I like the Slingsby T45, it appears to be a relative good first build
Does anybody know of anyone who has put an electric motor with folding prop in one ??? can it be done ???
I know electric motor is a swear word but my options are limited with regard to getting the glider aloft as they say
I have also considered the recent 3.4m Petrel that Chris Williams has done, Sarik have just introduced the wood pack for it

Yes it's easy!!
For 3.5m span your looking at a 46 sized brushless, 4 cells and 700watts power if the weight is kept to 10 llbs or less.
Try the xp power range of motors from top model. They have extended shafts and bearings to aid fitting.
