I have been rit dying my r60 struts black, but now it is time to by a set in black. Who sells them, anyone seen them? I would prefer plastic, but might think about carbon.

Don't come off the throttle untill you see your GOD!

Rit dye is a clothing dye that works on nylon and other plastics. I have yet to get it to work on my skids though. The Fins and tail blades dye perfectly.

Raydee, try boiling the skids in plain water first, then into the dye, right from the pot. I use the TuffStruts also. The stockRap60 gear is too soft. Tail is always at risk. Especially on the long tailboom version.

Do the Tuff Struts fit without modification?

You first drill the Raptor frames through, so you can use a 3mm cap screw and locknut. Drill the holes through the TuffStruts where they need to be. Well worth the effort. I also use the plastic TuffStrut spacers, under the rear of the frames, to help keep the tail up.
