Ok here's the deal. I've been flying a raptor 30 for 3 years now and am really hooked on helis. I have recently acquired a Hirobo Sceadu 50 (non evo). The Sceadu was crashed and will need a new boom, fly bar, paddles, blades, blade grips, main gears and a few other items. I'm trying to decide if I should rebuild the Sceadu or pull the OS 50 and servos and put them in a Raptor 50. I'm already familiar with the Raptor airframe and the 30 and 50 have about 90% parts in common. What do you think? (especially those having experience with both)

PS I don't want to start a Sceadu vs Raptor flame war. They are both nice helis.

hi mickeymoo

i've got both raptor 30/50 sceadu 50 plus freya!!!
it is or good to learn or start with the 30'sbut when your doing some better stuff than just hovering like some soft 3d flying you do need 50's or 90's there's not much in it with 60's.

ilike my raptor's but i think hirobo's like sceadu's-freya's are very nice!! the head & moving part's move or work well i think better than raptor's but just like every think els hirobo cost a bit more & when ya go bigger evenmore £££££££££$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

alot of guy's are doing every-think with the raptor's 90's & the sceadu has won model-of-the-year over the past 2-3 year's!!!!!! so good choice.

Thanks for the input rapper. I also got a raptor 70 with the Sceadu. I have learned a lot with my raptor 30 but it doesn't have the power to keep up with me now. I like the term soft 3d. I'd say thats where I'm at right now. I know a 70 is no 90 but before I fly the 70 I thought I should get some time in on a 50. With both the raptor 30 and 70 I thought it might make sense to stay with TT helis, but I keep hearing good things about Hirobo. While Im putting it back together should I upgrade it to an evo? What would this take? Does the first Sceadu have any major problems?

converting it isnt necessary, i still fly 2 standard sceadu's very successfully but to be honest i cant say ive flown the Evo so i have no idea if they run any better with whats changed.

the conversion is 130$ and includes replacing the main frames, servo tray, and a bit of the head. there are other things but thats the major work of it.

You can find it at ricks, part number: 412238

if you dont feel like the extra work or the extra money i would replace only what you need with the standard sceadu parts, and upgrade to the evo fuel tank. then just wait for a decent sized crash that involves replacing the parts mentioned in the conversion.
