Got my first Raptor today! It is a Raptor G4, with an OS 105...

For sure one of the nicest heli's I have owned can't wait to get it in the air!

Will be using

CGY 750
Futaba 451's on cyclic
Align 750h for tail hoping to pick up a 251 or 256 soon
Gryphon Extreme Regulator

I just realized it looks like I have to use a different sensor than the one that came with the 750 for gov... can anyone tell me what one I need for this heli? thanks

Very Nice! I just traded a few things for a trex 700N brand new and a Raptor 90SE coming in the next few days. It has been well over 10 years since I have messed around with nitro. Been flying electrics for the last year after not flying heli's for over 10 years. I am excited to hear the nitro engine roar to life and those big as* blades spooling up.
Gonna scare the crap out of me the first time I am sure! Messing around with the little electrics is going to be a big change.

Still learning to fly

If you are not going to use the stock sensor that came with the CGY750 then the Futaba BPS-1 is the one you should use. It plugs into the backplate of the 55HZ, the 91 HZ and the 105 HZ. I just built a new Raptor X50TT with an new 55 HZ-R and put my old but hardly used GV-1 on it, the GV-1 govenor uses the same sensor that comes with the CGY750. If that sensor goes out I'll be sticking a BPS-1 in the backplate of my 55 HZ-R.

Just about ready to go just waiting on the servo horn for the carb.... Anyone know if you are supposed to loctite the clamp screw for the cyclic servos? the book only shows it going on the little set screw?

I tried to wire it nice but not much room when using the Gryphon Extreme

Look great! You will love this machine, it's like 200mph glass :-) The day I give up my G4s is the day they pry them from my cold dead hands.... or maybe when they come out with the G5 LOL.

On the gov, I used the sensor that comes with the CGY750 on mine. Just had to add one magnet to the fan and then mount the sensor to the motor mount. It works perfect. You can, as mentioned, use the backplate sensor too, it is a very clean install, but no need to not use what you got.

Lets us know how you like it.

PS, if you don't get after me for not having this machine clean... here is a pic of my mounting on my YS engine.

Really nice setup, don't mean to be eagle eyed, but in the pic your CGY sensor does not look parallel with frames.

Good catch..

That does look a little off. If it is off the way it looks you will get some unwanted elevator interaction in axial roll maneuvers and unwanted aileron input in flip maneuvers. You want that sensor exactly perfectly in line with the axis of the tail. Its not like the older tail gyros that only had the bottom of the sensor plane to make sure was right. All three axis must be true.

It would be worth blowing the extra mount pad you get with the CGY to fix that if it is off some.

You're going to really like the way it flies. BTW, the Rail Blades feel very good on this machine.

The only things you actually have to adjust are the cyclic pitch range of the cyclic in rate mode (I run mine at +/- 12), the collective pitch range, set your high/mid/low pitch markers and aileron right stick elevator back markers.

Make sure your gyro is correcting the correct way on each control. Leave it on flight mode 3. Make sure your piro comp is set the correct direction. Set the tail limit (mine is 100/100). Set your radio gains (I am running 80 on elev and aileron on both AVCS and Norm, 70 on tail). Everything else is default for the 700 sized machine settings.

Both of mine are flying on this setup and work awesome. For some reason the G4 and the CGY750 are like chocolate and peanut butter, they just seem to go together.

I'll have to find some. A lot of spectators have taken video, but I rarely do at all. Let me see if I can find any links to any of my G4s.
