I'm not interested in planes/flying usually, but I felt quite excited about this!

Environmentally-friendly and, I'm assuming, safer than gliding ..... what's not to like?!! :w00t:

Well done the backers who literally 'got the project off the ground'!

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

Wow..pretty cool I think. It's not perfect but at least it's a start.
I hope this idea is developed more.

Yes it is a very cool aircraft and should be commended. However it's operation is extremely limited. Development of solar technologies is important however limited.

Limited or not I'm really glad they are trying.  I hope they can find a way for solar energy to be better than use of fossil fuels.  Steps like this are very important in that process.
