Let us know down below!Reply Why the sim and the real version are different makes no sense. Yeah, we're gonna practice flying a different plane.Reply Perhaps hydrogen planes will be more viable – we need a 3 fold increase in battery power density to make small planes really useful and at least a 12 fold increase for airlinersReply 1 hour of flight? Somebody go get Elon.Reply Why not put solar panels on it for a lil extra milesReply I shouldn't have no surprises with this? And he works at NASA? No wonder! 2:20Reply Electric Planes in airports will happen! (not in my life though 8m 42)Reply "in cruise mode, it will be emission free"? – 1:57. It's an electric plane. Isn't it emission free anyway? Maybe hybrids are a more practical alternative.Reply I can't believe that NASA has come up with an electric plane that has ONLY 100 Miles range. I hope the can learn from other Electric planes like Pipstral, Alice from EVIATION all have much higher ranges.Reply Extremely excited for electric flight. I've tried to adjust my lifestyle to reduce my carbon footprint–I use my bicycle for most travel within 25 km of home, I eat less meat and more local produce, cut my trips to the London office, but I still fly a lot and feel guilty when I do, because one flight wipes out all the gains I've made elsewhere.Reply primeiro avião X tripulado em duas décadas é 100% elétrico É o futuro do MundoReply Hydrogen fuel cell instead of batteries. Use the space in the wings rather than fill them with Styrofoam, just like all other planes which store their fuel there.Reply Good Idea. Regards from EuropeReply Its gonna be interesting to see what the future holds in this area of avionicsReply WTFReply Why do the small engines fold up for cruise flight? I would imagine it would take minimal energy to keep them spinning in cruise, and I was under the impression that higher efficiency can be obtained by moving a larger mass of air more slowly rather than a smaller mass more rapidly.As it stands, it seems (from the perspective of a YouTube commentator at chairing it up) that any efficiency gains from the higher aspect ratio wing will be lost to the multiple drag pods the engines become when they’re not in use. I heard that the storage pods on the long ez take 5 knots off the top speed aloneReply Rather excited for the future. I'm looking forward to this kind of technology to come into its own.Reply Love the idea of an all electric plane. Just have to find a battery or power supply to make it feasible for more than hour. Maybe a long extension cord, or a big rubber band for a hybrid electric!Reply A long way offReply The Government is going slow things down. I have been waiting for the electric Black Fly to be released it was going to be released in 2019 but the Government is holding up the release. It's BSReply We should have no surprises…Reply *crewedReply NASAs reason for doing this is weird…Reply Is it VTOl?Reply It's great that NASA is doing something besides watching Russia ferry our astronauts to the ISS , but building planes is not cost effective when done by the government and allied contractors. At least we'll be paying 8 times more than needed. I guess the bean counters at NASA went to the AOC school of finance… "Spend all you want, we'll print more". And just like Orange Obama says," The economy is Booming… let's lower interest rates" Another over budget albatross to hang on our wall of failure.Reply I think hybrid long range aircraft may be viable sooner.Reply Electric appears to be the future way. For Planes, Trains, and Ships, I believe fuel cell technology with hydrogen may be a transportation long-distance solution that could be potentially manufactured at their ports to run these electric motors or generators.Reply chishh i hate itReply Never. What we need is coal burning aircraft.Reply 200 mile range?Reply Need better batteries need to invest heavy into battery research.Reply How many billions did NASA need to build this plane? ShameReply As long as propellers doesn't make thousand bee noice., It's perfectReply Where my boy elonReply Until the replacement for lithium ion is here electric will not be viable. You have your Tesla it works sure but you do understand that Neodymium is a RARE earth mineralReply Dude looks like Ellen.Reply Love keep doing it 😉Reply Lets use "Public funds" to figure this out and then we will "give" it to private industry to "Profit" on. Classic example of "Socialism for big business" .Reply I'm sick of financing government projects with my tax dollars that end up in the private sector so they can charge me again.Reply Tesla 🙂Reply So many ignorant and outright stupid comments. News flash: the people designing and building this are way smarter than you morons!Reply It will be nice to have wind turbine at the wings that recharges the batteries after take offReply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
