    Hello everyone, new here.
    I want to share the results of our testing of a prototype electric propulsion unit for light aviation with a power of 80-100 hp.
    Our tests showed that the 190 kg thrust that we get from our electric setup is enough for the aircraft takeoff and ascent.
    Since we're new to electric aircraft in general, I'm curious to hear some thoughts about our tests from people who have more experience in this area.

    Looks promising.

    Is the battery pack stacked behind the propeller impacting the thrust measurements?

    In theory, no. Maybe just a little.
