Okay...so I got a new joker a couple weeks ago...mymaiden flight this morning ended VERY BADLY...rear linkage got hung up ina full back elevator position...the heli did about 5 back flips on its own before I cut the power..My joker has(actually it... had)a carbon boom on it...it is a raptor boom I know that..it has a reducer collar on the front...

I am wondering if it is a raptor 60 or a 90 boom?

does anyone happen to know what I need to buy?...unfortunately Joker USA is at IRCHA so I wasn't able to talk to joe...

I was running 710's by the way...

Thanks for the help

if you're totally jammed up, I have a spare new, unused 431 aluminum boom (from my Acrobat) and I'm in the Concord, MA area.

The normal carbon joker boom had a aluminum section on the front.

boom

yep...mine has that aluminum section in the front...I'm pretty sure this is a raptor 60 or 90 boom that just has the aluminum section glued/screwed in...

I am going to buy a carbon rap 90 boom and then just cut it down if I have to...

JAG,

IT WAS THE STOCK CARBON TAILBOOM FROM JOKER. SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT THE CRASH! ALSO SORRY FOR THE ALL CAPS BUT I AM CAMPING AND MY PHONE IS ONLY ALLOWING CAPS ON RR.

YOU CAN ORDER A NEW ONE FROM FXA IF NEEDED. PM ME IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS I MAY HAVE AN ALUMINUM ONE AT HOME.

Raptor 60 boom fits the Joker CX -----

So check this out...I had an aluminum raptor 60 boom so I decided to try it out on the joker....

The raptor 60 boom is actually about 1/4" longer than the stock joker boom..but the ID and OD are almost Identical...

the ID on the Aluminum Raptor boom is slightly larger...nothing a little shimming couldn't handle though.

So...to make a long story short...I now know that the raptor 60 boom works on the joker
