Is it worth to change from a Rappy to a Sceadu? I only have an TT 50 Engine will it fit in the Sceadu?

That depends

The TT50 will fit, that's not an issue.

If you already have a raptor, there's no need to go through the expense.

If you want to try something different, do it, you won't regret it.

I switched a few years back and haven't regretted it.

I also switched from a 50- raptor to a EVO-50 and will never go back! But to be honest the change came because of a major crash I had with the Raptor. So a new kit was nessessary. Looking back I'm not sorry. The EVO has allowed me to fly MUCH better. Very stable, solid, Heli. I would not part with it. I also own a Fury Tempest FAI / 3-D head. That heli doesn't see much air time since I've been flying the EVO. I just can't help taking the EVO with me everytime I go flying. Maybe in the spring I'll fly the Fury more. But for now it's all EVO.

In my opinion there is no comparison. The Evo is the next step up in the progression. The Evo is certainly the best of the two.

I know it was the same for me. I thought my R50V2 was a good little heli until I bought my first Evo. Now I have two Evo's and couldn't be happier That first flight with a stable hover in about a 20mph cross wind was what did it for me.

Well, maybe I'd be a bit happier if I could also add an X-Spec to the hanger..........LOL.

Not being a Raptor owner, I just sold my Xcell 60 custom metal, and replaced with a Sceadu 50. (More for *couch* rebuild costs being very expensive on the Xcell)

What a model! I set it up as the manual stated, and didn't even need to adjust the tracking on the very first flight! Hover is really stable, but the S9252s make it very agile if required.

The only change I've made is that I've installed the Carbon Xtreme dampers, a header tank, a few frame braces, and an NHP fan shroud.

Our club now has 5 or 6 Sceadu now.

No regrets!

The Evo is worth it.

It is EXTREMELY durable and can take any kind of abuse. The only thing is that the spindles bend during hard 3d flight. Other than that, it is next to perfect.

I havent had the opportunity to own a Rappy 50, but I am sure it can handle just as much 3d.

Either helicopter is a good choice.

I wouldn't change unless you total the Raptor. The EVO is very good, I've had no problems so far. I had most, if not all, of the common problems on my V1 R50. However the V2 R50 seems very good also.

I own/fly both the EVO 50 and the Raptor 50V2. I like each pretty much the same. The EVO might have a 3D advantage, but the Raptor is my favorite to practice autos with.

Fly it like you stole it!

Well I got ...(yes you guess) Raptors..but I got an EVO too this past couple of weeks... 2 hovers...still figuring out the shakes... I had a hot start due to me (The moron) hooked up the link in the upper side and the throttle was reversed.. But it lasted 3 seconds at the most...

most of the liner was gone!!, it all dusty!! the WHOLE! heli was blue!! I ordered a new clutch bell almost had a heart attack $60 + dollars for a clutch bell??!!! Raptor is 15.00 + 7 for the pinion.. HIROBO most used aluminum from the MOON! $50.00 for the CLUTCH!!???? Then the heli should cost $200.00 if these two parts are over $100.00.

Have not be able to find the shakes.... Ordered too a new aluminum fan! install it today. Trying to install a metal washout base....the crappy plastic part on top , cracked.... well to make a long story short...called Heliproz again...ordered additional parts, have to wait until Tuesday 2nd day delivery to see if I am going to be able to burn the 3rd!!!!!!! tank on this thing!!!!!!

RAPTOR!! Yes you guess it still flyes like a rock!!!

I ordered liners so next Tuesday I will have a clutch bell and a Evo clutch with only 2 tanks for sale!!

OOPps I also forgot.. The thing is Tail heavy..had to put weights in front, which I change last nite to a 3000 BIG SUCKER NICAD to balance the "SUPERB" machine...

First of all, I guess no one ever told you that you could just replace the liner.

Second of all, If $60 scares you, then you'll never fly anything more than the rap.

Yes ..I know about the liners... BUT my first machines were Xcell and Futuras... those are expensive....but my point which you did not get..is that the EVO is a very similar machine to the raptor.., the production costs are NOT so different ...otherwise one would be $300.00 and the other $600.00 and that's not the case!. and by the way.. my raptors are MORE expensive than the evo....I have spent over $1,200.00 and have not been able to hover the 3rd tank without the machine shaking and moving thru the table!!!! after I start it...I was informed by other evo users that this is a common problem and that I have to dial the fan...

The raptor I turn it on and thats it!

And yes I have read the liners threads and all the problems with the dusty material ungluing from the bell...I know..I know!! Also there was no need for your sarcastic comment about the 60.00 dollars..didn't you read That I just order the parts..because I don't want to go thru the process of changing the liner... HINT HINT!! doesn't that give you an idea that I can afford it?

By the way ..your point with the link is WORTHLESS..that bell value is that!! with CNC block, heavy duty clutch liner and bearings..STILL THE EVO IS NOT WORTH 60.00!! ... I'm not scared with a $60.00 clutch bell YOU should be scared with my $325.00!! dollars Sullivan starter!! God Bless the IGNORE button... you are my first member...

Mr Hover,
We...Evo flyers and lovers of the machine really feel awfull about your experience. I think is best for you to fix the machine , sell it and concentrate on flying your favorite machine. No sense of fighting a lesser quality bird.
It is so amazing to me that the EVo has gained such popularity in regards to its quality and flying attributes , but you, such an experience flyer could not sense any of them.
Again, I (We) feel so bad that you had such a substandart experience with the Evo 50.

Evo Flyer.
