Unlike cars, airplanes can go straight. No winding roads on the way to Tahoe. That saves over 25% of the distance in addition to the speed advantage.

so they copy one of Burt Rutan;s designs, put an electric engine and 1000lbs of LiPo cells in and win $1.3M. pretty cool, but hardly revolutionary.

Dear ugh, so you really think that looks like the Rutan design? Only very generally, with several very big differences. You are missing a great deal in your rush to make a dismissive remark.
