For sale is my beloved Thunder Tiger A109. I have been flying this heli for over 5 years now and it is a beautiful flyer. The fuse was purchased by me new and I first installed my Raptor 90 mechs into it. After a few smoky, vibration filled flights I decided to convert it to electric. I found a conversion thread for R-90's on RR and it worked great. I have included a few pictures of the conversion and the entire mechanics prior to test flying. Soon after the E conversion came the FBL conversion. I obtained a cheap (but very good) Skookum 360 unit to go along with the 401 tail gyro. The Raptor main shaft was cut down slightly to fit a T-rex 700 FBL head. The rest is history. I did have a hard landing from about 15 feet when the motor/esc burned up. Not sure which went first but she landed hard and of course the fuse got beat up a little. I had it repaired and repainted and got the nitro muffler holes filled in the bottom as well. A new motor/esc and I was back in business. Power is regulated from an Outrage 3600 2s lipo (yes older lipo but holding up fine) through an Arizona regulator with pin switch. Main motor power comes from 2 Turnigy 6s 5000 45c batteries. Now the only thing is, these batteries can't be removed for charging. This may be a red flag for some, but I have never run these down past 45% and always charged at 1c. They are still strong and give an 8 minute flight with 45-50% remaining. Sometime you get good batteries, sometimes you don't. These have performed flawlessly for me. Nav lighting is an SLS system with side position, top and bottom strobe, and tail strobe. A search/landing light comes on when the gear is down. I will include the full R90 fly bared head with Align paddles if the desire to convert it back is yours. It can be done without removing the mechanics from the fuselage, but you will need a new main shaft. This is BNF with a Jr 921 receiver and one DSM2 sat installed. $600.00 Firm. ( I will pull the receiver & sat, Skookum and 401 gyro. Add your own FBL controller. $500) Local pickup only. I will deliver/demo this heli within one hour of Rocky Mount for serious buyers.

No kit. The motor mount is just aluminum plate. The coupling and 5mm shaft for the pinion came from Stock Drive products. You can find a conversion thread somewhere here on RR.

Thanks Don.

Sale on hold as I strip several things from it. Will be available later, semi naked, and cheaper.
