"The MYT Engine has so much power it can allow elephants and brick houses to fly."
-- Raphial Morgado

We launched this campaign after receiving a favorable response in a poll posted on October 28 at PESN asking how much people would be willing to contribute to this project. In the first 5 days following that, 176 people chimed in, with 22 people saying they would contribute "more than $1000", 10 saying they would contribute "500 or more," etc... The total tally was $33,580, as of 8:45 pm Mountain time, November 1.

My recommendation to Raphial was to go for a much lower number than $100k, since people tend to think "bottomless pit" when they see a number like that. However, he wanted to go with a goal that would actually accomplish something substantial.

So, those of you who pledged, we're leaning on you to follow through and help prime this pump!

Project Overview

by Sterling D. Allan, PES Network, Inc. and NEST, in association with Raphial Morgado of Angel Labs LLC.


Since 2001, Raphial Morgado, who, to me, is like hanging around with Leonardo da Vinci, has been working on an advanced engine that is actually very simple in its components.

As we've been reporting on this over the years, we've summarized it saying: 

"The MYT™ Engine features 40 times higher power-to-weight ratio, low parts count, low maintenance, high mechanical efficiency, and low pollution. It is poised to benefit applications including airplanes, ships, 18 wheelers, SUVs, passenger cars, and even down to carry-on power generators. The MYT™ Engine, as a pump/compressor, also exceeds existing pumps/compressors in providing massive pressure, volume, and flow; all in one unit."

His patented 14-inch engine, which was the star of the show at the 2006 LA Auto Show, and First-Prize winner in the 2006 Emhart-NASA Tech Briefs "Create the Future" Design Contest, ran on diesel-related fuels for its first 9 months before Raphial converted it to run on pressurized air (so it could be run indoors at the LA Auto show). 

It has performed well in dynamometer testing, outputting 814 foot-pounds of torque with just 150 psi of input air, at 800 rpm.  

Last year, Lieutenant Colonel Brett Laboo of the Australian Department of Defense published a comparative analysis of Raphial's Massive Yet Tiny engine, which packs by far the most powerful punch for its small size, compared to other diesel engines in the world.

But what is most exciting about the MYT™ Engine is that it enables Aviation 2.0 -- an advance in aviation so profound that it deserves that quantum leap label. No one else is even seriously thinking about such a name, so last week, after my visit to Raphial, I was able to grab the domain name: Aviation2.com to forward to our PESWiki feature index on Raphial's work, then later to hand it over to him when his team gets a website built for it. 

Since I was a kid, I've been wondering: "When will we ever get our jet packs? When are we going to get our flying cars?"

Raphial's technology makes that possible because its power-to-weight ratio is so high. When just one 25-pound, six-inch in diameter engine can produce 200 horsepower (nearly 150 kilowatts equivalent), now you've got something you can strap on your back, connect to some propellers, and go airborne, with a range of 100 miles on one 1.5-gallon tank of fuel. If your cargo is fuel (diesel-related, including biodiesel, vegetable oil, and other biofuels that have lubricity), then you could fly around for a couple of days. The Angel Flight Pack™ is expected to weight only 48 pounds, dry weight (1.5 gallons of fuel weighs ~11.25 lbs or 5.1 kg), with dimensions of 24 inches wide, 24 inches high, and 9 inches thick. Thanks to the pioneering work of Martin Aircraft, the U.S. FAA has imposed a speed limit of 62 mph for such craft. Doing the math on this -- 100 miles/1.5 gallons -- the Angel Flight Pack™ would have a mileage rating of 67 mpg (US).

Raphial's got it all designed: including the propellers/fans/compressor blades (he's been improving that design for about 26 years), the Angel Flight Pack™, the Stationary Activated Parachute™ (SAP), the flight suit. He's also designed an 8-passenger VTOL, which he says could fly at Mach 1.4, powered by two 14" MYT engines -- no landing gear or wings required, further cutting down on costs, fuel efficiency, and maintenance, while increasing safety. He also has plans for flying cargo ships that would have the payload of a ship with the speed of a plane, using the "ground effect" flying above the ocean.

Obviously, the guy is an extreme futurist; and this has made it difficult for him to find funding to roll out his ideas into the marketplace. His engine doesn't just increase power and fuel efficiency by a few percentage points, it does it by several-fold. It's radical in the extreme.

He's been waiting for years for the funds to be able to finish the 6" engine, which would make the JetPack possible. Three years ago, he lost his ranch, where he had a 3,000 square foot machine shop with several employees.

