Is it 50% off for a pack that was damaged in a crash?

I would just ask them to repair it, if they can't they give you the option of another at 50% off. You do have to call TP after they should have received the pack otherwise it will take them forever to get a hold of you. Their Customer Service sucks. The first time I contacted them about my 5S2P packs he said he'd call me back in 15 min, he never did. I waited about two weeks for a response and got nothing. Finally I called back and bugged them till I got an answer as to the status of my batteries.If you skip me I can't play!

So I'm flying along the other day and the ESC(CC85HV) cuts out forcing an auto. All goes well and heli still in one piece. The heli spools right back up back at the pit. I had thrown a bunch of pitch(+-15) at it to see what would happen so this was understandable. The next time I'm out it cuts out again (with reduced pitch) near the 7min mark. Batteries still have plenty of juice(I checked), another auto, all is still well. I threw in the Jazz55 and went out yesterday. Upside down in a flip the Jazz cuts out. Auto down but this time boom and blades are toast. Something is up here and I'm gonna rip her down to find out what.If you skip me I can't play!

I've had simular situation with my Jazz and HV85, but didn't have to auto down, it can back almost instantly. Shame you didn't have a wattsup or data recorder so you could see what was going on as far as amps. and voltage at the time it quit.
Sorry you broke it, its worse when its not you dumb thumbs causing the crash.

My logo10 cut out three times on me (three seperate flights, one cutout per flight) using the HV45 and a JR6102DX. The cut outs were very short, approx 1 second then power back up. I was using the DPR100 all three times and only the first time did it record anything. Just a drop in amps to zero for 1 sec then big spike as it caught and started to spool up. For some wierd reason, the next two times it happened, the DPR100 had no data at all. very strange. I stopped using the DPR in the system and I have flown the heli at least 10 times since and no loss of power. Some wierd gremlins out there.

It's OK, helis are like Doritos, crunch all you want they'll make more!! The worst thing is I can't get the CC85HV to program now with the link. Has this happened to any of you?If you skip me I can't play!

Once when there was a wire cut going to the USB adapter. It seems that I have to plug the power first then the USB or the other way around, before it will work. The 45 is the same way, but if you try different means of plugging in the wires and it doesn't come up, I wouldn't use it anymore for sure.

I already tried all that. I double checked the rx leads too. Still no good. I just cannot get the programming mode to come up. I guess it'll have to go back to Castle.If you skip me I can't play!

Heli is fine, I put the Jazz55 back in and am using the new 10S TP4200 batteries with the 30 gearing and get 2000 headspeed that settles in around 1960 or so. I would really like to get my hands on the new 620 blades soon. The CC85HV still works but I cannot get it to program with the programming link so it'll have to go back to Castle. The large can bearing from Gopher is holding up great! The rubber seals are holding up just fine with the heat(was told 225* max). I like it alot and don't regret it at all. It flies so nice. I need a better power supply though and maybe a generator to charge at the field, the deep cycle just doesn't cut it very well.If you skip me I can't play!

I also just installed the Titan boom and belt for when the 620s come out. My friend likes my E-rap so much he's gonna get the new E-rap when it comes out. I will wait and see how much weight savings there is with the new frames. Sometimes a little heavier machine isn't a bad thing.If you skip me I can't play!

PJ, I bought cgbold's xeroG. I haven't checked the weight yet, but its not going to much less than the Raptor frames. Its just neat and different. He sent it with a Acro 24-5 motor, this motor will pull hell off the cross. Its got a R90 main gear (95T) and a 11T Pinion, with 2 5S2P Lipos the HS is almost 1900 and with 12S emolis its right at 2000. I put a Kasama head on it and of coarse its 120 CCPM. I'm using a Spektrum RX with no problems.

I have not had any luck getting the head wobbles out of my XeroG frame (nitro cf frames not 600ep) I am done trouble shooting it because it is just not worth it. It is too easy to buy a set of stock frames and go from there. I am curious as to what AUW you guys are getting. I had 8lbs 9ozs before I tore mine down to reduce weight. At the time the only weight savings were to remove the pitch arm and install the tppacks.com eCCPM conversion. Now I have removed the servo tray and dremeled out the plastic air shroud. Also I removed the stock landing gear and put a CF gear in place of it. I thought I could use the fiberglass canopy of the XeroG frameset but I does not fit around the eCCPM kit without major mods. I am hoping to get it down to 8lbs or less but the parts that I have removed don't seem to weigh that much. I forgot to mention that I was only running 9s-2p instead of 10s or higher. When the e620SE frames come out I hope to buy one to replace the XeroG frame and then we will have two flying eRaptors, one with the Actro 24-4 and one with a hacker C50-15xl/box (if we can figure out how to mount it)

My Raptor conversion with eCCPM, no servo tray except for the bottom part for batteries, metal heat and grips, Jazz 55-10-32, A50 12S motor, stock plastic canopy, Titan boom, stock landing skids and 2 - 5S2P 4200 packs weighs 8 lb. 4 oz. I might take a few more oz. off with CF tail fins, CF boom, CF skids and a lighter canopy. Probably not enough to offset the cost of those items and it probably wouldn't give me that much more flying time.

Thanks stanc, I am not too far off I guess. What got me started was weighing an eRaven (.60 size) and finding out it was around 7lbs 6ozs AUW. I was shocked to see that this old dinosour weighed less than my eRaptor! We were using 6s-3p TP2100's in it so the battery weight was the same. We are going to swap out the cc phoenix 60 to a hacker 77-O-heli and change from 6s-3p to 9s-2p to get the headspeed up in the 2000 range. If it works, it ought to be just as nimble as the eRaptor... (sorry about the thread hijack as this is a bit off topic) although an A50 12S or 10S would be the bomb in the eRaven...

I never thought I'd see this quote from Gary G(TPPacks)

"Although the Hackers work great, there have been too many “issues” with the large bearing used on the can housing, and with the motors running too hot. The reason is that in the helicopters, we are running these at a much higher rpm rate, than they do in airplane applications. I’m waiting to see how they address these issues before I order any more of the A50s."

So now after flaming me on RCGroups, he thinks there is a problem with the large can bearing. Don't get me wrong, I very much appreciate all that Gary has done to make the E-Raptor and love my E-Rap very much! I think part of the problem here was not enough flight testing prior to sales of the motor and we ended up being the Beta testers.

Yup... Thats why i still have the z-power in and havent yet put the Hacker back in the E-raptor. Great motor, hope there is a solution.

So far my solution has been a 24000rpm steel ball bearing w/rubber seals from Gopher Bearing for $37. It has been holding up so far and is not that expensive.If you skip me I can't play!

The replacement motor I got from Hacker is still running fine. No heat problems and no bearing problems. In 95 plus ambient the motor never gets over 155ºF. and doesn't increase after sitting for a few minutes. Maybe I don't fly this heli as much as you and FlyHuge fly, but before I got this motor it didn't matter how many times it was flown.
