Just curious, I have a raptor 50 V2 with OS 50 Hyper and JK Hatori pipe. Anyone have an estimate or close approximation of total weight this heli can handle and still fly reasonably well?

Maybe
heli plus 6-8 LBS MAX depending on blades and what your doing inflight.

Liftoffs aren't the problem...stopping descents is where the trouble starts.

In my gallery you will see a Sceadu 50 with OS50SXH 600 SAB Carbons and a home made mount weighing around 5 to 5.5lbs. It lifted the weight and flew relatively well or reasonalby well as you were asking. There was lots of load on the motor and the blades. I would not have even considered an auto with it. You would be much better off trying to stay at around 3 to 3.5lbs plus the heli.

I will say it was loads of fun and very inspiring to get a gasser with the big blades. I only wish I would have not bought a Bergen and went straight to the Vario Benzin that I have now. The Bergen was a huge disappointing waste of money. The Vario Benzin is an excellent machine.

Enjoy

Well the reason being is I've been asked to do a film for a professional ski/snowboard movie. However, the real question is, can any helicopter substain freezing temperatures and altitudes of 10,000ft? That is the big question