But he hasn't given up. He's spent that last nine months working up the plans for "Aviation 2.0™", which includes:
1) The Jetpack, with one 6" engine
2) The MYT Turbofan
3) The VTOL 8 passenger craft that would fly at supersonic speeds, with two 14" engines
4) The express mail UAV with two 6" engines

The primary thing that has been holding all this back is that he hasn't been able to secure the funds to complete his 6" engine.

People have tried to donate to him over the years, but he declines, since receiving contributions is against the way he was raised. But now that he realizes he can offer perks that give something to people in exchange for their funds, he has decided to go ahead and use this crowdfunding route to obtain the funds he needs.

You want to help him reach his goal? You want Jetpacks, VTOL, flying cars, flying ships, super-efficient and powerful engines?

 

Perks

You will notice that the perks include the opportunity to contribute in exchange for products that will result from Angel Lab's success. Those expected products, already designed by Raphial, include a safe bicycle, motorcycle, SAP, 6" engine, 14" engine, JetPack, deposit toward a VTOL; as well as scale models of all these designs. These items are elaborated below.

You can select the perks from the column in the right.

 

Fundraising Goals

Tier I Goal: $120,000 minimum to finish the 6" engine and file patents on it.


If this campaign happens to go well over the initial goal, which is my hope and expectation, then here is what Raphial has in mind:

Tier II Goal: Additional $200,000 raised

- build fully functional Angel Flight Pack™ prototype with flight suit
- build the Stationary Activated Parachute™ (SAP)
- file patents on these

The completed Angel Flight Pack™ will entail laminations, carbon fiber, high tech materials, part of which Raphial invented, including high-strength, low weight core for laminations.

Tier III Goal: Additional $100,000 raised

- 1/5-scale VTOL functional prototype to demonstrate to the DOD (in queue with appointment) 
- file patents on this

Funding Overhead

4% will go to Indiegogo if the $125k minimum goal is met. If not, they retain 9%.
3% goes to PayPal
5% goes to us at PES Network / New Energy Systems Trust (NEST)
12% Total overhead. The balance goes to Raphial, who will use it to accomplish the goals stated.

What if Goal is Not Met?

The raised funds will go to Raphial, minus the overhead, and Raphial will use those funds to get closer to the completion of the 6" engine.

 

MYT™ Engine Power


In this trademark photo, Raphial shows his 14-inch motor in comparison to the engine it could replace.


The thing that makes Aviation 2.0™ possible is the tremendous power-to-weight ratio that Raphial's Massive Yet Tiny (MYT) Engine is capable of. It has high torque and efficiency from low to high rpms. This makes it ideal for aviation, not to mention all the other engine applications it can fill, from vehicles to generators. "I have so much power I can allow elephants and brick houses to fly." To give you engineers a sampling of the kind of power this thing is capable of, with just 150 psi of input air, at 800 rpm, the 14" engine produced 814 foot-pounds of torque.

The MYT™ Engine features 40 times higher power-to-weight ratio, low parts count, low maintenance, high mechanical efficiency, and low pollution. It is poised to benefit applications including airplanes, ships, 18 wheelers, SUVs, passenger cars, and even down to carry-on power generators. The MYT™ Engine, as a pump/compressor, also exceeds existing pumps/compressors in providing massive pressure, volume, and flow; all in one unit.

What is astonishing to the engineers that have worked with Raphial is that the first 14" engine he built is still in operation, having been converted from running on fuel for 6 months (not continuous) to running on compressed air; and is now being converted back to running on fuel. That a first prototype would last so long is astonishing to them.

Modern turbofans produce up to 90% thrust from the fan and 10% from the jet engine core. This core could be replaced by the MYT Engine, which would remove the heat signature and vastly improve the economy as well as power. Such aircraft could fly in and out of airports 24 hours, not having to stop late at night because of noise. Another of Raphial's inventions is a quiet muffler that doesn't impede flow. This could also be patented and licensed out to many other applications.

During dinner with me on October 22, Raphial had the flash of inspiration that the MYT engine could be built as a hybrid engine, using half of it to run on fuel, and the other half to compress air, which could then be stored in a pressure tank to be used to run a compressed air engine such as Angelo DiPietro's EngineAir.

The development of the 6" engine -- the focus of this present crowdfunding campaign -- is a primary goal for Raphial because of the number of applications it will open up, including the Angel Flight Pack™, vehicle power (small cars, trucks, planes), generators for business (150 kilowatts), VTOL airmail express UAVs.

