RExMoto is a modular motorcycle that attaches to an electric aircraft, providing additional flying time and a mode of transport to and from the airfield. The Range Extender consists of a 50kW electrical generator that feeds power to an electric aircraft, providing an added 2-3 hours extra flight time. It uses a Fluid Transfer Unit (or ‘jet pipe’) to efficiently burn aviation fuel to generate electricity.
The engine, generator, chassis and drive structure have all been specially designed to enable an optimum aerodynamic form, with the whole unit weighing less than 125kg. Retractable wheels used to save battery whilst taxiing, ensure that RExMoto can fit conveniently beneath the aircraft’s fuselage or under a wing whilst minimising drag in flight mode.
