Wonder if they are having a fire sale to clear as much inventory as possible?

I know they dont sell retail, but you never know until you call........

Around 2004 or 2005.
You had my curiosity peaked! I've been ordering from Tower/Great Planes since 1991 and have all their annual catalogs, I took the stack out from 2001-2008 because I don't remember them carrying Raptors back then. They sold Kyosho helicopters up until 2006. In 2007 they started to stock Century helicopters and did so up until recently. Thinking I was missing something I called Tower and they said they didn't carry the Raptor line before this year. Okay guys help me with some history and my own edification here.

They did have them before Century. I bought parts from them for my R 50 and 90. It was probably around 2004. They sold them at the same time as the Kyoshos.Nick Crego

They must have stocked it outside their catalog. Normally they have everything in there. Thanks for bringing me up to speed Eury! Wayne - Fly it like you stole it! You're in good hands with Runryder!

I have the 2001 and 2003 catalogs and they show the raptor 30 and 60.
I would think they would also be in the 2002 one but I don't have that year. They don't show any replacement parts, just the heli's.

Tower has always sucked for helis. I did get some good deals on Futaba receivers and OS engines from them over the years by using their discount coupons.Wolves don't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep

I have to disagree... When Tower Hobbies carried Hirobo helis, they offered a full line of parts for Hirobo helis...

When Tower Hobbies carried Thunder Tiger, they had a full line of parts...

When Tower sold Miniature Aircraft (X-Cell), they offered a full line of parts...

When they sold Kyosho helis, they offered a full line of parts.

When they carried Century, they had a full line of parts...

I could go on and on... But you get my point.

And for the most part, the prices were just as good as everyone else. The only thing they have done wrong, in my opinion, is not sell "popular" helis in the last 10 years... But the ones they did sell they did a great job on.