More About Angel Flight Pack

Raphial's Jetpack, alone, would be a crowning achievement of any large company, not to mention a lone inventor. Not only will his Angel Flight Pack™, as it is trademarked, enable human flight, but it will enable payload -- such as carry a second person, or extra fuel for extended range (if the 100-mile range of the standard tank is not enough), or emergency supplies. And it only weighs 45 pounds, so you don't need a parking stall to park it, but you can carry it with you and set it next to you in a restaurant, or at your cubicle at work. He calls it the "hot rod" for its power, versatility, and maneuverability.

The Angel Flight Pack™ would be powered by one 6" MYT™ engine, called the MYT-6™.

Finally, we will have our Jetpacks that cartoons of old got us excited about. However, FAA regulations in the US will limit their speed to 62 miles per hour. But when you can travel "as the bird flies," with no stop lights, stop signs, or traffic, then short-distance travelling will become a snap. Three hours stuck in traffic in large cities will become a 10 to 20 minute jaunt in a Jetpack. In addition to the time savings, think of the fuel savings. 100 miles on 1.5 gallons of fuel, which could include vegetable oil, biodiesel, and other renewable fuels, in any combination. 

Today, when we think of travel, we think of roads and congestion. But with jetpacks, not only are you not limited to a narrow road, you're not limited to a set elevation, so even if everyone in a large city was flying all at once, the pure density of people would not be that much. It would be like navigating a roller skating rink. Those who fly faster, can see what's ahead of them and avoid it. Likewise, people can see oncoming craft in well enough time to avoid it. Of course JetPack users will need to stay out of commercial flight heights and lanes.

Thanks to the pioneer work of companies like Martin Aircraft and Moller Skycar, the certification process has been developed. It may be that approaching this as an experimental kit will streamline the regulations.


Isn't it about time we got these?


In 1965, two years after I was born, the Bell Rocket Belt was the first JetPack to ever be flown freely, without being tethered (James Bond film, Thunder Ball).

In 1984, Bill Suitor flew the first ever civilian-built JetPack at the Olympics in Los Angeles opening ceremonies.

JetLev's water-powered, tethered JetPack released in 2011, has shown the modern commercial market interest in this capability, even if just for sporting.

Other companies have developed jetpacks, but they have been inadequate for size, duration, tethering. These limits are resolved with Raphial's Angel Flight Pack design, which is small enough to fit through a door, light enough to carry, and with a range of 100 miles (unless your cargo is fuel, in which you have a two day range).

Think of the new sports, travel and exploring opportunities that will open up -- being able to venture to those remote crevices of the planet that were heretofore inaccessible -- not to mention the traffic benefits.

His Angel Flight Pack™ engenders safety, mimicking a bird carrying prey, with another invention -- an umbrella parachute that deploys if needed -- for safe landing, augmented by the cushioned-sole shoes he designed. He calls the umbrella parachute design SAP, for "Stationary Activated Parachute", and will be licensing that separately as well.

Here is a chart Raphial worked up comparing his Angel Flight Pack™ to the Martin JetPack.

Note: The 290 lbs gross weight represents Maximum takeoff weight. Martin Aircraft did not provide a dry weight in their specs. The Angel Flight Pack take-off weight breakdown is:
-  Flight Pack... Dry weight ...............................45 lbs.
-  Fuel weight @ 1.5 Gallons.............................12-15 lbs.
-  S.A.P. ( Stationary Activated Parachute).........5-7 lbs.
-  Accessories .....................................................15 App. lbs.
- Pilot ................................................................208 lbs
____________________________________________
- Total...Maximum Takeoff Weight......................290 lbs.

 

VTOL and Turbofan

He also showed me a model he built years ago to illustrate his concept for a VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) craft that would enable the human occupants to be floated by parachute to safety if something bad happened to the flying portion of the craft. And it would facilitate pre-loading and post-un-loading separate from the flying portion. (You can see it up on the shelf at the end of the Formula 1 Race Car Design video.)

His VTOL could be applied to a mini-van or a cargo ship. Wings and landing gear are not needed, along with their complex engineering, cost, maintenance, weight -- and added expense of fuel to include them. And that's not to mention the fact that the MYT-Engine-powered Turbofan that makes this possible consumes far less fuel than the jet engine that it replaces. Conservatively, we're talking three to five times less fuel (and even less pollution because of the efficient burn).

