The tail rotor rotates anti-clockwise.

As for the engine, get the best 30 size you can afford and get a decent semi-tuned muffler to go with it

Third for the OS 37. The OS 32 is a nice engine which I've been flying but given the choice I'd go for a bit more power.

YS 91.... Too much of a good thing is a great thing....No just kidding, OS 37 is cheap, powerful, reliable, & parts are everywhere.

If God had meant for man to fly, he would have given him more money

On the Raptor the main blades rotate clockwise and the tail rotates up into the main blades or counter clockwise. If you're not ready to upgrade to a 50 yet, go with the 37.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it!
