How Glowfly does hybrid for the Jet Age - by Dan Johnson

...................."There was a need, to get launched without having to rely on a towplane or a winch, so hybrid technology serves a really useful purpose in gliders. Power up, launch, then stow the motor and hit the thermals. Glowfly does the same thing, just in a very different way...................By itself, the little AMT turbine would result in a ridiculously long takeoff run and it would burn too much fuel for too little action.  Enter an electric motor to drive dual main gear wheels. The side-by-side wheels allow wings-level taxiing. That’s good for getting to the end of the runway for launch. Then the magic really happens".................................read on.
