Lets see....they both had a mid air boomstrike but your Freya had a good reason and the Raptor just blew apart in mid air for no apparent reason. Hmmmmm...I have a new Raptor on the way and I hope it dont blow up in mid air every time I fly it. I hate it when that happens.!!!!!! And I dont think it will happen.

Hi guys:

I have had two in air boom strikes with my Raptor 60. I was thinking the Raptor was the problem but after some searching and asking known pilots, I ended with the conclusion that I was the problem! I was letting the headspeed dropping too much. After I realized that, I've never had a problem again. Just relax that collective stick when the heli tells you to do it. I do really hard 3d maneuvers with it now. Any, but any heli will boom strike you hard 3d it with a too low headspeed. That's why you hear from time to time high prices helis boom striking in the air.

Which One

Hi,

Presently I own both a R60V2 with a OS 70 and a Freya with a YS 61STII. I'm going to sell the Raptor and keep the Freya. The Freya IMO handles much better in the stock configuration that the Raptor does. I learned to fly with the Raptor and don't have anything bad to say about it. I just like the solid mechanics of the Freya.

Good luck on whatever you decide to buy.

Regards,
