    10/23 Raptor Video

    Is there a way to reduce TVs ? @rv6ejguy @Malish You are talking about restricting the RPM range. How common is this when designing a new aircraft ?

    Chemical Exposure Discussion

    That's a good point. We often forget to wear respiratory PPE despite it being one of the most important. I worked on huge CNC High Speed Milling machines that produced a thick cloud of cutting oil vapors (carcinogenic). We were told to wait for the ventilation system to completely filter the...

    10/23 Raptor Video

    Thank you very much for those two videos ! I watched the first one and was waiting for the second to come out. They are both very interesting !

    D-Motor Supercharged Version

    Thank you for this thread , I just discovered D-motor. I heard about them before but never looked up their website. The extra power really makes it attractive ! They don't talk about the TBO though. Can we expect a shorter time before overhaul ? Off topic question : I've always been told that...

    10/23 Raptor Video

    I've seen in his 2 last videos that his wool strings seem a little long.(Especially in the last video) Is there a standard length for those or a calculation to know the required length ?

    Why battery-powered aircraft will never have significant range

    7 hour range ? With AC, Cabin heat and pressurization ? Sorry couldn't resist...

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    @pictsidhe Could you define TLAR design please? Can't find a definition online.

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    @cheapracer Thank you for the link. I understand what you say. I never said the airplane was any good or had good performance. In my eyes this airplane is a mess and I don't expect the project to lead anywhere. There is no comparison possible between a Velocity and the Raptor. (If I had to...

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    Yes but I find it encouraging to see the plane "take off". The creator and his decisions aside, it's positive to see the airplane actually fly (instead of driving around). I too have concerns about the claims but that would be the result of Peter's actions. What's really scary right now, is...

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    @Doggzilla From the research I've done so far and with the help of people from this forum, I think that's not how canards work. It's not about deflection but instead about lift generated by the canard. If you exceed max AoA, the canard will stall and the nose will drop not matter the...

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    The Rafale has a fully moving canard/control canard I believe if that's what you mean. Isn't there two types of canards : lifting canard and control canard ? I think wrong terminology is being used here

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    Does Peter use full power on every high speed taxi ? Seeing all those comments on the redrive that say that it won"t hold, I'm surprised there hasn't been more issues with it. I feel like problems would have appeared by now if he used full throttle every time. Does anyone know ?

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    Could it be that the shimmy is induced by bad front wheel design ? Not enough trail between wheel axis and front gear axis ?

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    Hello, And after watching the latest video, it appears he will also be taking care of the flight testing himself ! All those ground tests seem pretty pointless to me. Hardly any interesting data comes out of these tests and I feel like Peter doesn't know what he is looking for. Even after...
