Doubtful, but it could happen. Seems almost dumb to enter that market when they pretty much dominate the 30-50 size.

They did a prototype 6 months ago, ran it also with 4 bladed head and 4 bladed tail rotor.

I don't think that picture you saw of the Raptor 60 with a gasser was a Prototype from TT. It was just somebodys home made adaptation. TT would never use a 4 blade head or tail on their Helis - it would just be too expensive and complicated.

The four bladed one was a guy in Japan I believe. If you do a search on this subject you can find links with pictures and a description (in japanese though). I don't see why tt would venture into the gasser market. Century IMO has done a great job, but they don't control the 30 and 50 market like tt does. They have great ships though and at great prices. Not dissing them Century at all, I just see why they would venture towards the gasser market. TT doesn't need to expand the product line.

Your views seem quite logical to me as it appears the Gasser market segment is small reative to the glow market although they could easily intrude IF they wanted to I just don't think they will.

I think the Gasser market is growing now that the prices are dropping on them. I still don't think tt will come out with one until they can price it below the others or equal to the predator. By the time they do that, they will be behind. Century from my understanding did a ton of testing on their gasser and like any manufacturer are working to make it even better.
