A highlight of this weekend was watching two successive days of tests by Flylight's designers on their electric aircraft: a Lazair with twin props and a Dragonfly with a feathered prop which unfurls on start-up and feathers when turned off. Unfortunately, as I was taxying a Quantum during the Lazair test, I didn't have a camera to hand to catch it, but I later got a few fuzzy pics of both aircraft in the hangar with my phone camera. Photos of the Dragonfly in flight, taken by staff photographers, Mark and Dan, however, were excellent and these come courtesy of Ben Ashman.
My hangar shots are below:
