Solar power gets so much attention around the world, people are finding many different ways to employ it. The aviation industry is already exploring the possibilities of using solar energy to power commercial airliners. As a hobbyist, you can beat the aviation industry to the punch. Try your own hand at using solar power by building a model plane powered with solar energy.
Cut the battery wires and take the battery out of the plane.
Cut two pieces of 20-to-100-volt wire. Connect them to the left and right sides of the cells on the aluminium solar panel by folding the extra foil over the wire pieces, effectively creating a positive and negative energy flow.
Lay the plane in the sun for at least five minutes to allow the cells to generate power.
