Reto Meyer shows us his Elvira:
He has installed a removable fuselage nose. By this means he can fly Elvira both as a glider or
as an electric version. He has equipped the model with a 600 Kontronik - 22, a 18,5x13 propeller
and 6S 4250 batteries (instead of lead). Elvira launches with a push of 9kg nearly out of the hand.
Further interesting installation solutions:
Dual power supply with two Lipos 2600 and a fixed clutch servo.

Here some pictures of the "Making of":
