It starts getting annoying for me, too. You've made your argument that low efficiency is good enough many times. It doesn't get any more plausible on repetition.

It does not make any sense to me to have a power system that runs at 45% efficiency, wasting precious energy, at precisely those moments when the pilot most needs full power to the props.

The seatbelts in your car are only needed during that critical second when you're involved in a collision. Does that mean its okay if they only half-work when you need them?

And now I'm off to work on my TS-II some more. Looks like its going to rain - again - and I may not get to go flying today, so I guess I'll have to settle for building.
