I hate where the boom is attached to the frame on the Raptor.

I threw some Raptor 90 boom supports on and secured them
here. The plastic fuel tank supports won't flex at this point.
Now the boom / boom supports form something closer to
a right angle triangle, which IMHO will give better support.

Think it'll fly? (Yes I know, I'm missing a FEW parts... )

I've always placed mine down low also. Like you, I feel it is a better angle.

Got mine attached to the bottom 2,

Managed to crash tail first and the whole heli bounced 6 foot back into the air before hitting the ground again, broke the usual blades,fan housing and undercarriage but the backend survived.


Must have got lucky on that one

Mine are in the standard position. I have thought of moving them but due to the sideways flex of the plastic frames I did not do this. Having them in the lower position will probably reduce flexing up and down and increase flexing side to side.

If I have a problem with resonance and the stays I would be more inclined to adjust the lenth of the stays.

Steven, do you keep losing the grommets for the rear mounting lug on the fuel tank? Mine won't stay in, keep losing them and have to replace them

Good idea, but on my last crash I broke both the back plastic frames and hunted round but couldn't find any, so I got fast lad to make some out of carbon with smaller holes. Goes well with the carbon side frames

Looks good dronk monk. You must have a stiff rear end.

I like the tank retainer! If I did something similar I would extend the frames over the engine mounts to improve rigidity of main frames.

The strap was an afterthought but does keep the tank nice and snug in there.

I'm ignoring Paul, he's obsessed
