I would like to try my hand at a scale Hughes 500D but, I not been able to locate a manufacturer that makes one to fit Raptor 30/50 mechanics. I have seen Hughes 500 fuse on raptor mechanics but, Century and funkys chart does not indicate that they fit 30/50. Is it that they are covering there tail and they will fit. But it will require alot of work. The reason to use the raptor 30/50 is because I already have the mechanics and electonics.

Here is one

Actually
the latest style 500's at Century DO INDEED work with a raptor....slight mods to the collective arm on some...even the framework is marked inside for the raptor.

Several guys have already done this...look around for comments here on RR.

GOOD guy list-39, BAD guy list-0

Hughes 500 Raptor 50
Hey up in the air...
Hi there, let me shed a little light on this subject for you. I just recently bought the Hughes 500 D from Funky, I have a Raptor 50 v2 ...THIS FUSE IS MADE FOR THIS CHOPPER . As AGRAV8 said the inside is marked and pre drilled for the Raptor. I had to make two cuts to the fuse. one was the tail I had to cut 1 1/2 off the end , no big deal at all, the second was a very minor trim on the upper inside of the fuse where the linkage rods on the controll arm were barely touching.
Give me a day or two and Ill post some pictures of it for you.

Funky, Century sell's them,, I believe the floor in the Funky has holes for the Raptor, Sceadu and Century's 30's/50's..

I got in touch with Ron at Century and asked some questions about the 500D fuselages. YES, they are made for Raptor 50's to fit into them. So I should be seeing one in a few days .

Thnks for the help guys and I am sure that I will have many more questions later.
