Here's a question. On all my other raptors the hoops on the head attache with the big end of the ball link going towards the ball. On the new head the hoop attaches to the top of the head like normal but attaches to the opposite arm on the washout causing the smaller end of the ball link to be towards the ball as seen in the picture below which is taken from the beginning of this post. Is this normal? Is this one of the changes? I just don't like how you have to force the ball link on to the ball. Did I so something wrong?

You can see how the hoop goes on the opposite washout arm. On all my other raptors the hoop goes on the same side as the top arm.

Nope you did not do anything wrong. They apparently have not updated the Oval Links (hoops) yet. So they DO go on the ball backwards.

A number of us have had this question now during the build. Jason asked Dino about it and it was confirmed. To make it easier if you need to, you can unscrew the ball, mount it and then screw it back in with arm on.

I made my tops fit right, and my bottoms are the tight (backwards) ones. I managed to just force them over the ball... which they will typically go to far, then it is easy to back them up, back onto the ball properly.

well if you will sit on you heli and use it as a tobogan then what do you expect either that or perhaps you have already found a well powerfull engine looks a bit like a full size heli with the blade droop, pretty impressive either way.
hmmmmmm Novarossi 57 and Titan SE sitting here what to do now that is the question

Hi Ady TBH the post above about what to do is because i'm waiting on an S.X shuuuuuush it's a TT thread and i'm not sure what to do.
Buy another engine, Webra 55 P5 for hopefully power with cheap to run fuel or go with Redline 53 cheaper to buy and put this in the Titan, OR wait to see if the other model arrives and build that as originaly planned ( i can't build now coz of being too busy) OR put this combo together and see what I think regards the engine in use etc and get another one if I luuurve it. decisions decisions so many decisions It is very nice to have got the engine at last and I know they are expensive but there looks to be more machining work involved in them and on inspection I am impressed by what I have seen
