    I thought this was an interesting video. The goal was to see which type of battery could sustain a flight ( on the plane he used ) for about an hour...

    Tom Stanton is a clever guy, I regularly watch his channel.
    He is not afraid to admit failure and he covers some really diverse subject matter.
    Li-Ion is definitely superior when it comes to flight times, but there is an if, that is if you don't need high current.
    Ideal for an airplane that has relatively low current draw.
    At this stage multirotors and helicopters just pull too much current.
    When it comes to high current applications LiPo is king at present.
    Although I have seen some interesting videos on solid state LiPo, that is with a semi solid electrolyte rather than the current liquid.
    Way less volatile, cut them in half and they lose capacity but keep working and don't catch fire.
