V8 - interesting concept ... but ...

Rather too many battery-related aircraft incidents for unlimited confidence at the moment. Batteries are only an intermediate in the 'power train' ... the charge source (coal, nuclear, gas) really needs to be hydrogen to have any realistic value in climate change.

The discharge curve would make interesting viewing.

Hi all, yesterday while sitting in the back garden with the missus minding our collective own business I heard a puttering noise ( technical term ) a few moments later a Piper J3 Cub flew past quite low & at a leisurely pace, the only one I have ever seen, coincidentally there is a scale modelling magazine on the desk next to me with an advert for a Thunder Tiger ARTF kit of this aircraft on the back cover & to round it out my other halfs maiden name is Piper!
