Not sure what you envision for most applicable flying weight. In the 4-7 lb range one could adequately power it nicely with either (or both) 4S Thunder Power Pro 45C 2650mAh & 3800mAh. Have two for a quick change and in no time it's up, up and away ... INSTEAD of waiting an hour for a recharge. So, how big a scale model and expensive electric power pack(s) do you envision as practical before inside charging is worth considering? If you're going to charge onboard for an hour someone has to stand watch. It's not like you can drive to McDs for two apple pies and coffee.
I can envision a Silcon Valley electrical engineer building a beauty with the best switches, protection circuitry and custom-made fabrications in his workshop this very hour. Or a millionaire with money to burn hiring someone to install an impressive electric power plant in his Giant Scale model. A wouldn't it be NICE
article would certainly attract readers and increase circulaltion.
What about a larger scale model of that personal electric mini-plane EQP2 Excursion(photo below) would be a NICE cover photo for Electric Flyer.
PS: last sentence of EQP2 article ... "The stumbling block: its "Concept Electronic Power Source," which could be a design challenge, but electric planes already exist
, so it's not impossible
It seems like most of your glow-to-electric readers and common sense garage logic builders would begin with something comparable to a .40 size with at most a 60 to 100 amp ESC and E-flite Power 46 B/less. Wouldn't most of these guys make accessibility and location a top priority without going to the extra expense and maybe even inconvenience to charge onboard.
edited reasoning ... Henry111 started this thread two days ago and yet no replies, so I gave it a GO. Perhaps like the other thread my input will generate some more photographic action. IMO a scale model of the EQP2 (10-20lbs) would be a perfect candidate
