    10/23 Raptor Video

    I am guessing there will not be another flight for at least a week.

    Vashon Ranger Problems

    I agree with you 100% on the prop (non) issue! That is clearly not an issue everything else seems to be a big problem to me. I would stay away from a ranger. I don't know if these issues are easy to resolve or else they would have been resolved and the guy wouldn't be trying to sell the plane.

    Vashon Ranger Problems

    Why can't you complain after signing a deal you regret? I am happy he is showing the agreement to the internet so it informs all of us. I think that agreement is insane but maybe the agreement is compounded by a really awful plane with a ton of problems. He probably regrets the whole thing...

    Is the (c)raptor now the industry standard for "bad"? I think you might be on to something!

    Vashon Ranger Problems

    You can look at any of the 10,000 or so planes that spend a week at oshkosh with unrelenting afternoon thunderstorms and realize that none leak this bad. My cozy doesn't leak at all and I have never seen any type of piper or cessna with pools of water in them so bad the carpets are drenched.

    Vashon Ranger Problems

    This is really bad. If you go on the guy's website you will see so many problems with this design.

    Because after every single flight there has been some problem and something to "adjust". Maybe after he finds the right engine oil his problems will go away. That was where we were when he stopped doing the youtube videos.

    Kerlo posts on here regularly. He helped early on with the Raptor kit plane but is no longer involved. He is a true gentleman and a scholar.

    why can’t Peter’s “ethics” and “business plan” be talked about here? To me that is a big part of the raptor saga.

    10/23 Raptor Video

    He clearly talks about "transporting" the aircraft out west and making a multi-day trip out of it and documenting it. It starts at 17:30. I think he means flying it but maybe he means on the back of a truck. What would viewers find more interesting him trying to fly the raptor out west or...

    I am pretty sure if you called pan pan a controller would just treat you as an emergency or even declare you one. I have had emergencies declared for me over pretty trivial things like loosing an alternator.

    And now he knows we all listen to LIVE ATC so he may develop a hesitancy to use the words emergency.

    Looks like he didn't land on the runway he took off from. I am wondering/expecting there was some sort of problem. Does anyone know why he didn't make a video of the last flight/emergency?

    GP-5 or Polen Special similar designs.

    Harmon Rocket is about the only thing I can think of that you could build. There is a Harmon Rocket III out there if you want a single seat. I think only 2 have been built.

    He has not been 100% radio silence. He posted these 2 comments recently on his youtube channel. I am eagerly awaiting his next video but I do find it odd it has taken so long. Usually he posts video the following day of a flight. Just so you guys all don't wet your pants... I had a low oil...
