How about a "History of Electric Flight" section for EzoneMag
Now that E-Flight has "come of age" (okay, too mushy a term), and RCGroups/Ezone being the premier E-flight website ... how about a nice historical look back at Electric Powered R/C planes? This would include stuff like:
* Timeline - including:
- which battery tech was introduced when?
- what cells being used (eg, when were SCR or KR's popular, LiPo, etc)
- Motors (when did the first commerical brushlesss appear? When did all the popular motors/ESC/etc and related companies started?)
- Accy's - intelligent chargers? First APC 'E' prop?
* Scans of old ads, early plans, etc
* Database of the relevant items.
* Not directly related, but I'd like to see a similar info site for Radio systems/sets/etc ...
Not only will it make good trivial reading, it'll be a good start in archiving the hobby. eg, this is a nice short history of E-Flight: http://www.iroquois.free-online.co.uk/hist.htm which leaves me wanting more!
PS - anyone knows if AMA has a seperate E-Flight historical collection, or is it just burried along with the IC stuff?

Good idea - it get's my vote.
Going through old articles can be quite entertaining, and somewhat sobering now that we take our brushless and vertical for granted.
