    Again, it all depends on the wording in the LLC agreement.

    10/23 Raptor Video

    A $20,000 loss is a $20,000 loss whatever label you put on it. I didn’t respond to Peter’s proposal as I was not willing to take any more risk than the $65 processing fee to Escrow.com so I didn’t do any additional due diligence such as asking for a copy of the LLC agreement. I don’t know if he...

    The $20k “deposit holders” were $2k deposit holders who converted their refundable deposits into a $20,000 at risk equity investment. For this investment they received a guaranteed fixed price of $120,000 for a flyable Raptor, a .25% share in the Raptor llc and advanced in the queue for deliver...

    It would be negligent or incompetence to not test the wing spar Imo. Certainly any reputable Director of Engineering would have done a sand bag test of the wing spar. I didn’t see it in any of the videos maybe it was left out. Wasn’t Jeff Kerlo Director of Engineering? We could ask him.

    Scientists Turn CO2 Into Jet Fuel

    Nature already does that, there are called trees. Eats the CO2, releases the O2, stacks the C as cellulose in the form of wood.

    Raptor will never become what Peter intended as stated in his spec sheet. It’s like my 8yr old designing an airplane. Physics won’t allow it.

    Wrapping Fiberglass around Aluminum t increase strength?

    So back to your original question, I’m not sure what you mean by “help the integrity of the strength”? Do you mean increase strength or prevent corrosion or something else? Is the original strut/tube strong enough to meet the design loads? If it is then you may be adding weight without...

    Wrapping Fiberglass around Aluminum t increase strength?

    Put another way, imagine that you have a rubber band that can lift 1000 lbs and a steel cable that can lift 1000lbs. In theory you could lift 2000 lbs. In practice, the steel cable will stretch until it snaps well before the rubber band begins to load up.

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    As for the $65 it cost me, it was worth the entertainment value. As for the investors, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a suit but I don’t think there are any assets or value to recover. I’m sure there will be some that are angry if not at Peter then themselves.

    I’d be curious to see what Peter Sirpol could have done with the $+2.5 mil.

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    I don’t know why people misinterpret critical as hatred. I don’t hate Peter or his project but I’m pretty critical of most of what he has done because of the many glaring deficiencies. And why would any deposit holder be angry if they got their money back when they cancel their deposit?

    Those are the investors.

    Well, I cancelled my deposit several years ago. I know of another Capt that is in the process. I’d be curious how many others have also.
