Sceadu V Raptor
Going to buy a 50 size next week and I figure that the Sceadu Evo and Raptor are the leaders in that market. I would appreciate anyones opinion on the pros and cons of both.

This has been discussed to death. The EVO is higher quality, flies better (I've owned both), and will cost less in the end because you don't need upgrades. For me, having owned both, it is a no brainer....

Buy an Evo... my Raptor 50 just exploded in flight when the plastic head block broke. Sad part is I was trying to sell it to buy an Evo. After flying a friends Evo 50 it's clearly the better machine.________________

I agree. I've owned both and you couldn't give me a Craptor now. The Evo is easier fly which means you may very well crash less, and that will save you lots of money.

Sorry guys, I didn't realise there's been so many posts on this, Looks like the Sceadu is more of a favourite. I had a Venture before that I was never a bundle on and then a blade grip failed and that was the end of that. So time to change.

yep, I was going to mention that...you post in a Hirobo column you'll get a hirobo answer (and vice versa) I have both rappys 50/90 Evo 50 and xspec....My rappys are highly upgraded my hirobo products are not.
Both are great but out of box I would say evo....

Answer!
Evo 50 – Rap 50.

I went out to the field a while back, with my Evo 50, and two friends with Raps 50, they asked me to fly their heli to trim them out, after getting the two raps trimmed out, I then fired up my Evo 50, I noticed that my Evo 50 is more stable and more responsive compared to a Rap. This was an interesting experience!

Never look back!!.........

If you browse this Hirobo section, you will notice resently that there are alot of threads about people that where once raptor owners getting into Evo's.

This is good......It shows that many of these people are "comming into the light" as some would say.............

You won't be disappointed, the Evo is the way to go. And for those that tell you the raptor is there choice over the Evo....well..........everyone has there opinion....but it's possible their pride is blinding them, or they have simply spent way too much money "upgrading" their raptor to say otherwise. .

The Raptor guys arguments are parts availability, and cost of parts for 50 size performance, which are good points. The Evo guys arguments are that the Evo simply flies better and is a better quality machine, which are also good points. Me, well I used to own a Raptor, now I own an Evo 50 and X-Spec ._______________________

I have noticed that most of the raptor 50's i have seen have $200-$300 worth of anodized downgrades on them,so price is not really the concern to a lot of the raptor owners. If it's flying quality you want it's the EVO.YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE..IF YOU LIVE IT RIGHT THATS ALL YOU NEED

A friend has both, I watched him fly both. Easy flying and 3D, the EVO is smoother, cleaner and more graceful.Welcome my son, Welcome to the machine

The Evo does not fly better than the Raptor. I guess it does if your a Hirobo Rep in training.

The feeling of control is different.....Evo is more smooth and predictable....
For me it means better.

Sooo.....what your saying is that all the guys that posted in this thread are training to be Hirobo Rep's..??

..Or maybe its just that after owning / flying both, their opinion's are that the Evo just simply fly's better and is of better quality....
