This is awesome! Do you think that the only applications will be military or do you think we will see this type of technology for commercial flights?

    The article says the plane only weighs 117 pounds, so I can’t imagine it carrying passengers. Whether or not passengers could be shuttled on such a plane depends on how much power the plane gets from the solar panels. I imagine that a commercial airplane would still need its engines to get up in the air, but adding solar panels could reduce the amount of fuel used.
