So now the SE has been out for a while i was just wondering what people thought of this heli as a 3d machine..

what is it like when it is being consistantly abused day after day??

are you just using the standard SE kit or have you upgraded any parts??

are you using the dampers supplied or using the carbon extreme dampers??

any other info that you think is usefull please tell us

i will be using a OS 91 C-Spec(standard no pump) and MP2 and 30% so what ratio you guys using.

just would like the comments from every one as i am thinking of getting one.. at the moment i am flying a millennium mk 2 and would like to hear from any one that has flown both machines if possible..


thanks in advance

I only have a few gallons through mine so far, but I would have to say, it is performing superbly. I crashed last weekend and it looks like parts are going to be hard to find because ACE is not shipping many of them yet. I am actually buying a used STD 90 Raptor from a guy just to get the parts to get my SE going again.

It flys incredibly stable yet has some pretty good 3-d right out of the box on the standard set up. I did end up doing some things (mainly lighter paddles) to get the cyclic response a little snappier but other than that, it is the stock kit, no real need for upgrades at all.

SE kit...

Added the metal arms and cage on the head.. the cage was needed, the arms just to look pretty.

All stock except for that.

Running the red dampeners

8.27 ratio (the new white gear)

It has required no matience.... it just keeps getting better with time...

I am running the ys engine with hatori and thinking about droping to the 8.45 ratio soon, as it think it will like it better.

I have also flown the Milli2's (look in my gallery) They were and always will be very nice and stable machines... I though I was going to sacrafice some of the durability with changing to the raptors last season, I am glad I was wrong! Build it right the first time and it will give you many many trouble free flights. The R90's are much more responsive for 3D than the millis.

thanks for the replys

i am glad you replyed Jeff as i have used your gallery alot to set my millie2 up so thanks for that..
i have had alot of trouble with the millie 2 latley i have had the main shaft bend in flight and over the last couple of months i have snapped 2 heads of the millie so i have decided it is time for a change and like the look of the SE ..

the fly bar upgrade ..does that just make it into a full rectangle rather than just 2 arms sticking out(just so i no what part on the head i am looking at)

the 8.27ratio and new white gear does that come in the SE kit??


thanks for the help

PS... me too!

Forgot to mention that I also upgraded the flybar control arms to the full box.... it also moves the pivot point on the input a little closer in therefore giving a little bit quicker response...

And yes, it does make it into a full rectangle.

The white gear is an upgrade....

Sorry, but I have no idea on the part number. look it up on an online site like heliproz or onlyraptors

You can always use any 90 std part as a replacement if the se specific part is not available.