The fan/compressor/propeller design is something Raphial has been improving over 26 years. It's brilliant. He showed me how easily it spins as he waved it back and forth in front of him. It turned easily just by blowing on it, even though the resistance of its size normally would have made it difficult to turn otherwise.

40% of a commercial aircraft's take-off weight is fuel. Imagine if you could drastically reduce that. The next major expense in commercial aircraft is in tire replacement and landing gear maintenance. This would also be removed in Raphial's VTOL craft. Two thirds of the maintenance cost would be slashed in his craft.

In his supersonic, Mach 1.4, 8-Passenger, executive jet replacement VTOL design that he showed me, the engine would be fixed, and he would use vectoring or a nozzle to deflect the airflow in the desired direction of thrust. I'm not an aeronautical engineer, but from what knowledge I have, I would say that his design is plausible and brilliantly simple.

Four of his craft could be parked in the hanger space presently used for one Gulfstream 550. It could fit in a 2-car garage.

Here is a chart Raphial worked up comparing his 8-Passenger VTOL with an executive jet. (PDF)

/End of Comparison

An early application Raphial wants to tackle is to fit a peaceful drone for delivering mail rapidly from point to point for important transactions. It would be fitted with two 6" engines and be a VTOL craft, to help get the world acclimated to the new technology approach.

Here are a few supplemental documents of relevance:

 

Flying Cargo Ships

Imagine small cargo ships the size of a fat yacht flying 500 miles per hour across the ocean, 50 to 500 feet above the surface of the flat ocean, made far more efficient because of the "ground effect" that increases the compression efficiency that helps lift the craft because it has something to push against. Rather than cargo taking 2+ months to go from extreme continent to continent stretches, it would take 48 hours. The newest cargo ship designs that can carry 17,000 shipping containers but only travel 18 mph become obsolete. And you can go direct from point to point rather than having to follow established shipping lanes that take advantage of natural ocean currents. And, where the land is not punctuated by cliffs, large hills, and mountains, you could fly inland as well.

The cargo industry is a 13 trillion dollar per year industry, and Raphial's technology completely revolutionizes the entire industry. Ninety percent of world commerce involves cargo ships. Imagine if the shipping time and expenses were drastically cut, not by a few percentage points, but 30+ fold on the time, and 3- to 5-fold on the cost.

Ever since Howard Hughes flew his monster craft on the ground effect 50 years ago, the Russians have been working on this concept. They call it Ekranoplan. Do a Google Image search and you'll see at a glance what Raphial is talking about.  But with the MYT Engine as the driver, you now have the power density needed for this concept to really take flight. 

Raphial owns a 58-foot catamaran that is a one-of-a-kind model that travels 140 mph due in part to this effect. At 50 mph, the body of the catamaran begins to rise above the water, leaving only its two lower portions in the water. (Click the images for enlargement.)

 

Some of you might be wondering why Raphial doesn't just sell this catamaran. Raphial has tried many times to sell it. At this point, he is able to use the catamaran as collateral.

Another thing that motivated his quest to traverse water without going through it was the time he spent on a destroyer escort ship during the Vietnam War, where he manned the Anti-Submarine Rocket Launcher. Mother Nature can be very unforgiving when you're out on the water for months at a time, unable to steer around storms.

 

Aviation 2.0™

"Aviation 2.0™", as Raphial has coined it, includes four subsidiaries that Raphial will sell for a 20% share in the stock:
1) The Jetpack, with one 6" engine
2) The MYT Turbofan
3) The VTOL 8 passenger craft that would fly at supersonic speeds, with two 14" engines
4) The mail drone with two 6" engines

The flying cargo ships are not included in that 3.1 Billion dollar package, for which he has a group of interested investors in Saudi Arabia, but he would prefer to sell these subsidiaries to a US company.

The flying cargo ships with the "payload of a ship with the speed of a plane" will be a separate subsidiary. Presently, 90% of world commerce is reliant on ocean cargo, making this a 13 trillion dollar a year industry. "Nothing will compare to this industrial revolution that's about to happen."

All this was hatched in the past nine months, complete with financials, PPMs, and other analysis. It's not of the same caliber as if Boeing, with their huge budget and teams, had done it, but it is a remarkable achievement for a sole inventor with his small circle of faithful associates.

Raphial had hoped that the next story he did with us would be of him demonstrating the fully-developed Jetpack, powered by the MYT Engine, but he's grown weary of waiting for the big money to come in.

