Noneaya Biddnes's insight:

Whats not to like?  These engines are flying and have been for a while.

 

The Honda based engine is proving very reliable and a solid performer that sips fuel. It is also the most affordable option at this power level costing only $12k ready to go. That is 1/2 the price of a 100hp Rotax.

Noneaya Biddnes's insight:

I have been watching this engine for a couple years now as its been developed and it is impressive. The low RPM direct drive engine is more effecient than the Rotax, and will be cheaper to own, operate and overhaul as well. This really is a Better Idea.

 

Can't wait untill the 145hp Six is available.

That battery life video that had gone viral due to a recent post on UpWorthy now has an update.
Noneaya Biddnes's insight:

The limiting factor in many alternative energy systems is effecient storage of that energy (The wind stops and it gets dark)... or long charging times, Electric vehicles for example. This new tech may lead to an answer, and a Cheap answer at that.

 

'Graphene, a very simple carbon polymer, can be used as the basic component of a "supercapacitor" -- an electrical power storage device that charges far more rapidly than chemical batteries. Unlike other supercapacitors, though, graphene's structure also offers a high "energy density," -- it can hold a lot of electrons, meaning that it could conceivably rival or outperform batteries in the amount of charge it can hold.'

Noneaya Biddnes's insight:

This uses Honda tech but is engineered from the block up as an Aircraft engine. It's 110hp based upon the Hond Fit block.

 

The best thing? The price; $11,995.

LiquidPiston ::

LiquidPiston :: | Technology application; Finding a better way. | Scoop.it
Noneaya Biddnes's insight:

'The LiquidPiston engine is based on a patent-pending thermodynamic cycle, called the "High-Efficiency Hybrid Cycle" (HEHC), which borrows elements from Otto, Diesel, Atkinson, and Rankine cycles. Several critical design features make the LiquidPiston engine architecture both versatile and capable of outperforming conventional engines on all parameters.'

 

Maybe, maybe not. But the potential is large indeed if it can be achieved. There is very much a need and market for a Jet-A burning option in General Avaiation.
