Guys, I have been in touch with Austin Marhold last night. I don't know him personally, but I have seen his name mentioned multiple times over the last few years. I was a bit intrigued by the videos I have seen on the pulseglider. I reached out to him and he has agreed to answer some questions about his project. He will record the answers so I can use them as a collaboration video for my youtube channel.
Instead of me thinking up questions alone - I might include some of your input as well.
So what do you want to know about the pulseglider? I can come up with these for a start
What the story behind the pulse glider?
Who is Austin Marhold?
What is the secret to getting this kind of range/performance with a 9kg wheel
What made you choose a 12" wheel? Would 16/18 inch be better?
What is the idea behind the "top" heavy design and how does it help economics