About Raphial Morgado

Raphial is an inventive genius akin to Leonardo da Vinci, and a very talented machinist. He also enjoys singing, going to a karaoke bar each week.

As a child, Raphial, now 62, dreamt of what we now refer to as "jetpacks" which enable humans to fly around with the freedom of a bird. "We're a superior species, why can't we fly like they do?" was a thought that has stuck with him, becoming a major theme of his life, consuming his interest and guiding his interactions. 

But as a prolific inventor, that isn't the only thing that has captured his creative thought processes. He claims to have built over 100 different prototype designs so far. And though none of them have hit the marketplace yet, that isn't because they are not viable. Often, it is because they are referred to as "disruptive technologies". And the minor inventions get overshadowed by the major ones.

He won't even let me talk about the thing that has me most excited, by far. If you think JetPacks, VTOL, turbofan, flying cargo ships are awesome, and the (bio) fuel and environmental savings would be a wonderful bonus; it gets even better than that -- much better. But he values his life. Maybe he'll at least let me say that it has to do with harnessing solar energy to power the engine so that stopping for fuel becomes almost unnecessary.

Not everything Raphial has invented is disruptive technology. He showed me a roller mechanism that he built for doing ab workouts, that keeps the knees off the floor -- a very simple design he came up with when he had knee problems.

Descending from German (his actual family name is Franz), Spanish, and Filipino roots, Raphial grew up in a shop in the Philippines involved in bus transportation, where they built busses from the chassis on up, including carpentry, plumbing, machining. He's a hands-on, jack-of-all-trades. "There are very few things I can't do".

He grew up in a manufacturing machine shop with his Dad, learning techniques from some of the best.

When Raphial went to the awards banquet to receive first prize at the 2005 Emhart-NASA Tech Briefs "Create the Future" Design Contest for his MYT Engine that makes Aviation 2.0™ possible, the security detail at the door thought he was making fun of them when he showed up with just four people (one of whom was the VP of Exxon-Mobile). Lockheed Martin, with their 16 people, were in second place; and Boeing, with a similar number of proud, representative team members, were in third that year. By the time the award banquet was over, all attendees agreed that Raphial should have received the Grand Prize. [Memo. On editing, Raphial noted: "I checked the NASA tech brief publication and could not find Lockheed Martin or Boeing as winners. I do remember, that's what the doorman told me...maybe they sponsored or co-worked with the winners."]

I'm thinking that a Nobel Prize would be more appropriate.

So chalk it up to cognitive dissonance -- people can't believe that a lone inventor could possibly be so prolific and profound. They forget about history's heroes like Nikola Tesla, who brought us AC power, the inductive motor, radio, wireless communication, X-ray, and much, much more -- the foundational bedrock of modern civilization. Still, 100 years later, we haven't figured out how to implement the free energy technologies that Tesla presented in the second half of his life. History books hardly mention him. He's still anathema in college text books, where he gets barely a footnote.

As a sampling of this same phenomenon with Raphael, several years ago, 50 farmers signed a petition to Governor Schwarzenegger in support of this MYT Engine technology, saying it could help salvage the California economy, but the petition was ignored.

Raphial told me a story about how after he received the first million to build the first 14-inch engine, he had an investor ready to pay the next ten million dollars. The investor said he would pay if he could get a ride in the Ford Focus that had been retrofitted to run on the engine. (Story) The investor had a huge smile on his face. But then he talked to one of Raphial's references who gave a lackluster review compared to what he expected, then the investor's associates wanted to have him invest the 10 million in a bank instead, which could then produce revenue which could be funneled to Raphial. Unfortunately, the bank failed, and all that money was lost.

The first thing Raphial did when I walked into his home was have me sign a non-disclosure agreement, because he has not-yet-patented inventions sitting around his house. His 17-year partner, Michelle, is resigned to the fact that the home is an extension of his workshop.

He showed me a bike design in which the seat is situated close to the ground, greatly increasing stability and safety -- something that is very important to him.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How sure are you that this 6" engine will work?
A.
It's just at matter of scaling the 14" engine down, which was shown to work, as you can see in the dynamometer reports and testimonial witness statements of the engineers who worked on the project, including the celebrated Louis J. Faix and Joe Buneto.

Q. Can you scale it down smaller?
A.
Presently, the 6" size is about the smallest we could go, given materials limitations. But further R&D and design improvements are likely to enable smaller engines yet.

Q. Why hasn't some automobile company implemented this yet?
A.
There are a lot of companies in line to be second, waiting for someone else to go first. Many companies have tried to work deals with Raphial, which fell through for one reason or another, usually having to do with undervaluing Raphial's package.

