Just got mine Saturday,opened it up and got busy.the heli went together rather quickly and I enjoyed the build.But there are a few "opinions" here and a few things I've noticed that will interchange over from other raptor versions.
to be such a nice kit,I was disappointed to see the same plastic tail pulleys from previous versions.
1.out with the plastic pulleys,in with the ones off my titan 50se.
2.plastic fan.nothing really wrong with that,but this heli is supposed to have it all.out with the plastic fan,on with the TT metal fan off my Raptor 50.Nice.
3.plastic blade grips.TT makes some,but they really are not much to look at,tried the ones off my rappy 50.Just doesn't match the beautiful x50 head.So,I will be using the ones that come with the kit.
4.plastic tail case.Had the nice Mavverikk one on the titan se,works good on the X50 as well,now we can sport the x50 metal tailshaft pulley.
now if we could get ahold of some metal bearing blocks.....
the landing gear,I wasn't too crazy about either.looks like it would'nt take a hard landing very well.Let's hope we don't have to test that LOL.
Things I do like about the kit.
Great manual,very good detail and drawings.liked the actual sizing on the bolts,match and go.
Glad to see minimal screwing into plastic,everything else was machine screw into metal.
Good looking canopy,with nice thumb latch on bottom.
very nice head,capable of +-15.very nice tail grip assys.
came with good blades for the head and some stiff plastic ones for the tail.
here's my total set-up
O.S.hyper 50(broken in and running strong from another heli)
Curtis MP5SB pipe
Futaba bls451 on cyclic,and throttle
Solid G Gyro,Futaba tail servo
2200 mas 2s lipo
Castle Pro Bec
I have flown a few set-up tanks this morning,before work and believe I will like this heli as much as my 3g Trex600.
it's better to ask for forgiveness than for permission
