I am looking for a solar cell panel for my LS1 glider-plane without motor.

Sometime ago (+6 mdr.), I did read about an extreme slim solar cell, witch
was mounted on the back of a glider. Now, I cannot find the information.

Does anyone know technical information, and/or where to buy slim- and
effective solar cells?

I Just been in Norway at "Extreme Altitude Challenge in Norway in March
2004", flying in Waves up to 6.670 m.
See my pictures at: http://www.privat.eb-data.dk/indexV2004.html

Safe landings,

build #2 in 1968

Hi Erik,

This is off-topic for alt.solar.thermal's "practical uses of the sun's heat."
I'll repost it in alt.solar.photovoltaic...

Good luck,

 You might look into the Unisolar flexible panels. They come in sizes from
0.3m x 0.3m up to about 3m long.  They are just a thin silicon film over a
thin sheet of stainless
steel and a protective coating.

Possible what they call the solar roofing for steel roof could be applicable
too. They are about
3M long.
