Because RR is trying to force ACE/TT to advertise here. And he needs
another huge plasma tv.

I would be happy if ACE/TT would just participate in the helicopter community. That would be a start.

I looked up the price on the tail set,,, was thinking about trying their set up on my Raptor.
But after pricing it, I found that their parts are much more that TT guess I'll leave it alone.

I like the tail also. I bought some EVOs! The Tiger people are great at copying, a bit short on innovation.

That's the same tail rotor control setup as on a Caliber 30......

Personally even if I wanted to buy a Tiger heli I wouldn't for the way they are advertising their heli and only. They are pathetic.

again SPB you take things way to personally. how do you handle the majority of the main streem advertising today? you must not buy anything!

Ask your Doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.

More that if TT were to start advertising here then they must be commercially in trouble !

Just have to look at the post count on the Raptor forum to see how much free advertising they are getting on RR.

You'd want to be an extraordinarily good communicator to participate on the TT side in these forums wouldn't you ! I think having reps that are fellow hobbists participating is a better idea myself.

Well if TT won't advertise why don't we as loyal "raptor junkies" make some comparisons between the Tiger and Raptor 50. Anyone here familiar with the Tiger 50?

I don't see why everyone is so threatened by an add? 1) if the raptor is better anyway it will come out 2) competition is a good thing, if the Tiger begins to make a dent in TT sales, they will be forced to advertise, adjust prices or make improvements to there helis.

I may be missing something, but why are you all bashing John. I have a Raptor 50, don't know John, and have never seen a Tiger 50 in person, and even if he did ask the add to be put here, is it his fault that it was. As far as I know John does not own this Forum. So if anybody doesn't like it I think they should be bashing Mark Ryder.

By the way, per the other forum, Marcus Kim is now a TT Rep.

Those LARGE pictures at the top are annoying: now you have to scroll down to reach the topic list, which takes mouse, scroll bar etc.... Actually I never noticed the picture content until you mentioned

I don't see what the hype is all about. The Tiger 50 looks like an ugly, cheap, plastic helicopter. I've researched it and parts are more expensive for the Tiger than for the Raptor. If you want a cheap, plastic CCPM machine, get one of those JR Ventures. There's a guy at my field with one of those. Man, that thing defines junk! I haven't checked the price of the Venture, but I'm guessing that you could probably get one for less than the Tiger.

....or, you could save a little bit more, get a HyperRaptor package from Heliproz, and be done with it!
