    10/23 Raptor Video

    Perhaps one of the big reasons why bureaucrats have not yet created the same restrictions that they created for general aviation is the low exposure of the experimental sector, so an exhibition like Peter's with a YouTube channel with almost 24k subscribers runs the risk of something going wrong...

    Take a look at the aileron, almost all the flight it's deflected almost 5 degrees: He didn't show the other side, but if both are deflected at the same angle the airplane has a elevon or if this is a normal deflection the airplane has serious problems of wings geometry.

    For me looks the spades of the ailerons are forcing the surfaces up with some gusting, this could be the responsible for the pitch instability if both ailerons be forced up and deforming acting like elevator. I don't think that spades are useful for this aircraft.

    10/23 Raptor Video

    It already flew, not a nice flight, but flew. There is no power enough, no stability, pretty heavy and no enough engine cooling, he didn't believe in a dynamometer that showed 175hp for his engine and choose to believe in his calcs that project 300hp instead of use that test to fix his engine...

    10/23 Raptor Video

    In my studies about canard design I always read about the best position for the canard is always above or aligned with the main wing because in high angle of attach the downwash became more apart from the main wing.

    Aero News Network Video - Terrible Raptor 1st Flight Review

    I already had a broken car engine because I trusted those preparers who said they knew everything about reprogramming chips to improve the car's performance, it happened that on a trip the piston of my engine was punctured, the diagnosis was a bad mix. After that I had the opportunity to visit...

    The best temporary solution would be he fill the hole with foam and shape the surface with the wing lower surface and make test, this fence in front of the hole is a little funny he think it will solve the turbulence issue with this solution. I think he tried at the same time for those who...

    Aero News Network Video - Terrible Raptor 1st Flight Review

    The standard power of the Audi V6 TDI is about 245 hp, then if the raptor is running bellow of this power probably all the preparation of the engine became it worst than the factory default parameters, I think change the parameters of injection and curves is only for specialists working in...

    I think this dyno wasn't broken, the performance of the aircraft was worthy for 175hp. The acceleration and climb rate don't lie.

    Correct me the experts if I am wrong, but by the logic if an engine cannot cool by running statically with full power then it is not safe to fly, or it is allowed an extra static heating hoping that in flight by the greater air flow this problem solved?

    I think this article describes exactly that Peter is doing.

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    I'm asking me about if Peter is right about of the effect of the big hole of the landing gear almost in front of the wing isn't the cause of the weird behavior of the airplane. I think this prototype could have non retract landing gear and a lot of issues would be avoided. I saw that he improved...

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    The fact is that the plane flew, but it has been oscillating since it left the ground until the landing without stopping and on all axes, does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Any theory? I'm curious about this effect.
