Viking dragonfly airframe kit plane 2 seat airplane canard.

With the dawn of electric aviation well risen and electric car parts now abundant I. The auto recycling yards, for a summer project we picked up this dragonfly airframe kit, one of the most efficient airplanesin the sky, to cover I. Solar cells and power with a recycled Nissan leaf Power train. 

This will be a fun off season summer project for the crew to knock out..

Aeromodding a Nissan Leaf Increased Range

How to inexpensively increase the range of a nissan leaf by 54%

The aeromodding of our nissan leaf for aerodynamic improvement has begun. The modifications include a 75% grille block, reversed mud flaps, a 12 volt 400 watt solar roof to alliveate the dc/dc converter load on the main high voltage battery, a ecomodder 3 piece translucent polycarbonate  Kamm back that still allows rear view and normal hatch operation while reducing aerodynamic drag which increases MPGE and range.

Soon it will have a complete hitch trunk tail cone, wheel spats, moon disc solid wheel hubcaps, etc...

We are currently building a custom hitch rack that is a wedge shaped box with licence plate and tail lights that follows and tapers the back end of the nissan leaf to a nice aerodynamic raindrop shape; since 70% of aerodynamics is aft body!

How to get over 100 mpg out of a crew cab one tone truck. Power it with sunshine!

Our Nissan Leaf makes the ultimate solar powered horse ranch one tone crew cab truck, we all fit in it comfortably, it yoinks the 1 tone hay trailer right up the mountain at altitude as easy as it drives on the surface of the moon!

Honestly it has the most giddi up torque  of any of the mid size trucks we have owned.

We pulled several 6000# loads of sand 20 miles up to our ranch when building the horse round pen; still averaged well over 100mpg something our maintenance hazard of a Ford truck could never even get 1\10 of! 

But what I like most about our Nissan leaf, as a retired airplane mechanic, I never have to take a wrench to it... Talk about uptime, I love just using this crew cab one tone truck, in 100,000 miles since 2012 all I have had to do to keep the leaf running is put on 2 sets of tires and top up the bug juice. Absolutely the most efficient reliable truck I have ever owned...

Simply plug it in to the sun when you're done, and it's always ready to run.

No problem making a 600 mile round trip to get horse meds either, the leaf has more highway endurance then my backbone or bladder, a couple  30 min quick charges on a trip are looked forward to walk about, stretch, and or eat moments (good at reducing chances of heart attack from sitting hours on end!).

And with the help of Darian from we got this electronic black box that Jack's into the chademo DC port on our leaf so we can tie into it's 24 kwh battery.

I tested it could power our ranch, water well and all for nearly a week in a shtf scenario... This has come in handy for several winter ice storm outtages up here in the northwest.

If you have not dumped the maintenance prone flaling piston engine yet for the most reliable prime mover in the world "a motor" you are a fool with your wallet. If you have to have an engine at least go with the smart choice, a brayton cycle turbine engine!

A first generation used Nissan leaf is now so cheap to buy it's ROI with reduced fuel costs and maintenance will pay for itself in a little over 1 year.

Yea for the educated, the Nissan Leaf or any EV is the smartest choice in personal transportation!

How far can we drive on sunshine?

How far can we drive on sunshine?

It seems we can easily drive further than we need to by almost 2/3 rds!

This study clearly illustrates that the average Americans home with a hand full of solar panels on its roof can clearly harvest and generate more kwh of fuel per year annum than the average Americans crew cab 1 tone truck needs with an electric drivetrain that provides more use able torque and horse power across the entire powerband!

Imagine your life with no fuel bill nor a power bill!

Simply provided by the sunshine that lands on the roof of your home!
