Just finished up the power upgrads for the raptor gasser just in time for the arrival of spring. Added a futaba GV-1, failsafe switch, and upgraded from 4.8V to a regulated 5.9V.

Raptor gasser
Nice heli sir. Been watching your build for some time. I'm upgrading the power system on my Radikal 30 too. Thanks to Raja for that! Have a Raptor 60 just waiting to be converted.

Mine fall down, went BOOM!!

when you find a setup that works.. you tend to keep it. looks very good. now get that puppy off the bench and into the air!

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Thanks. It was in the 20's here this morning. Can't wait to give it a try. I set idle 1 rpm to 1600 and idle 2 rpm to 1800. Never flew with a gov before so this will be different. My only potential issue will be the need to flip the stator gator. Didn't start is up yet since the power upgrade. Servo speed is definitelly noticable on the bench. My next upgrade will probably be the canopy.

Heck, it took me over an hour just to figure out how to get these pictures uploaded. Every time i try to upload, i have to relearn the proces and always complications. Don't think i am ready to tackle a video.

Is the thing with the blue LED on the exhaust side your power switch? It's cool.
