Thanks for that but I have 3 raptor 50s and they don't look like that this one has a short drive belt.

It is a Futura Sport. You can tell by the flybar arm assy.

I found it interesting when I went to the vintage helicopter site, I saw a lot of pictures of one of my revolution .40's and the one kit I still have taken from my gallery, not that I mind. 😊

I have my own personal stash of Robbe parts. Contact me if you break something.

Also, the Futura Sport can use parts from the Futura SE, Millenium and Nova. Some have to be used in big chunks (the entire head, the entire tailboom). Some can be used in small chunks (crown gear, servo frame, ...)

I suggest you watch for a used Futura SE. They often go very cheap ($250), and can supply you with the parts you need to keep flying.
