After trial and error, I finally have my Raptor 50 flying exactly like I want it. She started life as a 50v2 and this is how I have her set up now:

Titan boom and belt
8.72 gear ratio
OS 50 Hyper w/ Kasama aluminum fan
Old hatori SB-1, Xcell .60 size muffler (works great)
3 - 9252's for cyclic and collective
9254 and Revmax for throttle
Arizona Regulator and a Relion 4800 mah battery (pack split up to make 2-2400 mah packs)
CSM 720 Gyro and 9254 for the tail.
Full Kasama head (the best out there)
Quick UK tail case and the upgraded grips with thrust bearings
Radix 600mm main blades and 92mm tail blades
80 mm V-Paddles
QUK flourescant orange landing gear
3D canopy custom painted by AceHelis.

Now my Raptor flies just as well as higher dollar machines. It tracks perfectly in all flight orientations. There is no pitching or rolling during FFF. The roll rate is extremely quick with the kasama head. The Hatori SB-1 puts out as much power as the Muscle Pipe II, yet is much quiter and has a broader power band.

Here are some pics:

Nice, sweet looking (and flying, I hope) heli. You might want to flip the skids around though.

I like the look with the skids pointed backwards. Looks like she is moving fast even while sitting on the table

The last time I had mine perfect, it thanked me by plummeting into the ground!

Yes it is. Left over from Turkey Day.

Hopefully mine won't suffer the same fate as yours...

They are QUK skids that I ordered from Rick's R/C. You can get them in several different colors. They are also a little bit taller and wider than the stock gear and they are a lot stronger.

soulrider911,

Thanks for the compliment. I have always put my Raptor skids on backwards. I just like the more aggressive look.

BTW, I see that you are looking at getting the Kasama head. You will not be disappointed. This setup definitely has a lot of "bang for the buck." You can buy them from z-rc.com.

Good luck
