had/have both and the trex nitro is a better heli. lighter, more agile, parts are cheaper for most part and ccpm...ticks most of the boxes altough there will always be room for a raptor in the market but maybe people are fed up with a decal change.

yes the pros make anything look good but there is always benefit to joe bloggs with better gear. you might not be able to get to the same level of performance but it will make what you already do easier.

I won't be getting rid of my raptors. It's enjoyable flying different machines.

I have been flying a Raptor 50 for a short while now, and I really like it. It is smooth and predictable.

That being said, I flew a well set up TREX 600N about a month ago and was very impressed. As someone mentioned above, it is lighter and more agile and you can certainly feel it when you fly it.

I will not be selling my Raptor but, at some point in the future, I will probably obtain a TREX 600 (after they correct some of the early teething issues that have been mentioned on these forums).

I had a Raptor 50 and a Trex 600N Pro. You can definately tell a difference between the two. The Trex 600N is more precise, it doesn't pitch in FFF like the Raptor, and it autos better. The parts quality on the Trex is a step up too.

However, I personally do not think they are night and day different. The Raptor was a ton of fun to fly. At my skill level, I can honestly say that both heli's are fun, with the edge going to the Trex 600N.

So why did I sell my Raptor 50? Well, I crashed it one weekend after flying both heli's, and went to the LHS simply to get the parts to fix it. They happened to have a Trex 600N Sport just sitting there up high on the shelf, and I made the mistake of asking to look in the box!

All those beautifull, shiney new parts! They gave me a steal of a deal! You know, an offer I couldn't refuse!

So I bought it, moved over all the components and electronics from the Raptor, and sold the Raptor frame. With the money I got from the frame, and the Kasama head, and some spare parts I had, I more than paid for my new toy!!

Now I have 2 awesome flyiing helis, and I only have to keep spares for one brand.

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

I think there is a difference in the way they fly. I owned R50's for years, and would never go back now. My 600N is a little more than
1/2lb ligher with same setup, but feels more like 1 1/2 lb in the air.
super tracking, fast roll, and auto's that go on forever....

I have had two bad crashes, and it did not self-destruct either time.
(they were both pretty hard hits)

If I need to upgrade my R50SE to a 600N, all I need is the canopy and it's good to go!

Yes the 600N is a nice model, but so is the R50SE.
I see no reason to change over. Most of us have build up quite a few spare parts and to sell all that at 50% and then having to spend more then double the amount to not just purchase a new heli, but having to also built up a full set of spare parts again.
For most of us the "50" helies are the sacrificial lamb for those new maneuvers that might go "wrong".
The Rappy is perfect for that.

My R50 is for sale right now after flying my 600N. I have 2 600N's and they ARE that much better IMO - for the flying I do.

Right now trex is hot so LHS will have parts so that could be a deciding factor the thing I worry about trex is they seem to change a lot to get better products when they find it I might change over I have flown 600n & 600e fly great I'm just not convinced yet that this is not just a fad

How can one of the best (maybe THE best) flying Nitro 50's on the planet be a fad??? I don't think so...

Yeah but the others you mention are 90's - this is the first truly high performance 50 - ever. There is nothing out that is even close IMO. Not that I've flown them all but there are a few that have and they agree for the most part.
