Actually I was thinking of first upgrading my Raptor 30 to a 50. Then I thought of getting a new 50 with Hyper. I then thought of upgrading the 30 to a 50 and buying another 50!
What I did instead was leave the fuel sipping 30 as is with the addition of Carbon blades and greenie paddles and it hooked up to the outer hole on the mixing arm. The 50 Raptor with an OS Hyper has carbons and greens on the inner hole.
I have 2 very different heli's now that I have a good time equally with.
The 30 I can flip on itself ,,tight tumbles and is extremely manuverable and the 50 is fun for faster flight and big loops more like a Pattern plank if you will.
If gps tt is rather new to heli's a 32 will fly inverted ,,will fly foward and backward inverted,,will nose in inverted,,will do backwards/forwards inverted and upright figure 8's 5 feet off the deck,,stall turns ,,loops,,inverted loops,,rolls and on and on. That's still Alot to learn in my mind.
I enjoy the 30 still because you really become aware of collective management and the nuances of making the thing fly well and under complete control with a finite amount of power. Lots of power is good of course but to me it can be a curse in the long run for learning real personal control of the heli. Maybe I'm getting old but I still admire grace, control and smoothness in maneuvers more than the hanging on jaw dropping violent stuff 6 inches off the ground that just makes me wonder how the heli stays in one piece!! Impressive ,,yes of course but beauty??? No.
I like the fact with the 30 you really have to plan and know how you will do the maneuvere. Sure the 50 is a BLAST but so is my 30. In my mind power can corrupt with heli's too.
My 2 cents
