Default Remind me why do we fly glow planes, compare to electric planes,

Hello,

Remind me why do we build and fly glow planes, compare to electric planes,

I never saw those electric powered planes (didn’t fly long time).

Dont get me wrong I like the smell of 2-Stroke engines!

As a concept the electric planes should be at lease cleaner and easier to maintain.

Is there an electric engine that gives the power of O.S. 91 Fx or 46 AX FS 120 III ?

Its easier when the plane is big, I can also see how my effort is flying.

I'm just bombarded with ads for EP, wondered if im missing something, seems not.

Thanks

Alex
