I know some is going to ask so I thought I would be the first – LOL.

Serious though are they are parts in common between the Raptor series and the X50 or is everything 100% different?

Also we need a X50 option on the forum model selector. How do we make that type of a request or is that something that ACE will have to do?

The tail case looks similar, but other than that completely different and I would guess intentionally so

There are so few parts in common that I would say that the X50 kit itself is the upgrade from the V2. As was mentioned, the tail is about the same with the exception of the grips. The boom, supports, flybar, paddles and possibly the flybar control arms look to be carry over parts. That's about it really.

Quite the radical departure from the previous models. I'm loving it though.

I tried to take a good look at this at IRCHA. From what I could tell by looking these are all the parts that are interchangeable:
tail boom,
tail case,
rotor shaft,
yoke,
boom clamp,
boom supports,
main grips,
main shaft,
flybar,
paddles,
clutch bell,
starter shaft,
clutch,
fan,
belt pulleys,
belt
dampners,
and header tank
will fit Titan, Titan SE and the X50. All the the other parts appear to be different. The Kit is extremely light and appers to be very well built. I am looking forward to picking one up as soon as they are available.

Off the top of my head and from X50 stuff spread over our shop-

Similar bits:
Clutch
Fan
Main grips
Tailboom
Tail belt
Flybar
Tailcase
Tail pitch plate
Idler belt pulleys
Tail output shaft
Tail belcrank
Long TR control rod
Various bearings and hardware
Boom supports

The X50 can be fitted with a 6mm spindle, 6mm red dampers or two piece damper and bearings from the Titan SE in a pinch, but the 7mm is much better.Being 7mm means suitable bearings and dampers so this will factor in to a reconfiguration .

The X50 in a pinch can be fitted with the complete Titan SE rear end from the mechanics aft using the X50 supplementary metal clamp with the finless black rear boom support clamp.

The Titan SE tail hub/grip assy can be fitted in a pinch and stands up fine with the angular bearings. (The X50 has its specific hub/grip assy with 3 specialised bearings per metal grip)

I'm sure there are more TT bits that can be safely used but that is something I've not researched yet.

I'd had a look at the mast closely to see if it is universally useable or backwards compatable with the older models and it isn't.

The start shaft is the same.

It looks like some X50 bits could actually make your V-II better.I'm going to install the 7mm spindle/bearings/dampers/metal sup-boom clamp in my SE later this year.

Did anyone at IRCHA say anything about a Flybarless version or an EP version?
