I'd like to hear from other people who have been flying Raptor 60's.

I have a R60 with a TT70 engine and have been using the stock wood blades with a head speed around 1750rpm.

It flies really tame - I would even say it is sluggish.

I want to make it fly a little more aggressive so I plan on putting on carbon fiber blades and bumping the head speed up, and maybe adjusting the pitch range.

I don't want to go crazy, just a step up in performance.

What head speed and max pitch would you recommended?
Any other settings I could tweak?

Thanks,
Don

R60 setup

Hello! you can bump your head speed to 1850/1900;get lighter paddles for faster cyclic.Make sure you have full cyclic/collective throw.Check head temperature quickly after hover to be around 200;get a governor to maintain headspeed for 3d;get 6volt system for faster servos,will need spectrum regulator if you have 401/9254 gyro;get wide chord blades;get hi-perform pipe like align or curtis young pipe.note:make SURE you are at 0 degrees at 50 output of radio,norm switch and screen.Or idle up at center stick exactly,0.25.50.75.100.Setup all controls so servo arm is at 90 degrees to control rod,center stick,50 output for throttle also. Good luck!

Yep, all of the above.
I was about to convert mine to a .90 and I decided to try a MP5 on it instead of the regular muffler and that made a hughe difference so it stayed as a R60.
Good blades (you'll notice massive difference from the woodies to almost any CF blade), lighter paddles, as said above and I would add harder dampers too.

I have in mine the red paddles and dampers OS 70 SZH with a MP5, governor, Radix 690s, and the original plastic tail blades. GY401 w/9254 and S9252 on the swash.

And no, I'm not a 3Der yet but the heli flies very nice as sport and some basic acrobs

Intelligence chases me, but I'm a lot faster! Fernando

UPDATE - I tached it.

So I flew my R60 today with the 680mm carbon TT blades on it. I had it at half stick hover before and set up the curves to 3/4 stick hover and bumped the rpm's up a bit.

WOW! This things is NEW again! Much more responsive and agile. Didn't bog on full power climbs.

So after nearly a tank of flying I decided to pull out my Globee tach and see what my new headspeed was at.

1650rpm

Yep, that's right...a measly 1650rpm. I thought I had it at 1750 with wood blades, but maybe I set it up by ear so long ago and got the numbers mixed up with my R30.

I'm guessing I was just under 1600 with wood blades.

It's seems a little intimidating to try it at 1850+ but I will!

hehe, I have a new toy again!

You could also replace the flybar carrier and mixing arms with the ones from the R90 3D.

If you skip me I can't play!

A set of the red flybar paddles would be an inexpensive way to speed up the cyclic response
