#2 Are they just getting a few kinks out or is this thing a lemon?

#4 It's a lemon. Overly complex and a few steps too far. Won't be long before one of these things falls out of the sky a burning mass of carbon fiber.

#5 I suspect a falling mass of carbon, but due to catastophic structural failure to undetected subsurface delaminations in the carbon fiber plies.

They need to rename this thing, but 'Edsel' has already been used.
