The aircraft became the model developed by engineers at the Slovenian 2010 year, thus, the basis has been taken of the aircraft model Pipistrel Virus, which has undergone a series of small design changes, but at the same time in technical terms has changed radically.

Aircraft Pipistrel WATTsUP designed exclusively for private use, but, ultimately, because of its high reliability, the aircraft began to be applied and the air flying school as a means suitable for training future pilots.

In view of the fact that the mass production of the plane Pipistrel WATTsUP entered only in the second half of 2014 years, to assess the real demand there currently is not possible, however, experts point to the fact that, thanks to quite promising flight performance, simple service and maintenance , high reliability and relatively low cost of the project will be no less popular than the ultra-light airplanes Pipistrel Sinus and Pipistrel Virus.

The cabin of the Pipistrel WATTsUP aircraft has approximately the same dimensions as the Pipistrel Virus, and, as before, it is designed to accommodate two people here. The instrument panel of the aircraft and the overall design inside the cockpit are further modified in accordance with the aircraft control systems and controls, however, there is still a luggage compartment in the rear of the cab that allows the aircraft to take on board a small amount of personal belongings. In addition, thanks to the paired control levers, the Pipistrel WATTsUP is perfectly suited for training flights.

Power plant Pipistrel WATTsUP consists of a single electric motor Siemens AG powered by batteries, and able to develop traction in 67 hp Due to a rather low-power powerplant, the aircraft has a number of restrictions on the speed of movement, in particular, the maximum figure is about 195 km / h, while the cruising speed is set at the level of 157 km / h. In addition, since the capacity of the batteries used here is very limited, the aircraft can only cover distances up to 225 kilometers, which is currently very small, but, according to experts, Pipistrel will soon develop more advanced modifications capable of overcoming The distance to 400-450 kilometers.
