Yes one of the things I am trying to wrap my head around is the inline losses. Starting with a 1.6L Turbo Diesel that can deliver ~100kw power is key, pick then an EMRAX motor to use as a generator - 40% performance as it isn't optimized to be used this way without a controller. Match that with a tandem pair of Emraxs to drive the propeller. Then I'm not sure how much is lost when going from AC-DC to the controller, then also back from DC-AC. All has to be factored to keep losses at a minimum.
