We didn’t announce an electric airplane at Sun N Fun … but I did fly an electric Belite late last year. I was very surprised that I posted so many hints about our work in this area… got no response.
This particular project wasn’t far enough along to bring to Sun N Fun, but it sure did fly nice.

This electric ultralight aircraft was capable of excellent performance with short battery life. It took too long to recharge. I still give it thought, but haven’t worked on it this year. Should I?
