Head off. https://www.bladonmt.com/micro-turbine-genset/technical-specificationsWell bladon has the new jaguar range extender.
Hkg works with pininfarina using the h600.
Define efficient? Lightweight, turn fuel into amps fairly efficiently...
However, the turbines are lighter weight than a 4 stroke generator so... Pretty sure the Jaguar ones they're claiming 41% efficiency, clearly not the the same as the ones that are being sold as grid tied.Head off. https://www.bladonmt.com/micro-turbine-genset/technical-specifications
25% is on pair with same power 4 stroke engine. My knowoledge is retarded on turbo and efficiency.
This is interesting.

For SAR operations that's awesome.Good grief...15 hr endurance ?!

Right you are...hope he has passed the half way mark by now."The first of the two Atlantic crossings, starting from the Paris Air Show in July, 2015"
No. As we' still waiting for him to arrive, I think it's far too slow.
Posting a 6 year old article that incorrectly projects an unrealistic accomplishment to happen 5 years ago isn't remotely close to perfect.
75mph at 5kW for 4,000 miles needs 267kWh of power. 10 square meters of really good solar cell area will generate about 2kW. Even if you assume that 2kW is generated continuously through the night, 160kWh of battery is still needed, roughly 1300 lbs of today's best batteries, not including interconnects or casing. There isn't anywhere near enough room or weight handling capacity in that motorglider for that much battery.
The plane was unrealistic from the start - Solar Impulse 2, the electric plane that actually crossed the Atlantic, had 27 times the solar cell area and 1400 lbs of battery.
Yes.Is it possible that they hoped too much of the solarcells integrated to skins ?
