Mr. Lin, once again you are showing us why GWS is on the cutting edge of e-flight. Low voltage is a real key to small, lightweight slowflyers. While all of the surplus Li-ion cell phone packs that many of us have been buying are 7.2V packs with 2 cells, the latest cell phones, which are smaller, lighter and more efficient, all operate on 3.6V, 1-cell packs. I believe that 3.6V Li-ion packs are becoming the new standard for small electronic devices. As these become more common, the cost of these Li-ion packs will continue to come down even as their performance continues to improve. Looking ahead a year or two, I believe that many of us will be flying small, lightweight slowflyers powered by 3.6V Li-Ion packs. I expect that many if not most of these aircraft and their electronics will be produced by GWS because of your great vision in seeing these trends developing.
