Well I was very excited to get my Raptor 30 V1 back in the air after sitting in the basement for 5 months. After flying a small electric T-rex for the past few months the Raptor was a pleasant change of pace. I was able to get a friend to take some great photo's and some video, I'd appreciate any comments or analysis anyone might have for me, I think I have the engine set up decently at this point and the throttle and pitch curves seem ok. It was nice to be able to comfortably do some forward flight with the power of the raptor and it's nice to be able to see the big raptor in the air(in comparison to the tiny T-rex). I still like my little electic mini Raptor, but as it gets warmer I think the 30 will be getting more and more use. Look forward to hearing what anyone thinks of this little heli :-)

haha, thanks john, forgot to mention that at the end I had a tail boom support snap, nothing serious but I did have to stop and think how I was going to land with that big thing hanging down ! This way my first relatively fast forward flight on the raptor, really exciting stuff, can't wait to get some more practice at it.

Heli looked good, might be just a tad rich but not for sure, I had the very same thing happen to me on my second hover, and I know what you are saying when you had to stop and think about it for a second, It looks like a tree trunk hanging down there,,,

He was using his Canon 20D with a beautiful big lens, I dont recall exactly which, he took some incredible pictures of my T-rex as well, take a look in my gallery, all the most recent pictures he took for me, he shot at 8mp, which gave me plenty of room to crop and then reduce the number of pixels in half so they would fit on here nicely. Here is one of the other pictures he took of my Rex, the colors in the purple blade grips and blue collective arm really stand out nicely, and the blades couldn't have been in a nicer spot. Take a minute to see the other dozen raptor pics he took at the top of my gallery, I had a lot of trouble choosing which ones to use, they all came out really nice !
