How much weight do you think a Ratpor 50 can lift? I lost my Canopy to my 28% plane today it fell off in flight and went into the sugarcane field! I want to strap my camcorder (525 grams) on to my heli and see if I can find it! Should I adjust my pitch curve from +10 to maybe +12 for more lift? Any advice would be good!!

I have lifted 1,2kg with my 50V2 hyper. Pitch +10 / -10. Plenty of control, loop and roll no problem.

I fly an Audacity Models Tiger 50... with the "regular" OS .50 engine (not the Hyper).... at 5000 feet above sea level. I have a Helicam Solutions Sport 30 mount, carrying a Nikon D70 digital camera, a video downlink micro camera looking at teh viewfinder image... a color video downlink transmitter... and a GentleLED Infrared camera trigger..... and it flies it just fine.....

Strap your camcorder onto your Raptor and go find your canopy! You'll have a lot less weight... you have a more powerful engine... and you are at sea level....

Hey,

My .39 Raptor V2 can lift a 1.3 lb panasonic camcorder. I just use a little more headspeed and everything else works itself out.
