Just scanning through their latest video (Designing the Raptor), it seems like their goals are slightly better for a basic fpv wing, nothing contributing to the proposed USA flight, but still unrealistic.

In summary, its a basic flying wing, 25 degree sweep on each wing, 48" wingspan, a single 2200mah lipo, and 9g servos (along with the other rc components). The goal seems to be +15 minutes at +50mph on this setup, which is possible, but the guy just isn't capable of it IMHO (not saying that I could).
