Just wanted to say how much I am liking flying the Raptor 50 Titan SE - I have had the machine just over a year and it's taken until now to sort out all the issues that I have had with main gears, tail booms, ACE governor, Redline 53 engine etc etc.

This weekend the weather in my part of the UK was very good I managed to get about 7 flights in with the machine and I am really starting to gel with its handling. So much so that for the first time in a while I came away from the flight area today slightly shaking with adrenaline, what more can I say.

My final config for this machine has been to mate it with a carbon tail boom, OS55 engine and the Revlock RL10 governor - they all work perfect together.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Care to detail some of the issues you had that took a year to resolve? I am thinking about Titan 50 SE and I am bit surprised that there were issues with a mature design.

Raptor SE
Do yourself a favor and read the other posts that talk about the gearing and pinion problems. I have two emails into TT in Taiwan asking about the fix.

If you want a trouble free heli that will set up great and run many gallons through it, the Raptor SE is not a good choice.

Airwolf2009 has more patience than I. I have been dicking around with the problems since April with still no resolve.

Spend a couple hun more for the Miniature Aircraft Fury 55, made in USA.

I have seen the pinion/main gear problems but that does not explain all the other issues: tail boom, governor and engine.

Its only the main gear thats a problem,TT have made a new gear and sending one out to me,besides that the Titan se is the most stable durable heli i have ever flown,not to mention how strong its built,comparing to my trex 600 the Raptor quality is 10 times the quality of align.
