All excellent suggestions, but unless I missed it, don't overlook the Ampeer newsletter at http://homepage.mac.com/kmyersefo

Ken Myers and Keith Shaw have been leaders in e-power literally from the very beginning. The archives are full of easy to understand articles on every aspect of e-flight.

Good one Walt, will add the Ampeer to my list. Completely forgot about Ken's work, even though I have an announcement subscription to the Ampeer.
