Following up on my post two days ago, I’m happy to report Wired magazine just ran a story online about the Yuneec E-Spyder that Tom Peghiny of Flight Designs has been developing for them. The story has several excellent photos and it’s a good write-up, so click on over there to see how the mainstream media is helping push public awareness of electric aviation. *** Here’s the Wired video of the E-Spyder that ought to whet your appetite for electric flight…I can’t wait to get back to the states and get over to Tom’s to do my own story on it.
Update 10/29/10 — After Jim Lawrence and I did our bits on the E-Spyder and electric airplanes, Wired blogger Jason Paur wrote another piece for Wired Autopia that represents more great reading you should check out. Jason’s newest article summarizes all the electric-powered light aircraft developments quite well. —DJ
