Hi guys.

I'm currently assembling a Raptor 90 STD (my first raptor), but I'm having difficulty locating the flybar rod.. It wasnt't in the "F" bag, where the rest of the head assembly is (probably too long to fit in the bag).. I'm guessing that it's in the bag with other rods, but I can't figure out which it is.. I've got one suspect, but it's threaded in the ends.. Could that be right ?

What is the length and diameter of the rod? Maybe I could identify it that way.

Huh?

So the paddles are screwed on to the flybar rod? I thought the countering allen-bolt held it in place by itself..

If not, it's disassembly for me.. I decided to go with the threaded rod..

Yea, it's the stock paddles.. I'll disassemble tomorrow (getting late in this part of the world) and see if I can screw the paddles on.
Thanks for your help. I'll get back to you and let you know how it turned out.

The one you have suspect, threaded on both ends is probably the correct rod.

If this is for real, it's proof that there is another component to what the world believes makes up your basic molecule. Protons, neutrons, electrons-------well, you get the picture.

I agree with Hitch-Hiker

this is got to be a joke dudes,you're probably too drunk to find the part
in either case the fly bar rod should be in with the tail boom

Well, unfortunately (for me), this post is real..
Should you be worried? Probably not..

Status as of now:
I used the correct rod.
I had assembled the paddles without screwing the rod into the paddle, fastening it just by the allen-bolt.
I've corrected it..

I really don't see why I should get comments like I've gotten.. I was in doubt, and I asked. The manual only says "Add the paddles", which really doesn't explain which rod to use, or that it's supposed to be screwed into the paddles..

I am very careful when I'm assembling this bird. The sheer size of it says "better safe than sorry", which is why I turned to this forum to get an explanation..

James, I am sorry if my post was taken in any disrespect to you.

But... If you truely used any other part that was included in that kit as a flybar other than the flybar, you really need to have someone check that machine over real well that has a good base of heli knowledge.

These machines are not toys.. thay can kill if not respected.

Judgeing from you other posts, maybe you need to set aside the R90 for a bit, and go for that hornet 2.

Hitch-Hiker:
No offense taken. It's easy to misunderstand each other on forums.

I never used the wrong part as a flybar. I was in doubt, and asked so that I could be certain that I would not make a mistake.
However, not screwing the paddles onto the flybar was a mistake, but it has been corrected now.

Yes, I totally agree that these are not toys, and have a healthy respect for these oversized flying lawnmowers.
And I always let someone experienced check over my machines. Been doing it for 12 years with my planks, and I'm definitly not going to stop doing that when it comes to helis. Two pairs of eyes are always better than one pair.

Hornet 2? I have an electric heli for indoors flying, but not a hornet 2. I am already flying nitros.
Perhaps you're looking at the wrong person?

I think this thread has been a long list of misunderstandings. I'll try to be more clear in the future.