Q. How do you harness the heat?
A.
Proprietary

Q. Will there be problems from heat with the 6" engine being situated so close to the JetPack passenger?
A.
The flight suit will be fitted with heat-deflection technology, but the air cooling from the environment should be sufficient to keep the engine from burning the passenger. In hotter climates or conditions, a cooling system may need to be added, which will diminish the cargo capacity of the JetPack and increase its weight.

Q. What scale will the models be?
A.
This will depend on the size of the full-scale version and the cost of making models at the time they are ready to be made. They are likely to be between 1/24 and 1/32.

Q. What makes Raphial's propellers/fans/compressor blades different?
A.
Proprietary, but it involves a larger surface area, also causing higher torque from nearer the rotation shaft.

Q. Why isn't Raphial offering the Fuel Atomizer as a perk and scale model?
A.
He wants to keep that proprietary for as long as possible, and keep it tied to the Angel Labs LLC suite of products, giving them that added advantage.

Q. Are you actually providing these things for sale?
A.
None of these products are available yet commercially. Most of them have not been patented yet. But once the funding to develop them has been received, the patents can be filed and they can be brought to market. The "perk" amounts listed are to be considered a contribution, not a payment in exchange for product. Once the products are available commercially, then Raphial will provide the products as a token of gratitude for the contribution made. This wording is to give some leeway in the time-frame for patent filing. Once an official "sale" takes place, then the inventor has one year in which to file a patent, after which he is disallowed. Hence the wording: "(Provided as a perk in exchange for donation)"

Q. Why is PES / NEST Receiving 5% of funds raised?
A.
PES (and it's recent spin-off, NEST) has been helping Raphial get his story out there. Raphial appreciates the work PES/NEST does, not just for himself, but for other inventors.

Q. How do you raise funds by collecting money for products to be delivered?
A.
The moneys raised now will go toward the goals stated above. The accomplishment of those goals will attract investment capital. The crowdfunding success helps them gauge the market interest in the product.

Q. What happens if Raphial dies before this is completed?
A.
Raphial has conveyed his knowledge to a few other people (identities confidential), who should be able to assist Angel Labs in completing their tasks.

Q. Can I buy stock in Angel Labs LLC or any of its subsidiary projects?
A.
Presently there are no public offerings (though the subsidiaries are likely to create such offerings), but qualified investors can invest, beginning with amounts of $25,000. Please call +1 (916) 370-0886 or +1 (209) 224-1891.

 

The Impact

I'm always telling people, "Free Energy is all about Freedom". Imagine the increased freedom that would come from ...

  • JetPack personal flight capability, eliminating gridlock, or making it moot; increasing exploration capabilities
  • VTOL flying car transport at Mach 1.4
  • Reducing shipping times from 2 months to 2 days, totally revolutionizing the shipping industry
  • Savings on fuel expenses and significant reduction in pollution
  • 24-hour flight capability due to lower noise of VTOL craft not breaking noise ordinances

Not to mention the benefits of some of Raphial's other innovations ...

  • Increased safety of flight
  • Increased safety of bicycles
  • Increased safety (and power) of motorcycles
  • Knee-pain-free ab workout

There are more benefits that I can't mention yet, which make the above seem pale in comparison.

For Raphial, he says: "The thing that I'm most excited about is that it will bring real jobs to the US. This is going to employ a lot of people. It could turn the economy around and bring prosperity."

"As I've always said: My success is your success"; and that doesn't just apply to me.

 

Risk Factors:

There are a few significant risks involved here.

  • Even though contingencies are in place, if something were to happen to Raphial, the projects would certainly be slowed. This is a disruptive technology. There are other inventors who were killed, threatened, or bought out, or otherwise compromised for less disruptive technologies.
  • If this project isn't adequately funded, it's possible that it won't be developed, in which case, the products will not be delivered.
  • If the project is funded, and product development takes place, it's possible that the products will not perform as expected, and won't be available for commercial roll-out.
  • It's possible that the products will cost much more than what's expected at this time.
  • Many of his technologies have not yet had patents filed, since Raphial has been postponing that as long as possible, since the clock starts ticking once the filings are submitted.
  • Raphial claims to have a way to handle the heat from the engine, which otherwise would require a large radiator system; but no such data has yet been produced from an actual system, since this is a newer design that hasn't yet been built. The new 6" engine would be the first to implement this.
