0 trim servo setup.

bellcranks that provide more linear head travel.

designed to be on the light end of the weight scale in their class leading to great flying and long flight times

batteries that click in with no shenanigans.

torque tube = zero static issues

low cost of ownership (E700 only)

Wish list:

Tail can be finicky to get locked in

better CG adjustment.

You changed the original post?!?

They do have a 500, noone knows about it
its called a e6-550 by JR.
it flys circles around a goblin 500 due to the fact its a pound lighter
shhhhhhhhh, dont let the secret out.

Just got mine after a buddy let me fly his a couple times I couldn't resist.

looks like about 70-80% shared parts design with the e820.

Own TT heli's since the Raptor 30 came onto the market. Their designs never have the most bling but you did not need to buy upgrades from the start for it to fly nice. Maintenance was also well thought out (only have experience on the plastic raptor and mini titan lines). They also had a good balance between performance and price, the e700 seems to be bringing them back to that balance and i have one on order. Bring more heli in with the dna of the e700, good quality flying heli at a reasonable price. Would like to seem them replicate the concept for a 600/550 and fill the product gap with a 500.

However I think a high quality low cost machine like the e700 that swings 500mm blades would be awsome

I would really like to see the 550 be redone in the form of the 700e also the 700e turned into a crazy light weight nitro.

I Think the E720 is a better heli than the E700 ( I did notice at ircha the boom supports coming off in flight on Nick and someone else, not sure if it was a build issue or not) so I would like to see TT get the parts costs down on the E720. Also get another (not replace) canopy design. I find alot of people think the canopy is ugly. Keep the yellow color but replace the red and green colors with colors more visible. Another thing let people choose the color and not be dictated to the electric is red and the nitro is yellow.

Been flying (and crashing ) TTs since the days of the nitro Raptor 30s. Good value for money, and relatively easy to repair.

Have not bought their electrics yet, but will be getting the E700. Nice, light heli, cheap parts, and available crash kit.

Like the idea of being able to choose canopy color.

Having a e700 size/ style nitro would be cool, but the 720 is less then 10lb equipped.
I agree with the canopy comment. As for boom supports I am not aware of any problems, and have had none with my model. I have quite a few hours on the e 700 and have no problems.
I would like to see something around a 500 size with the same design as the 700 very lite, inexpensive 6s,and appealing to all flying levels.
A new canopy design would be cool too. Something with a lot of color.

I just want to see the return of the Nitro G4 FBL.
.......and an FBL upgrade package for the R60/90.
After experiencing the difference in a Titan 50 upgraded to FBL, I want to do the same thing to my R90 with a factory head.

I love the smell of nitro in the morning.

I want to see more scale fuselages being distributed here in the U.S. Like the hind fuse!

i think tts price point on the new kits and parts are just terrible. i mean $50 per side frame on a x50, $1000 90 kit barebones with $90 a freaking one side frame!? jeez guess they are run by donald trump now cause the days of creating good helis that can fly well and crash well and not cost a fortune to fix seem to be over.

well i smashed my logo 600 up due to radio going faulty but only really pinned that down lately . ,so rather than re kit looking around , i thought ill give the thunder tiger 550s kit a go its the one with a flybar plastic head ,comes complete with motor servos, blades every thing except the tx & rx & 6s packs.cheap great value not bad looking model i think .
now i got to say the motor bearings failed in about 10 flights , but every thing else is ok had this thing bombing around getting it dialed in , but i have crashed it twice and it can take a hard smack real well i would say.
i done boom, all shafts ,blades ,on both smacks but that's it ,so very pleased just grounded now as i wait for my new futaba tx , i was with spectrum before but i lost trust in em ,parts are not to dear i would say for this heli ,well compared to mikado , but i do agree some frame prices on other models are very expensive.

I wish the Raptor e550S would be offered as an affordable flybarless kit

without electronics.

I liked the idea, that Kyosho used to have long time ago.

Nice looking plastic fuselages .

Like the Hughes 500 or the Bell 222.

They fitted perfectly on their helicopters with no need of modification.

Cheap with a real nice appearance.
