Launching gliders with a Tesla Model X from teslamotors

Turns out you can launch a glider into the air with a Tesla Model X, but was there ever any doubt?

The video quality is rather poor, but this is the first time we've seen a Tesla put a full size glider into the air.

Video description:

“This is not a professional video, but one of our flyer, Jonas Schwengler (thanks, Jonas!), documented the start from the back seat of the Tesla. Interestingly, the acceleration was strong and completely even on uneven and slightly damp grass. The aircraft is an ASK-21 double seat. Pro start with a 370m rope at 250-320m depending on the wind you need about 3% of the battery charge.”
