I bought two used helicopters few weeks ago, Raptor 90 and apparently Freya R/F Twister. At first I thought it was X-spec but it propably is not.
I didn´t get those strange looking tail fins so I bought Freya fins for this heli. Also I didn´t like that fiberglass canopy at all so I bought Freya plastic canopy.

Helicopter has CF lower frame, Freya (non-evo) plastic top frame, SWM set and plastic head / blade grips.

I have tried to find pdf manual for this helicopter but no luck.
Will I go wrong if I build it according to X-spec manual + swm conversion?

I agree. There should be very little different that would cause you problems. By all me ask if you need help. Lots here have built X-Spec's and/or have used the SWM conversion.

I could not see much difference in parts of this heli and X-spec so it is almost ready to fly.

What kind of cyclic / collective angles you recommend for X-spec and how to get them? I seem to get +-11 of collective and 5deg. of cyclic..

sounds about right - depending on how you st up the mixing levers. What type of flying are you doing? 3D?

It´s kind of sporty 3D with some inverted flying, tictocs etc.
ie. no hardcore crack-3D.

Test flew the Twister today for two tanks. It felt surprisingly agile with those angles.. Of course it doesn´t have the pop my D3 had (with lighter blades and +-13/7 angles) No idea on rpm either, I was alone at the field so bit difficult to measure.
