Don't do it at all. Stay with the FB. Flybarless has it's issues, it is not worth ruining a raptor.

Mnc1,

Let me know if you need help with the conversion. You can also contact Scooterpilot here on RR for a firsthand account of the tremendous performance attributes of the conversion.

The link above is to the X50 flybarless rotor head conversion, stock# LXBMDZ on Towers site. The OP needs the one for the Raptor, stock# LXBMEA on Towers site or TT part# 3926. 3926 contains the necessary main shaft to fit the flybarless head to a Raptor. LXBMDZ doesn't have the Raptor flybarless mainshaft and does have some X-50 parts the OP doesn't need. Both heads have the same price.Allen Dye

I am going to go TracX on my Raptor.

I know of two people who have done it now, and it works quite well.

The Raptor is a bit old, design-wise, but is extremely reliable, and worth the cost of the upgrade, IMHO.

I hope to fly mine for many years to come.

I used the TT FBL as the upgrade with the CGY750. The TT.30 flies like a whole different machine. The flip/roll rate increases, the inflight stability using the FBL system reduces the pilot work load and increase the fun factor.

I have an OS37 with the Hatori pipe and the power is crazy for this size model.

I have converted a Raptor 30 to FBL using the RJX head. Cheap as chips from Hobby King. It is very easy to do as it goes straight on and the links they provide down to the swash are a perfect length.

I am using a Spartan Vortex.

I have to agree that the roll and flip rate is pretty amazing compared to when it had a flybar.

Even a homebrew FBL conversion is worth doing. It makes the Rappy fly so much better!If you skip me I can't play!
