    10 electric aircraft

    Here is an interesting video showing ten electric aircraft. They are all kind of cool, but still have a way to go before they start carrying paying passengers. I looks like we still need much better batteries to keep these things in the air for very long: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abtj87wAX0Q

    The business section of my newspaper today, in an article written by Peter Holley of the Washington Post, reports that Rolls-Royce plans to build a battery-powered vertical take-off and landing aircraft as soon as the early 2020's. It would have a 250 mph top speed and be able to carry five passengers a distance of 500 miles. Upon reading this, I thought they must know more about future battery improvements than I do.

    The batteries I got for my Kart are also used in the Antares 23, which is a pretty nice looking craft:
