AR=17, L/D=35 !!!

True - Aspect Ratio 17 and L/D 1:32-35 looks impressive
Years ago (10?) Jon Sharp did a 409 MPH qualifying run in his NXT.Interesting that, even with RR involved, first flight was almost 10 months later that first announced.
It also will be interesting to see the effect of much less cooling drag on top sustained speed. Higher HP ICE powered NXT’s haven’t been leaders at Reno, where top qualifying pylon course speeds, in good conditions, are in the 410 MPH range.

Would be nice to have "pedelec" category during Icarus Cup - Cross Chanel competition.It actually would be a good way to train the pilot and check aircraft flyability instead of trying to learn to fly while putting out 500w of effort!
You are right - in 1988 Deadalus flown 115,11 km (71,5 miles) in 3 hours and 54 minutes.-DEADALUS was flown much more distance>90 km ?

Would an Electric LSA Kit Appeal to You?

Is there a need and desire for an electric light sport aircraft (LSA) kit that is inexpensive to own, operate, and maintain? Electric flight already offers that possibility, and if kits were available to further lower costs, we could see a new way to achieve low-cost flight. The LSA designation qualifies a builder to take advantage of LSA’s lighter constraints.
A good friend who happens to have designed an electric Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) a few years ago let the project lapse because of the need to tend to other business interests. He wants to know if there’s a market for a new, improved version of his original concept – an electric LSA that would fly for considerably less in operating costs than an internal-combustion model, and that would provide reliable, safe sport flying. He provided the following survey to the Experimental Aircraft Association, which created the link at the end of this entry.

Looks the ultimate life-style!
