The BasicDisplay can be used to configure various types of charging modes and show data that is relevant for operation like temperature, rotational speeds and voltages.

The body of the SAY 29E is made of a 100% carbon composite: a lightweight material that is extremely solid and stiff. Its hull weighs as little as 380 kilograms. Fully equipped, the SAY 29E weighs about 1,950 kg.
