    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    In the USA the current administration (ha ha) is going to start a ambitious project of electric infrastructure at taxpayer expense across the entire nation. It is going to happen (you should feel your wallet getting lighter as you read) so are enough of us going to yell, scream, piss and moan...

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    Battery energy density is not likely to improve much, Lithium being as light as you can go realistically. Hydrogen fuel "if" produced from green energy is "green" and is more energy dense than batteries are likely ever to be. Building a sustainable infrastructure to use green energy for charging...

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    Well if a car can plug in, in the EU and the same car can plug in, in the USA maybe aircraft should use the same standard? Also hydrogen refueling.

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    Charging takes a long time. Having enough power for two launches would facilitate someone going somewhere and returning without an undue stay for charging.

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    Supposedly ... it is to become mainstream by government subsidy. The thing about it is you could put a hydrogen filling station on a trailer or skid and either have it filled by a vendor who comes to the field or take it to a vendor reasonably close. Or put up a charging/filling station on the...

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    Report was from 2009 so a newer report would be helpful, but there is strong evidence that for range fuel cell is likely the way to go.

    Picking a Plane

    I think about picking an airplane is a lot like picking a renter for your property. If you pick poorly you will be constantly nagged and time and expenses will be disproportionate to desired. It is therefor wise to make sure you get a good airplane or renter even at the expense of letting some...

    Where to look for source of temporary electrical system failure?

    Ground and corrosion. Sometimes wires will appear fine but under the insulation there will be so much corrosion that after warming up they fail.

    Mountain plane

    Maybe a wheel going over the cliff attached to a yoke and a rope, with a pulley on top of the hill with a vertical or angled shaft. Pull the wheel back up with a mule or atv. Holler "four" before launching wheel over edge.
