Have you looked in the classifieds

Probably the best one stop shop...

Otherwise once the addiction matures, get ready to order parts from all corners of the globe

Aside from Walkera, has there ever been a RTF nitro heli?

I would agree that there are fewer nitro choices out there.

where to buy a new raptor ARF

thunder tiger raptor 30/50 V2 has ARF models which I would buy if I could find a new in box kit from an online store or retail store, but since they are discontinued everyone is out of stock, anyone know where they can be found new still?

Not familiar with any "RTF" Raptors of any size..... maybe I missed something ???

Best place to find something like that (or close) would be on Ebay or in the classifieds here or helifreak.....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

I built all my Raptors. They are a kit. No electronics. Completely disassembled when new in the box. I didn't own every model of Raptor, but the ones I did buy were a kit.

I purchased the R50 RTF off of Craigslist last year and paid $400 for it. The engine and servos are ok but everything else is junk.

If I'm not mistaken and understand you correctly, you want to just buy and fly out of box ... Than:

What do you value more: TIME or MONEY?

RTF is available if you pay someone to build it for you.

When starting out, I suggest to seek the help of a local veteran to help mentor you. If not available ... buddy up with someone from this forum.

But if you just want everything include and willing to build, than either purchase from:
- forum like most mentioned
- Align is the closest. Not the best of everything but it will work for the meantime

I would check Ebay consistently for a few weeks. Some will usually pop up

RTF Raptor

Actually there was a TT packaged heli that cane ready to fly.. you needed your tx and rx and starting equipment... but, I am betting that is was 10-15 maybe 20 years ago now...(probably why not too. many are remembering them!!) It has been awhile, thats for sure...

RTF in Nitro is virtually impossible to buy new.

You should visit a hobby store that sells good used equipment. You should ask to see the copter fly and then if you like it have them program your radio and watch it fly on your radio.

I think that a newbie and his/her cash are easily parted when buying on ebay, craigslist, or even RunRyder.

You need more help and helicopters are really not RTF in most cases.
