KC hit the nail on the head talking about the amount of flying you can do with electrics. My good friend flies .40 fuel planes. He has to drive 40 minutes to a field, then wait for space, etc., etc. He gets out once every few weeks. I fly twice a week, in the mornings. My flights are ~15 minutes each, usually do 2 or 3 a day. So, who do you think has logged more flight hours?

Absolutely nothing against gassers. If it was convenient, I'd probably be flying them too. I just smile, though, when they look askance at the "short flying times" electrics give.
