Out of track conditionOut ot track, or woofing condition is a common thing with rappy's. This can be a result of many factors, however I would start with looking at the collective system. Is it tight?. The Rappy is a cheap helicopter, and thus it is not going stay tight forever. Look at the collective system going from the servo all the way up to the blade grips. Don't do barn yard fixes with ca, and bubble gum, if you have slop, then either replace the grips if they are worn, or spend more money, and put on metal grips!!. Have you had a crash? if so did you check the head dampners, if you didn't check them, then I would. You can not fly a plastic machine forever, and expect it to be tight, this is just a fact. My statements aren't directed solely towards the raptor, but it is one of the machines that I have found does not tolerate low maintenance. As usual, all other specs in the manual should be followed. Pitch ranges, head speed, and other adjustments via manual.
One Thing for sure, don't put super light blades on the raptor, it doesn't like it, unless you've spent lots of money making it a barny parts raptor extraviganza!!, it will flutter like a bird(i.e. real bird) in the air.
