Thread: Twion Electric Drive from Alber

    Twion Electric Drive from Alber

    http://www.twion.de/en/twion.html
    This looks great, especially black version. I wonder if Frank Mob will get them for USA. I'd want an iPhone app...

    eMotions are awesome but bulky/ugly dated looking, even compared to the old Deltaglide/iGlide.

    I wonder why it isn't geared toward quads (vs paras).

    Thoughts?

    These look to me to be significantly lighter, no? Aren't eMotions over 20 lbs each while these are 13 lbs each. At 13, they are getting more into the range of easily transferring into cars and vans. One concern I would want to check out however is the batteries. I did not see how they are replaced. Maybe it is easy, but sooner or later the batteries will have to be replaced and if the end user should be able to easily do it rather than having to send them somewhere.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Much lighter. The range seems lower, but still good. Good point on batteries--I'd like to know too. My m15 batteries lasted almost 4 years.

    Anyone figure out how to make the Twion power-off timeout longer than 15 minutes? I hate having to turn them back on all the time.
