HELP! Wondering what my raptor is worth?
HELP! Wondering what my raptor is worth?

Hey all! Wondering what to do with my raptor v1 30? What's it worth? Getting out of the nitro hobby. I don't have the time anymore to fly my nitro raptor. I have three gallons of Curtis youngblood helicopter fuel. I would like to sell it locally with the fuel but wondering if I should part it out here on RR. I learned to hover with this helicopter it hovers like a 90 size helicopter. I posted it on graigslist today but I don't think I will get any hits the local flying field close to Wappingers Falls NY is now a housing development.
Raptor V1 air frame
Futaba 240 gyro
Futaba servos (that I would sell with the airframe)
spektrum 6200 receiver
OS 37 motor (that I would sell with the air frame)
some older woody blades??
Just wondering
This thing hovers great I was always afraid to fly it due to the lack of parts.

Please see pictures and post any comments

Thanks

I'd call that deal $250. The v1, 240 gyro, wood blades all kill it. Your best value is to fly it. There is nothing to be concerned about in regards to parts. The head easily becomes a v2 at your next crash and with different frame halves you can update the clutch. The tail is a non issue as well so all of the sudden you are flying, enjoying your gear and it's 50v2 from then on.

Don't sell it. Keep it.
Put some after run oil in the engine, cover the heli in a bag or disassemble it and put it in a bin or something to protect it. Then put it somewhere safe and sound for now.

If you want to sell it to help get something else, fine. But if you sell it now to get out of the hobby, in six months from now you might regret it!

Even if you don't touch it for a couple of years, it should be preserved (maybe minus the RX and TX batt). If you get back into the hobby and buy a better, up to date helicopter, you can refresh your flying skills on it before you fly the new one. Then sell/toss it if you want.

In this hobby, $250 is nothing.

My 2 cents.

I put a Raptor 50 tail on my OS37 powered Raptor 30. Fun little heli. I toss it around with abandon and it never lets me down.

I posted my Rappy 30V2 stretched to 50 size and was asking a reasonable price with field box, starter, spare parts, gallon of fuel and no bites. To sell it, it would be at a very low price, ie giving it away.

Decided to keep mine and sounds like you made the right choice as well.

Cheers,

Gord.
