When you raptor flyers out there have to suggest a new raptor for someone who wants to get into 3-D. Would you suggest the raptor 50 or the raptor 60?

I want to know the same question for choosing an engine. The TT or the OS version?

A Raptor 50 with the OS50, has the best power to weight ratio, of all the std Raptors. A 60 would need a YS91 to compare. Cost vs fun, the Rap 50 is the wat to go.

Go with the Raptor 50V2 and OS50....and maybe lateron the MPII for the .50 (when it becomes available)

I bought one from http://www.heli-kraft.com >> that`s the way to go for peeps in Holland

Groetjes

ps. Ik vlieg al een tijdje met een Raptor 50V2 (njah vloog totdat iemand zn zender aanzette op mijn kanaal) en ik doe ook 3D... en de TT50 geeft alleen maar problemen, nu had ik de laatste 30 vluchten een OS50, hij verbruikt 2x zoveel brandstof, maar daar krijg je echt wat voor terug.

je kunt me altijd mailen of een PM sturen....

Go for a 60 or 90.

I bought a R50 for two month ago and I'm planning to buy a 90 SE when it will be avalible!

I have about the same question but only, which of the
2 machines would be better to fly F3C.

I wanna practise both 3D and F3C.
So would the R50 be stable enough?

Also, how does it look in the sky? I mean, flying a .30 for the moment,
i think it's hard to see when flying at a higher altitude to practise.
I heard that a .60 is a lot easier to see (what would make practise easier i think).

As for the engine if i would get a 50 it would be the one with the
TT50. I mean, harder to tune or not, a .50 already has lots of power
due to its nature and fuel economy is so much better on the TT.

Wouter, for your purposes, I would go with the 60. You can't beat the size for stability in hover. The 60 will do the F3C aerobatics very nicely.

For F3C, I would recommend the R60. Its more stable in the wind, and its sure more nice to auto with.

The R60 does fly FAI very nicely, you might have to change the paddles, but that is just about it.

FAI-F3C!

This is a New Generation machine- the Raptor 50! With an OS 50 you can do 3D maneuvers with less hassle. It is so agile, you would want another for backup!
I chose to fly this machine to iron out all the shakey maneuvers. When I am ready, I will go all out to have the best 60 machine I desire!

Putting all your advice together...

The 50 has the better power/weight ratio....
The 60 is the more stable and visible one...

Is this a good summary of al your comments?

P.s. Richard, ik stuur je binnenkort even een mail!

Yes, that's true! But if you are still concerned about visibility of the heli while in flight, then, you still have the risk of crashing. And in that case, for every crash you make with a 60 machine, you can afford to purchase a Raptor 50 machine.

Raptor 50 with TT50, powerful, stable and most importantly, fuel saving!

OS50 is very good but eats too much fuel!

Raptor 50 every time but the Raptor 90 is getting just as hot

If your just starting to get into 3D then go for the 50, more than enough power to start learning 3D and is cheaper to repair after those silly mistakes our thumbs keep making

I think i will go for the 60. Stability and visibility is very important for me. The possibility of making it a 90 is also nice.

Thanks for your advice
