More Details Please
Sitting here with two Raptors - this looks like a great idea. So if would please provide more details of your 50 size setup. Thanks.

hello all , the only photo`s i have of the 50 version are in my gallery , i`m afraid i don`t have any 50 size close ups , cos you really wouldn`t wanna see it that close as i tend just to throw things together to see what happens , i used the tail gearbox on the end of a shortened piece of boom so the belt can pass over then twist thru 360 degrees for the rear section to turn the correct way ,then same on the rear section facing forwards , as long as you keep the belt tightish and turn it thru 360 degrees ,thats what matters however ya do it , its hard to explain but if ya put it on the bench in front of you it should make sense , cheers ady

I've done this before with a couple Kyosho Concept30 heli's. Came out pretty good. Seeing this here has me contemplating another similar project. I don't have spare Raptors I want to convert, but I do have a couple Fury Extremes that I can't seem to sell. Pondering their conversion....
Maybe this should go over to the Tandem forum...?

Looks good, how is it for lifting power? Did you notice much difference when you attatched the other heli to it?

the little heli wasn`t noticed , weight wise , but as it rattled about it upset a gyro , i`ve now changed the gearing , put a new clutch liner in and made it flybarless ,so the lifting power should be better than ever , when ya stick the snout down and give it large , it shifts rather , had a better flight before the shown one but it weren`t video`d , next time she should start to rock
