A single-seat, all-electric sea plane has successfully taken its first test flight. The FlyNano was originally designed as a hybrid electric/petrol engine "fun flyer" craft, but with advances in batteries and canada pharmacy electric motors since its debut over a year ago, the FlyNano has instead gone all-electric.
The FlyNano features a lightweight carbon-fiber body and has a cruising speed of 87 mph. The rudders are controlled by pedals and the throttle and steering are controlled by a stick. The one thing it's lacking? A windshield. But the company is using this as a selling point with the philosophy of "feel the wind" and recommending helmet and goggles when flying.
Sea planes aren't exactly high priority on http://www.richcongress.com/high-quality-levitra the list of transportation modes we'd like to see get an all-electric makeover -- it's pretty equal with electric jet skis -- but any transistion away from fossil fuels is welcome and, well, the sea plane is pretty cool.
