Sonex, purveyor of banana-yellow kit airplanes at around the $25,000 mark, has just unveiled a prototype electric motor. Company founder John Monnett showed off an electric motor powerplant, controller, battery pack and charging systems earlier this week—although he kept quiet about who had supplied the battery. Something tells me it wasn't Sony... The researchers behind the electric motor, known as the E-Flight Team, used 80 Lithium Polymer batteries and packed them into 10 safe boxes, each with a blowhole to safely direct fire or explosion out via an exhaust.
