That’s just your opinion based on old physics. Peter is an innovator, so those rules don’t apply to him.

Maybe he can use a perpetual power generator and have unlimited range.

Friday and Saturday appear to be two of his longer flights - 1h 15m and 1h 23m. That was nice to see.

When he mentions the new company making improvements - is he selling the aircraft and plans to a company on the West Coast?

"The YouTube revenue on this is not worth my time." - It will be sad if these are his last videos.

The YouTube revenue hasn’t been worth his time for 6 years. I suspect it has more to do with this being the part of the project where everyone realizes this isn’t the plane they were told, and the builder realizes he’s going to need a day job again. His voice shakes at the end of the video when he says he’ll see us in the next video, like he knows this will end soon.

What’s that quote about old soldiers?

If you were making a plane expected to go over 250 kts, but it didn’t have enough power to do more than ~130 in level flight at 5000 feet, wouldn’t you be a little interested to see how it would handle at higher speeds, and therefore leave the power up for a while when you start downhill? Very shortly after Peter starts a decent for landing he slows the plane down. Sometimes to less than when he was doing lazy eights. Why do that?

145 kts IAS is 250 true at 25,000

But that takes a heck of a lot more power than the 130 KTAS at 5,000 that he's demonstrated so far.

If you have hooking problems at 5000 feet you will never get to FL 250.

Maybe you should tell him that it is cooler at altitude and that might help keep his engine cooler.
...then there are those pesky molecules.

Hmm, not quite.

145 KCAS (assume KIAS is the same) is 214 KTAS.

Handy place to calculate these things:

Where's my e6b?! but my point was just in response to someone who asked why he wasn't putting it in a dive to see how it was gonna handle 250 kts.

I'd be afraid that could end very badly based on the slop we've seen in the controls.
