TAXIING OFF RUNWAY AFTER REACHING TAKE-OFF SPEEDS! – April 19, 2022


Here is the Switchblade Flying Sports Car taxiing off the runway after reaching take-off speed on an acceleration run! Our second day of high speed taxi testing was just as exciting as the first. We validated aileron effectiveness (banks aircraft left or right) at take-off speeds, which were two very important milestones! We also validated excellent braking efficiency at high speeds, as well as slalom testing to check out how the vehicle would handle if an urgent correction after touchdown was needed.

All was as expected, so we are going to make a few adjustments to the vehicle and see if we can improve our results, then move on to further taxi testing. We are using prop power only for these tests.
