    Better get a firm grasp on this excellent method to power your homebuilt, it is coming and I think for a lot of missions out there, it will be a perfect fit. BMCJ pointed out an electric Goat and it looked like a perfect complement.

    Maybe an electric powered Airbike! Hmmm

    I think we need some resources on how to adapt this form of propulsion for reliable aircraft power.

    YMMV

    I'm glad you like it. Is there a topic for this thread beyond that?

    My buddy (neighbor) that won the world championship Formula One Air Race in Thailand last year with his Grove (tapered) wing Cassutt is in the process of converting the Cassutt into an electric powered racer. I’ll let you know how that goes.

    HaHa, I came back an edited it.

    Rare to get the first post in a new category.

    I know nothing about Power, but I will start to learn. What I need is a set of plans for an Electric E-Airbike!

    It's more a case of adapting the aircraft to the propulsion. Electric power is very range limited, you need an efficient aircraft to make it useful.

    Are you designing / building a full scale electric airplane?
