Thxs for info - interestinge-Strojenik Zero 50 HP MotorGlider.
This aircraft-conversion was featured in Kitplanes recently....
Specs might be of interest:
We have an experimental electricly converted Strojnik S-2A for sale, fitted with a Zero motorcycle 50 hp motor, and we are now completing flight tests in this motor glider. The battery charge lasts about 1 HOUR, if the aircraft is flown conservatively. The aircraft can be flown to 3000 ft AGL and then soared in lift with enough charge left to sustain for 20-30 minutes. The aircraft needs some polishing and painting, but it is in good condition and ready to fly. After the passing of two owners, and with other owners downsizing their flying, we have decided to sell this unique aircraft. However, at least one owner/builder (the test pilot), continues to enjoy flying the electric S-2, and will happily tell you about the aircraft. He has now flown the S-2 five times since July this year, including a 30 mile (out and back) ridge flight. Contact him at his e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

That makes sense to me
This is nice ideaNeat eTwin-engine motorglider here:
=we have got A123 (15 Wh elements) =2.7 kWh , circa 20 kg...=accu quastion.
Looks like you go really forward - good job
=this instalation was for 15 Ah A123 cells testing only...we by them circa 400 EUR,Looks like you go really forward - good job
Just... be carefully with cells.
You use metal "cable tie" and cells are touching each other.
If you are not strictly limited by place I would definitelly recommend you to make installation with more space between cells.
