I fly when I can. I'm in no way a 3d expert or even fly 3d alot, I do mainly sport flying.

I have a Rap Titan with low/medium quality servos, a metal head and tail and CF blades with a hyper50. Are there any "economical" upgrades that would tighten the overal feel up a little bit?

Again, not looking for a 3d monster, but something a little more sporty..

Thanks!

Go to the Thunder Tiger section in this forum, plenty of info there on how to improve your Rappy.

What's loose? Where do you figure you can tighten it up?

Get some nice dampening, minimize control system slop, and pretty much you'll be there. Might cost 15 bucks to get new dampers, some new balls and links, maybe do some shimming here and there to tighten things up.

If the problem is servo resolution/slop, you may need new servos.

And if you mean make it more quick, well paddles and change to 3D blades might help there.

What exactly do you mean by tighten?

Install a high speed/torque servo to the pitch, and get the TT light "Green" or "red" paddle.. All others are very subjective to individual.. These should make it fly more responsively without the loose floaty cushioning feel..

Install a high speed/torque servo to the pitch
An excellent idea. One the great benefits of mechanical CCPM is exactly this. My R50's came alive with Airtronics 94758 servos on pitch (0.06s/107 oz").
get the TT light "Green" or "red" paddle
Another excellent idea.

What paddles do you have on yours now? Black? If so, change 'em to green.

They're significantly lighter and will liven up your cyclic quite a bit.

Stubs or tweek flybar ratio or better still, FBL. Chinese weights do wonders for the tail. PDS2123 or 8717 on collective to name but a few.
