Looks like a Zodiac Mk V HD (5.3m) MilPro. 12k or there-abouts. Interesting set-up but not cheap.

hmm, them HDmk V's are not cheap
neither are the battery packs.

Im still not convinced about li-Ion battery's and water! Linky.
I'm sure it will get there at some point, at the moment its just after the Wright bothers in my mind - proven concept - way too early to be practical or financially viable.
