The prop looks feathered.

Therefore is it a motor glider perhaps electrically powered?

You don't see the prop. What you might see is the right-hand wing tip.

Electric may be one option, though…..

Sure it is the Pipistrel Panthera, the guys are selling it short (deliveries start 2012 for petrol engine version, the hybrid and electric to be expected in 2013).

Over to you

PS. The background colour was the original one in the picture.

Thanks Reg.

Sounds like another Photoshop tutorial.

This one is very easy and I expect skytrain to get it within five minutes....



edit: going out for 15-20 minutes.
