Hello i bought a Raptor 30 from a local guy and I have been slowly building it up. I have never flown before so this will be my first time. I have been playing around on the sims at a friends house because I don't own one myself. I fallowed the radio setup from another website but i am just not sure if i did it right.
My few questions are:
1) should i take it an have it looked over before i fly it?
2) will the local hobby shops look at it?
3) what do u think of my setup for a beg?

Raptor 30
O.S. 32sx
Jr Xp783 radio
Jr R770s receiver
Jr G500T gyro
Jr nes-537 servos for elevator,aileron,pitch
airtronics 94102 for rudder
jr nes-507 for throttle

thanks guys

1. YES ABSOLUTELY!
2. Depends on if they have someone that knows what the heck they are doing. Find someone that knows whats up.
3. Looks ok for a beginner. If you stay serious you will probably get bored with a 32 powered 30 though as they lack significant zip but to teach you to hover and fly around it will be fine.

airtronics 94102 for rudder
seriously consider a different servo for the tail. That is the lowest end servo Airtronics makes. A decent servo for the tail on a budget is the Hitec HS525. Make sure your gyro is set to non-DS mode for either the 102 or the 525. Also if you can find a used JR 810T servo that'd be even better and can be ran in DS mode. Next step above that would be a JR8700, Futaba 9254 or Hitec HS6965.

definitely find a club and have someone take a look at your bird.

If you think you stick with it (have the time and desire) I would look into getting a sim. You will need it for more than just getting in the air. They are great when you haven't flown for a while and for learning new maneuvers. Make sure you can repeat a maneuver several times in a row b4 trying it for real. The workload is much greater with the real thing in the beginning. Why risk the model when its much easier to hit the space button I flew all winter on a sim before flying the model the first time in the Spring.

Don't just have it looked at before flying. Have someone with experience fly it for you and be there the first time you try to fly the heli. Setup is critical with helis. It can only be checked by flying the model.
BTW I learned to fly with a R30 (os 32) and still love flying it.
