It looks like that little plane would be a blast to fly and quieter than any combustion engine plane could ever be.
I wonder what kind of range it would have. and if the entire upper surface were made of photovoltaic cells could the range be slightly extended.
He sat a speed record in that thing, as he took it to 175 mph at le Bourget Air Show in 2011.

Oh well 15 minutes of flying time cut another 10% for take offs it would give me just enough juice to fly from home, land at the air port near town then fly back. the problem there is the airport is 10 minutes out of town by driving and I live 15 minutes from town so no advantage unless I landed on the highway in town. it is wide enough but the trucks constantly going through town may be a problem guess I'll have to wait for an electric helicopter LOL
With some upgraded brakes this 16 feet wingspan and 395 lbs MTO weight A/C could get you landed in a downtown parking lot.
I'm not sure of its eventual short takeoff possibilities though. Just add a JATO bottle for that real kick in the butt...
As it's a homebuilt type, I assume there's some leeway...
