How long will the motor run on one charge, and how many car batteries do you have in it? Are you ever going to expand the line?

How long will the motor run on one charge,

a few days

and how many car batteries do you have in it?

none. there were a total of 12, 24V 44AH airplane batteries in it. 3 banks wired in parallel of 4 in series to give 96 volts.

Are you ever going to expand the line?

we would have to rebuild it first. it was at my dads house. he moved so we tore it up. the equipment is at my inlaws house now sitting in a field covered with a tarp. i plan to move the whitcomb over to the airport this summer and put it in my hanger to get it out of the elements.
