DECREASING DRAG PAYS OFF – February 10, 2020

Today we continued our Switchblade acceleration testing, with the engine powering just the propeller. With the doors, top hatch and engine bay access covers on, we did an acceleration run that broke 75 mph, before we exited the runway. Sean Bliss was the driver and Sam Bousfield was Pilot in Control (PIC), manning radios and watching the gauges.

Cleaning up the drag by mounting doors and top hatch really made a difference, so now we are going to switch to the final propeller blades and run it again.
