Just thought I might try and give my old machine a fly as I haven't got my other machines anymore.

I sold the head to a guy who desperately needed a Raptor 90 head for flying.. As I wasn't flying jetcat anymore I sold it to him..

I thought i'd try and start it after nearly 5 yrs, as I am missing the smell of JET A1, but I need to get a head..

Raptor heads are few and far between, as is the Predator head..

I will be swinging 850mm blades @ 1350 ( I think that is the old gear ratio on the PHT3 or it maybe 1250 )

Would the TREX 700 Head manage that ? or is it a case of scouring EBAY for old raptor parts.

Get a Vario benzin trainer head. Will handle that no problem.

For your reference

Hi, Matt:

850mm blades @ 1350 ( I think that is the old gear ratio on the PHT3 or it maybe 1250 )
=> Mine is the same setup as your description.

I used Align 700 FB in the past.

Now, we use Gaui X-7.

For your reference.

Good luck.

Good to hear from you,nice looking heads.

Are they the Jetcopters or Airstar Mongoose ? the powdercoated frames look like the Mongoose from Airstar

Hi, Matt:

You are more than welcome.

It is a Jetcopter.

Best regards.
