Just received the latest issue of RC Heli magazine and it has a small write up on the X50.

CF frame, optional torque tube tail drive, 120 eCCPM with optional 140, push-pull on eCCPM servos, new head design, standard Raptor Titan boom and tail.

I will be waiting for the EP version. With Align now making a 250, 450, 500, 550, 600, and 700 EP and offering flybarless options on them Thunder Tiger really needs to beef up their EP line if they want to stay in the game.

Working out the bugs For those that are thinking the delay in release of the X50 will result in a problem free heli Your so called dream machine might just turn into a nightmare. Why start over you already had a perfect design. Waiting patiently for the I told you so

I would expect that TT would go from the current EP helies (E550/E620) with plastic frames to new EP helies with CF frames to compete with Align.

Align EP’s are selling like hot cakes and TT needs to make a product that will compete with them. I am really surprised that TT has not marketed a 500 size EP. Those seams to be the most popular helicopter these days.

Watching the video, is it me or is this heli flies just same as the titan 50 se ?

It is hard to comment just watching the video but there's actually nothing that x50 can do and titan 50 se can't . Now that still keeps me thinking if I really want fragile and expensive CF frame on my raptor.

TT electric helis are good, the real problem is the price. Cheapest raptor e620 costs like twice the amount of a rex 600e . It's not a new heli that we want. We need combos including servos, gyros, motors with affordable prices.

I agree, if TT can’t make a helicopter that’s about the same price as Align then they are doing something wrong. I would expect that the X50 would be the same price as a Trex 600 nitro.

For some reason the Raptor is getting hard to sell because of the plastic frame. Also everyone wants a torque tube tail drive. It might not be logical but that’s what sells. That’s forcing TT to make a CF frame and redesign the tail drive to stay in business.

X50
Hey Ben, the X 50 will be a little more money, because it will be made from superior parts compared to the 600. It will have much better bearings, frames and head than the 600.

I have seen the X90 mentioned on other forums. Does TT actually have a prototype flying?
