Default Electric Airplane

Ooh, Morrow Industries doesn't have to do all the work itself -- Britten-Norman is working on an electric version of the Islander.

Only a half-hour flight time with "real world" batteries, but Project batteries or fusion reactors could extend that a lot.

The Islander was mentioned in this forum in the "Come fly with air morrow today!" thread.

Anyway, a baseline for working up an electric Project aircraft.
