OK, bit of sarcasm on my part, but folks need to be defining the mission first, just like any other discussion on what to build or how to equip it.

Electric flight may be fine for some limited uses------as it stands at this time. Who knows what the future will bring?

To be useful for many folks it needs to improve a lot. How far can you fly in a single day cross country compared to a gasoline powered aircraft? At the same speed and load?

Biggies for me are flight time, charge time, and availability of locations for getting charged. And cost.
