Something for the pilots here

http://yuneeccouk.site.securepod.com/Aircraft.html

$90k for an electric two seater airplane with flying costs of $15/hour .... Maybe I will get to be an airplane owner in a few years after all.

Re: Something for the pilots here

Might cool Andy - thanks for sharing.

You can just bet they've got plans to turn the wing surfaces into solar panels to greatly extend the range. The other really awesome aspect is that annual inspections should be dirt cheap, and probably only take an hour or two vs. an all day affair for piston driven.
