Most Popular Helis.

I could be wrong about this, but from flying at the field and seeing what helis where at Ircha this year I would it is a toss between the Fury and Raptor. Hope this helps...

Raptors here in Vegas.

Practice! It might be costly but it's the only way we get better!

In our area you're starting to see more Furys then Raptors. Don't get me wrong, Raptors are still very popular but I think a lot of folks move up to the Fury when they start to become more experienced.

Raptors, without a doubt.

You might see a few more Furys in competitions, but there are definitely a lot more Raptors out there in general. At least in my area.

I've seen about 22 different helis locally. 16 were Raptors, 3 where Hirobo, 2 were Furys and 1 was a Caliber 30. This doesn't include any of the micro helis like Hummingbird or Shogun.

My area has a mixture of Fury's followed by Raptors or Evo's. Really depends on the pilot skill. Most of the more experienced fly Fury's.

Its got to be a raptor

There are great little machines fly really well ,good availibility of spares and cheap to fix to. But the fact that both machines are popular reflects how good they are.

The furys are in a different league and fly better but obviously are a lot more money and are not really practical for a beginner or someone who is just starting to learn 3-d, unless you have deep pockets for the repairs.

If you're talking glows the Raptor probably has the larger market share.

If you're talking gassers, it's Century's Predator Gasser hands down. We had 9 in the air at FallFest at the same time!

Imagine that, every predator gasser ever sold in the same place at the same time. Amazing.
