Dont see any talk about what the Raptor / Titan owners have been up to .
Still flying yours ? Or moved on ?
I was freaked out , thinking i wouldnt be able to find parts..but then i thought all i meed to do is put some effort into the hunt...there are tons of parts out there ..some at great prices too !
If you moved to another brand , what and why ? Hows it working out ?

R/C is like the mob ..once your in , your NOT gettin out !

Heli-kraft is one place..... but not good in terms of shipping costs....

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

I have an E550 3b just about ready to go. I have ordered an Sbus receiver, I need to solder some plugs onto the ESC and then set up the GT 5.2. It will probably still be a couple of weeks until the maiden.

I have E550-3b. The GT5.2 is a great gyro. But the headlock performance isn't good due to original plastic tail blade(85mm). Change it into carbon, you will get better headlock in 85mm, get great in 95mm . But the 95mm blade will be too near to the ground.

I was definitely thinking of changing the TR to carbon blades. Not a fan of plastic

looking for 111T main gear for Raptor E550

I've tried the email connection to TT and the TT site and heli-kraft.com.

I was wondering if there were other sources...or...

some other Raptor parts that might substitute. For example, I found a 135T main gear that with a 13T pinion would give the same gear ration as the 111T/11T combination. I have no idea if it would fit or not (diameters, mounting, etc.). I can turn adapter parts but without dimensions or having the parts in hand I'm in the dark.

Thanks for any info.

Jerel

I recently was able to order the 111t main gear from Bonnie Kang at the following address: Bonnie@thundertiger.com

Have you tried there?

if it doesn't fit, make it fit.

I received my parts from TT at the end of last week. No problems!

flying mine for 3 years

Been flying the E550 2 & 3 blade ships for 3 years.

Sold my E700 kits for fear of parts.

Graupner Germany has parts for the E series helis, E360,E550 both, E700 helis.

https://www.graupner.com/search?sSearch=Raptor&p=13

E550 stuff can be had from ActivePowerSports.com and HeliKraft also.

Keep them flying.
