Spike Aerospace has unveiled design changes to its S-512 supersonic jet, which was unveiled as a concept in 2013. Among other things, it now has a delta wing configuration for better aerodynamics.

It might look like it was designed by a six-year-old, with 18 motors crammed onto a too-thin wing, but the Hybrid-Electric Integrated Systems Testbed (HEIST) experimental wing demonstrator could be the future of electric aircraft.

Researchers at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and AXTER Aerospace have created an auxiliary electric propulsion unit designed to be installed in light aircraft to provide extra range in the event of an engine failure.
