Been off here for awhile and just recently found out about TT bail out
Not sure what I'm going to do with mine at this point where I would be afraid to crash and don't have enough parts to rebuild.

Sounds like it would be best for you to sell and keep the ones supplied that are not afraid of crashing.....

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

Drool! Keep it man- that machine looks awesome. How often do you really crash? I went through this dilemma myself and finally realized I don't really crash that much (I don't fly hard or 3d) and with the spare airframe and parts I have on hand, my x50 will likely last a long time. The same goes for my old-skool raptor 50's and 90's

I'm afraid I wouldn't get much for them to be honest. I have parts and don't fly that often, so I'm not worried.

From your last post......

From your first post......

These two statements contradict each other ......

So put 2 and 2 together there Juan, he said he has parts but not enough parts to justify keeping them. So I would say he has some but not alot to justify keeping them as we all face this with our Raptors. I myself have 3 but I am limited on parts and find myself not flying as much anymore due to it becoming a dying hobby. Go troll some place else!

Not trolling at all....

He asked for advice and I and others gave it......

Then his last post seemed to contradict his first.....

Just asking questions as to be better able to give appropriate advice......

I have 50SE parts but not a lot of parts for X50
I helped a friend with some X50 parts and I couldn't replace an airframe with what I have now. This heli is in mint condition. My point being made was if people are getting out of them so they are not stuck with something that can't be fixed or I'm sure people are buying them right now for extra airframes.
This is my only nitro I have left and love that smell when burning it..the others are electric Goblin 500 and Logo 500SE

What I have in it now, I can move to a different airframe if I choose to do so

It's because you mixed quotes from two different people, me and op.

E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

Keep it

If you still have good use for your heli and know that you can't get much value back by selling it, might as well keep it and enjoy it as much as you can and get as much of your investment back in terms of utilization. If you are afraid to crash it and would prefer to admire it then don't fly it as often and take her out every once in a while for a stroll in the park. She's a certified antique artwork now!

While browsing the "other site" I stumbled across this thread regarding folks getting their Raptor parts directly from Taiwan.... here is the link.
