    Electric racing planes do not need to be slow. Over a short race they should be able to be above 400mph and may soon give the unlimiteds a run for the money. Range is obviously the problem at the moment, so after a few laps they will be stuffed.

    That is correct. Peter is flying legally with a Part 103 craft.

    Wonder what these EDFs could do in a superlight electric Avro Vulcan like homebuilt ?

    Exactly Bob !

    Labelling electric flying a political matter is against everything an aviator keeps sacred.

    Test !

    Above is a sketch of an aeroplane that produces today 6 x more power from the sun than Solar Challenger in 1981...with identical span and Solar Impulse wing loading.

    Not all flying wings are safe and stable; https://www.atsb.gov.au/publications...aair198902600/

    I figure the above displayed plane can cross the Atlantic via Azores to New Foundland from Portugal ( 1500 km and 2800 km legs daytime at very high speed at high ).
