I have been interested in electric aircraft. We need batteries with better energy densities. I have hope for some of the super cap techs. For weight comparison, one must look at the entire propulsion system ICEs weight more than electric motors. There are numerous advantages to electric. Fuel costs less and the suppliers can't make us use and charge more for "aviation electricity". The MTBF will be better since electric motors have much few parts than ICEs. Maintenance costs will be less.
Welcome to the Tampa Bay UX Group Neil! Our next meetup is March 29 at CoWork Tampa. It is a "Day of UX" event sponsored in part by Tech Nova. It is going to be great so I hope you can join us. In the meantime, if you have any questions about our group, please let me know.
