Geely ( Volvo China ) bought Terrafugia. I want that to sink in for a minute. A major auto manufacture buys into (even though it maybe a niche ) a flying-auto. As someone here in the Detroit burbs, that is huge and it gets no airplay, no pun intended...
Definitely interesting. If true, the two-hour flight duration is useful, even if the cruise speed is low. If the recharge time is short enough, that means even "$100 burger" flights are now within the realm of electrics.
Turnigy was not first electric. It was Yuneec.
Turnigy is brand of Hobbyking RC shop. And some have used the biggest Turnigy motors in electric ultralights like Electric Lazair (before he switched to higher quality Joby motors after apparent KV problems with turnigy, KV not low enough).
