Trying to persuade these guys to look at an assisted glider version.

Anyone want one?

Looks fun. But I'd need to go over 200mph with a 1,500 mile range to justify the purchase.

You just linked him to a trolls vs. ogres fight thread. Ah, the CO2 emitted, the environmental damage in each post. . . .

Agreed - coool e-vehicle... but the really inspirational thing about this AEV is the backstory... The initial aircraft was built in the designer's home from bamboo and glass fibre, and flew once. The project has moved from there to a stable, well funded business with 70,000 air miles flown on its test airframes, about to produce its first 100 aircraft. Seriously ... well done chaps.
