Robert Baslee of Airdrome Aeroplanes builds an electrically powered airplane in two days.
Can't wait to see it! Robert built the four Nieuport 17's for the movie Flyboys in 42 days, the Bleroit for the movie Amelia, and made the kit for my own Nieuport 11 (along with giving a bunch of support).
Knowing him, it won't be something just thrown together that barely makes it off the ground - it'll be a viable, airworthy aircraft.
