A new upgrade for this gliding season. I have installed electrical Bugwipers from Laminar Aerotec (former BWS Parker and Storka) on my Silent 2 Electro Glider.
During long thermal flights bugs are smashed on the leading edge of gliders, causing small turbulences. These lead to increased drag and a worse glide ratio.
The bugwipers are designed to peel the remains of the bugs off, to have a clean leading edge again. So that the full performance of the Glider is re-established.
This is a short video of the first testrun. Looking forward to test them in the next cross-country flight 😀
