in a tow plane?

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

Let’s make it a goal to reach 10 votes by the end of the week. 😃

Just cleared a vote!

I think that we do need gliders in IF, and with this one being able to self launch, I think it would be perfect to start with!
