hello everyone,

I have a raptor 90 se gasser conversion and I have a lot of cnc upgrades on it. I have the cnc tail pitch slider and blade grips but the links between the two are the original plastic ones, its creating slop in the tail and makes the tail wag in flight no matter what other adjustments are make.......

has anyone seen or have for sale cnc tail pitch links for the raptro 90??

2-stroke is no joke.

I highly doubt that the plastic links are causing your problem. Most likely your heli has vibes from some place causing the issue.

I did have a similar problem using a carbon boom though, it ended up that I had to add a third bearing to the torque tube.

I will have to check that as well, I am not sure if it has that third bearing in the tube or not. thanks for the tip

the plastic links are loose because the screw that holds them to the blade grips are smaller fo the CBC aliminum ones over the standard plastic ones

Well if you are unhappy with the stock TT tail parts you could replace the whole unit with an Align Trex tail. I did this long ago to get away from the two piece plastic grips and to get thrust bearings in the tail grips.

that is a great idea. I assume it's the full tail piece off a 700n? do I have to do anything to get the gears on torque tube to work with the align tail gears?

No, you use all your stock gears and tailshaft. All you need is the tail hub assembly and yoke w/links. Actually I used the stock yoke and links and just replaced the tailhub/grips assembly for like $18.

The thing is I believe you CAN get metal links for the Align helis.
