“The plane is a modified glider that was retrofitted to allow for the extra weight of two lithium-ion battery packs. The plane had to be jacked up to allow for a larger propeller. But now the li-ion packs can push the plane to 70 mph for 90 minutes (which should get yout to and from work every morning, if you’re interested.) The plane charges overnight, and it takes about 70 cents of electricity to do so.
The coolest thing might be that Fishman can flip a switch in his cockpit that turns the propeller into a wind powered generator. So, upon landing, he can use the propeller to both decelerate the plane and charge the batteries for the next flight! Man that’s cool!”
