Electric Raptor as Good as the Trex 600?
Thinking of getting the Trex 600 but wondering if maybe quality is better with raptor? Anyone have any thoughts?

Your right...It really sucks out of the box. I guess that would explain why Alan took 2nd with it at the XFC and his brother took 6th. Both flying bone stock configs. In fact Alan's wasn't even the higher end carbon fiber version but the base model with the aluminum frame.

Sorry but the motors, pinions, ESC's were all stock. I believe there was a video floating around of Alan detailing his setup and explaining everything was stock. The only non-Align part he was using was a new Thunder Power prototype battery but since a battery does not come with the kit it wouldn't be considered a non stock part would it.

For me it's not so much that it didn't come in 1st place.
It's more of the design. Will the TREX let you run the motor and
battery you want? Are you limited by size and placements constraints
etc. The Raptor may have the edge in this department.

Until the Raptor is released, we won't know for sure.

The guy who has a Raptor and a pile of spare parts will probably
lean in that direction. The guy who doesn't and likes the
prepackaged power setup would probably be perfectly fine with
the TREX as currently available.

Me? I'm hoping TT will come out with a coversion kit early on so
I can use my box of parts.

After reading about the problems at RCG I’m sure glad I didn’t get a Trex 600. They are having all the new design problems just like they has on the 450 – that took them a very long time to work out all the bugs.

My main complaint is that they designed to for their motor and battery only. Adapting other motors (outrunners) requires extensive frame modifications (you have cut the heck out of the frame).

My plan is to get a Raptor E620 and install a Kasama head. I already have a Neu ORK motor and CC HV85 ESC that needs a home. With a 10s to 12s LiPo it should be a real screamer. The power should be somewhere between a Raptor 50 and 90!

There is nice garbage and ugly garbage, but it’s still garbage.
