I was looking at the Raptor kits and saw that for 17.00 you can get full bearings. Seems good to me but will i notice it as i fly my heli....

I flew my r30v1 for a while without the bearing upgrade. When I installed them I didn't notice a difference, but I'm sure in the long run the bushings would have developed slop. When it comes to helis, more bearings are allways better

Absolutely worth it. Smoother, less slop and long term.

Indeed, the bearing upgrade is worth the time and funds. I think its one of the best upgrade for the Raptor, ( and most likely any model ).

I had the chance to fly both, raptor with and without the bearing upgrade. There is a big difference in control component feel and its flying characteristics.

You get more precision, less slop in the control components.
