I'm flying my big Raptors much more these days and am interested in getting an open metal tail but I can't seem to remember where I saw those.

Is there another one? The Elevated R/C unit has been out of stock forever. Thats the one I remember seeing. I'm wondering about trying to fit the Frenzy 90 tail unit to the Raptor.

Colin Bell used to sell one. I have no idea how to track him down however. But if you find one, post here since I would like one for my R90SE as well.

That’s the advantage of an open box? I always thought it was a lot better to have a closed box to keep the dirt out of the gears.

Open tail on raptor 60 and 90
Hi Guys..Theres a real neat way to an open tail,and it don't cost anything.I've been doing this to all my raptor 60 and 90 for a long time,Just take an excto saw and cut a neat 3/4 by 1/4 slot on the left half of the tail box.You got to take it apart to do it.I cut it before I put the tail together.The raised part is about 1/4 back,just use that as a guide to cut.I can keep track of the gears.Good luck.

if you don't wack the tail into the ground you don't have a problem with the gears

That true,but it's nice to keep track of the wear,and if there is a tooth starting to break before it's to late.
