Terrible News for Stream Team

Super sad news about a fire last night at the Stream Team workshop. This is where the CX5 DLG's and other projects are made and the fire devastated materials, molds and more. There's more info below from Rollo. He also setup a fundraiser so we can all pitch in and stand together to help Laurynas rebuild and get back up and running. Link for the fundrasier is below so please pitch in and donate if you can.

From Rollo:

"Last night, one of us got hit by a tragedy. My dear friend and owner of Stream Team, Laurynas had to see a big part of his life‘s work burst into flames. Good news is that no one got injured as it happened at 1 am in the morning. The fire brigade and the police could not establish the cause of the fire yet, but it’s a substantial damage that endangers the company’s existence. The whole carbon and rohacell stock got lost as well as the packing material like boxes, etc. The fire also hit a new section of the company where a new project was about to become alive. The molds have been affected and we don’t know how bad they have been deformed by the high temperature.

Unfortunately, the fire insurance only covers the damage around the building but not the rest of the company’s values. I want to help Laurynas and his Team as quickly as possible. It‘s not only about their jobs that I want to save, but also helping a man who is so passionate to our hobby and big hearted when it’s about being generous donating planes for raffles that helped aero clubs all over the world supporting their pilots. Please let’s stand together for Laurynas and let’s make it happen that he can continue to build flying dreams for us. Thank you a lot for your help, guys - let‘s get this fundraiser started."

Thanks a lot guys, every help is appreciated…

At the moment, Laurynas works his way through the mess with a high pressure cleaner. Also demolded a wing out of the new molds - completely melted..
Her‘s a little overview and status quo

Contact Rollo via PN or use the bank account of Laurynas where you pay your invoices.

Unfortunately not…I am an amateur concerning croudfunding.

Please use [email protected]

All funds will go directly via bank transfer to Laurynas with additional screenshots of the Paypal transfers (and the included goid wishes )
Direct Paypal to Lithuania costs an extra 6.5%!!! fee, which is why I make that little diversion.

Thanks a ton, guys

Got it, we do not want Elon Musk to clip any help for Laurynas away!

Will transfer funds to you.

Hope he can recover from this blow, please send him my best wishes!

After almost quitting yesterday, Laurynas is full of fresh energy after seeing this huge support from our community. Hands are dirty but unfortunately also the molds…Long path ahead but with good faith now

What terrible news! I can only hope Laurynas can rebuild better and stronger.

Transferring to the EU from the UK (and probably any countries outside the EU), I find using Wise.com to be the most efficient as it uses a very good conversion rate and the fees are very small. Rollo, perhaps you could share Laurynas's bank details via DM from those of us that want to direct transfer?

I use wise to pay for the kitchens that import and have been for 6yrs. It is has saved me a lot of money!
