    There are a number of exciting electric aircraft efforts underway, but to start this thread to discuss them in, I came across this great story, so I thought I'd use it to kick things off.

    Basically, it's about a young model airplane builder who decides to make his own passenger-capable electric airplane. Enjoy!

    evs and airplanes are both great.
    but if both are combined, they are even better :D:D:D

    The Eviation Alice is a plane with a 650-mile range. It will use a 900 kWh battery sourced from Kokam, with cells said to be 260 Wh/kg, and 3 250 kW motors. A mockup was presented in 2017 at the Paris air show, and it looks quite striking. Will keep an eye out for actual flights.
