No,can't you read?It's horribly outdated.You need a new arf on 2.4 with computer mixing on every channel.Digitals must be on every surface and a gyro on the rudder.If your plane didn't cost $5000 and need to download to a laptop post flight,you suck.

My Raptor 50 is collecting dust in a MD530 Fuse. I want to build another from my spares.....

Why Hover a Yak, when a Heli does it better?

I have proof that at least one Raptor 60/90 and One Trex 700 can peacefully co-exist in the same air space..

You didn't have a problem with Align - you had a problem with the person selling it in NZ. Big difference.

I traded my brand new 450SE for a raptor 50 and the cost of crash repair is about the same wich is pretty sad .

The cost to reapir a 50 glow engine is nothing like the cost of a 450SE repair, you must be compairing and apple crash with an orange tip over, or you are getting Raptor parts at some insanely cheap price. I geuss if you have woodies on the raptor and carbon on the 450 it would help bring the costs closer together.

He's sort of new to heli's,you can just take what he says with a gain of salt. If he's happy with his old outdated raptor thats good.
it's pretty obvious what happened to the Raptor, the align and vibe came along.
