Have a Raptor 50V2 for sale and haven't had one bite on it. Have I been out of the hobby that long that no one flies them anymore?

Man how things change...

Good heli, easy to work on, good flyer. Still my favorite. but i have four of them already.

in a bad economy there are already more sellers than buyers. Also, looking at the forum, the brand categories have expanded to more than double what they were only 5 years ago, so the few buyers that remain are spread out pretty thin these days.

It is by far the easiest nitro bird to work on hands down. I will always keep mine.

fdztec, nice wiring job, very clean. Actually flybarless might just be what I need to bring the performance up on the Titan. How do you like the microbeast?

There is no real reason the Raptor should be considered outdated. Unfortunately there is a faction of hobbiests who get bored easily or can't stand the idea that someone else has something newer. I have a fleet of 20 nitro helis and the bulk of them are Raptors I picked up 2nd hand cheap. I have the 90 3D down to an os 37 powered Raptor 30v2 and I really like them all a lot. I also have other brands but the Raptor series is by far my favorite.
get used to the idea that you'll just about have to give the Raptor away OR, go fly it until there is nothing left. I suggest the latter!

All you need to convert to fbl is a head and controller. I used an RJX head and Beastx. Beastx is so simple to set up and the R50 flies extremely smooth. I have 2 of them and one on a CGY750, also a good choice.

If my wife had another job I'd have more Helicopters

Align just has a bigger ad budget

I have 2 raptors and a trex600 and the trex spends more time on the bench then air..

Another thing to consider is the trex series has bling factor which new flyers cannot resist. Once they figure out that the nice looking CF frame that just broke on a light impact cose 1/2 what the heli cost it makes them believers

Advertising works or they wouldn't still be doing it. The Raptor probably does suffer from less advertising but it is not outdated and can be morphed in about any direction you could want to go.
