Worlds first EBever plane ready to fly

Harbour Air, a Canadian sea plane operation based in Vancouver has relieved the worlds first electric beaver. Harbour Air and MagniX will unveil the world’s first eBeaver seaplane retrofitted with a 750 horsepower all-electric Magni500 propulsion system for the inaugural test flight on Wednesday, December 11.

This emblematic day was chosen in 1903 on this day the Wright Brothers flew on a motorized aircraft for the first time in the world. Based on the permitting issued by Transport Canada, this flight test is weather-dependent, as such timing of the flight is subject to change. A hope that the eBeaver’s inaugural test flight will definitely take place in December.

Its pretty common. There is weight and wheels at the front of the truck (under the plane), so there is no need for the bed. Y go the extra mile and cut it off? im not sure. Probably for storage/making sharp turns. @BadPlane

But it has two wheels but unlike a motorbike they are the other way so how would the weight not be a problem?
