What do you guys think about using solar power to charge the batteries while out flying? I’m thinking of having two groups of batteries, one charging on the ground, while the other is being used in flight. Land, switch batteries, repeat!
Here’s an interesting portable solar charging system:
The highest power system is 220 watts and weighs 14 lbs. How long would it take to charge a 40 min flight time battery pack with this?
Wouldn’t it be awesome to have a wing made out of solar panel material to power in flight? The tech probably doesn’t exist yet, but we can dream…
