Hi,
This would be my first post on this forum.

I have a question on the stability of the tail boom on the standard raptor 90. I'm running all standard, with a MD500 scale body. I've modified the tail boom struts to fit in the body. But, i've heard that the tail boom is a big problem on Raptor 90's. Vibration, causing the boom to hit mail rotor? I've had about 50 flights, with no problem, but a bit worried.

Thanks!!

Boom cannot hit main rotor... Main rotor can hit boom though

There is not a problem with the scenario you outlined and all boom strikes I have ever heard of were from fancy flying on weak dampners or boggin the head speed so low that a blade folds back some. I am guessing since this airframe is in a scale MD500 fuselage that you are not doing 3D affairs with it so no worries..

Just make sure you can check your boom mounting bolts from time to time as with all things heli they can vibrate loose

where did you read that the tail boom of a R90 STD is a
"big problem" ?

with the TT MD500 scale body , why did you think it necessary
to refit the boom supports ?

fwiw..

Sounds like yet another Raptor myth...Poor constructions seems to lead to all sorts of defective design...

Why not? I reinstalled mine on a scale body just for the extra support.
