Great flying there I loved the short landing after the flips, at around 2.57... That was so cool! It's an awesome heli, I have two of those beauties and I just love them

But the Raptor wasn't dead!:):):)

sorry he must have used photo shop
so all the guy's at my club tell me a raptor is to old, to heavy, to slow and to out dated to do that great flight
you need to be a sheep an use a trex to do that type of flying

well done
the raptor 90 is still a great heli

well done stefan,I like the pause in the middle of the flight,it definately changes up the routine a bit.

it's better to ask for forgiveness than for permission

90-3D flight
Great flying Stefan. Your piro-flips look really good. It was cool to see you doing so many of them consecutively. Most pilots do two or three and move on to another manuever. You just kept rockin those piro-flips and it looked awesome!

No doubt, skids down at 2:57 was a "Five Star" move!
Clean and well executed!

well today i have been flying my raptor 90 , practicing my set manoeuvres, freestyle and music for the 3d masters, and today been the first time i have flew for 3 weeks the raptor reminded me how awesome it was
dont get me wrong the 700 is a good model but i had the gear box fly apart last time i flew it ( tail blade grip bolt snapped lucky i landed it ), but the raptor is more reliable, more percise and it looks better

i hoping to buy another one new or second hand, but new would be better.

thanks stefan

Hey Mr Simmonds,

Can you please stop doing that with your Raptor. You know that it can't 3D,its old, heavy and un-trendy

The Raptor 90 3D is the best value 90 machine on the market. Some of the Align boys should try it and see what a reliable,interaction free, quality machine feels like

Great Flight!

It was hard to listen to the SZ, looked like it was makin a ton of power but sounded lean when it was inverted alot of the times, same as I remember my old SZ.

That deckwork was sick son! Loved the quickstop to the ground and the auto at the end. Nice control, The Raptor looked SICK !!!

Hey Stefan,

What blade/paddle combination are you running? I take it it is the standard raptor 3d set up regarding the head and dampers?
