Something I wanted to Do but never had the money to do is taking an
electrically assisted sail plane. Lighten the core as much as possible
then use film solar cells on the wings and BEAM circuits/motors and
make a Photovore sailplane with a Sunrise to Sunset range. I never
could figure a Night aloft unless a Pummer was used as well. It is
just an Idea that I have kicked around in my brain for a time. I even
thought of coring out one of those big styrofoam glides at
Walmart/K-mart and try it just never could afford the Flex Film Solar
cells like as found on this page, http://www.73.com/a/0108.shtml .
How this thought/idea helps.
Be kinda cool to get a day runner and really cool to get a stay aloft.
