Don't know if you guys have seen the new Quick UK Raptor 30/50 series pinion support ??

I haven't owned a Raptor in a long time !! But this is a nice little upgrade.

Back in the early days of Raptors Jan 2000 time, me and my mate got our Raptor 30 V1. They were great but my mates had a terrible resonance problem. Nearly every component was changed to no avail.

One day we struck upon the very idea now being sold by QUK and my mate made one at work. It worked a treat. It was amazing how much smoother and quieter the machine became.

I know plenty of people have made them since and sold them too around the world, but it's nice to know we were the first !!

I've got 2 sitting on the bench in front of me

Now I've just got to take both heli's to bits to fit them

IMHO this qualifies as a "Must have" for a rap 50

Reesy, Ive never completely stripped them to change pinion bearings.

Just servo and pitch tray removed.
