Lightweight Double Electric Aircraft were developed by Chinese engineers and scientists in 2006 year. The main reason and purpose of the commencement of work on the design of the aircraft of this model is the need to develop low-cost and yet highly efficient and environmentally friendly aircraft that can be widely used in the private sector of civil aviation.

At the design stage to the Chinese aircraft manufacturers a serious problem is the lack of ability to create a large lifting force by means of electric motors, however, a way out was found, and it is to increase the wingspan, and, consequently, to provide enhanced lifting force. Because of the rather large wingspan, the aircraft quite often mistaken for a motorized glider, however, in reality, the aircraft does not belong to the class of aircraft data.

His first flight of the aircraft Yuneec International E430 model implemented in June 2009 years, however, the first tests of the aircraft did not meet the leadership of the Chinese aircraft manufacturer, and therefore in 2010, the aircraft was tested a second time, after which it was prepared mass production. In 2015, the Chinese aircraft manufacturers have considered the possibility of launching a full-scale mass production of the aircraft, which would allow to reduce the cost, and within tight deadlines to increase the sale of aircraft several times.

The cabin air ship model Yuneec International E430 can accommodate up to two people - a pilot and a passenger, and, before the Chinese experts examined the possibility of using these aircraft as a means of air taxis, however, because of the rather large wingspan, this innovation has not been able settle down. Transported on board his plane loads Yuneec International E430 can not because of a number of design constraints and restrictions on the maximum take-off weight.

The power plant of the aircraft Yuneec International E430 consists of one electric motor brand Yuneec Power Drive 40 54 hp traction in which eating from lithium-polymer batteries, can disperse the aircraft to maximum speed in 150 km \ h., Allowing to overcome the distance to 225 kilometers.

Because the maximum range of electric flight of the aircraft is very much limited, the Chinese aircraft manufacturers continue to work on the improvement of the aircraft.
