Electric Personal Airplane (Quietly) Unveiled

Sonex Aircraft and AeroConversions Products unveiled yesterday its E-Flight Initiative," and with it, a prototype ELECTRIC AIRPLANE. The quiet new flying machine is a light sport aircraft with an unusual combination of a v-tail plus tailwheel configuration. The powerplant reveals plans to build 10 battery "safe boxes" each with 8 Li-Poly battery packs per box. I want one.

Great idea, I had a look at it in Oshkosh this year,(2007). They are trying to find a better source of electricity, it won't run for more than 45 min yet. The motor and plane choice are great though. Perhaps a Mr. Fusion home energy reactor...
