hybrid plane

Post by craneplaneguy » Jun 07 2018 10:28pm

Having a PluginPrius as my daily driver, and also flying a Rotax 912S powered LSA, I can see the hybrid concept being workable. Lots of power for takeoff using both, in cruise just one power source would do the job. Complexity and weight (that's all!) are probably a deal killer for now.https://www.avweb.com/videos/Video-Hyps ... 115-1.html
