"hej, a quick update from our side to show you how robust such a plastic solar cell module is.  You can laser cut it and it still works.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFQhnGjuKu8 "

"Hi, I don't think it makes much sense to put them onto a plane. For example for my glider I have 1.8m*15cm area I can cover. The radiation is about 500W/m^2. If you have a efficiency of 10% you get 13.5W. If you power your plane with 3S this…"

"@Andrew -- I assume these cells are roll-to-roll printed, so no. If you built a bespoke inkjet system, perhaps, but its still tricky. However, you could just mould these into the wing. Alta solar claims it's possible to use a clear gelcoat as…"

"Could your PV's be printed directly onto a wing mould surface prior to laminating, in the same way high-end composite wings are painted in the mould?"

The polymer solar cell was envisioned many years ago as a low cost flexible PV technology made using fast printing processes, simple machinery and abundant materials. At the turn of the millennium there was a lot of hope that the vision would become reality and this spawned a massive surge in the scientific literature with ever increasing performance and marvels of processability, yet the polymer solar cell remained elusive and the few examples of available OPV have…
