Try these guys
Got parts for my E550 from them in 8 days. Seems like they handle mostly the 50 size on down from what I see.

UPDATE, received other pkg from Taiwan not the one I was expecting. Sent request to Heli-Kraft to update tracking number. Got back note they hadn't shipped it yet. It's shipped now, 8 days after ordered. SO IF YOU USE THESE GUYS, get tracking number and send email making sure it was shipped. Not happy, but what can you do?

Come on HRP, it's May and many of the parts for the 2015 current TT helis are out of stock. Your TT Banana has gone from green to yellow. You screw around 2 or 3 more months the banana will be brown and you're stuck with all that TT stuff. Us banana eaters will have moved on to eat peaches.

Yea that is the site that I finally found the FBL head for the mini. Looks like we are going to have to go overseas to get what we want.

HRP did you bite off more than you can chew or are you guys just lazy?

Even HELI-KRAFT in Taiwan is having to deal with TT
Ordered some parts for the TT e550 3blade from Heli-Kraft in Taiwan on 5/2/15 and was wondering where they were. Contacted yesterday by email and they answered back 6 hours later when they opened. Got back email that order was finally filled and shipped last night. My question to them is why the 8-9 day delay? Here's the answer I got back.
-------------------------------------------
Hi,

We are sorry for the delay.

The order was held up waiting for delivery of PV1384
from manufacturer.

There is nothing we can do to speed things up as the goods are not stocked well and has to be imported from China.

As this model is no longer mainstream, parts are getting rare.

--
If there is anything else that we may be of service please let us know.

Thanks and have a nice day,
---------------------------------

This part is a blade grip lever arm and used on several Thunder Tiger helicopters. "And it is in short supply?" If a Taiwan based heli supplier is having trouble, no wonder HRP is having problems.
WTF is going on at Thunder Tiger? If this doesn't get cleared up by IRCHA this summer, I will be telling folks to run for cover and pick another company & heli to fly.

OK then my apologies to HRP. So the company that you bought your heli from is doing this! Sounds like an Outrage event. I have a velocity sitting down stairs with the same fate facing it.trex 700fbl cal30,minititan,, trx600fbl,trex250,logo 500,Velocity N2

Interesting topic. You know I caught on to this trend when I started in helis, back in 1999. It seems they make a run of parts, make kits from them and when it is gone, it means get another heli.

For instance, Excel, TSK, Hirobo, Kyosho, etc...

What I did is decided I'm not going to follow along with this 'disposable, expensive, high quality equipment.

Since then I have stayed with the Raptor 30s and 50s. I collected them just for parts. I have 4 that are flying and 5 or more for parts support.

When I use that up, I may just quit.

Is what is being revealed now why Great Pains dropped TT?

When a well known independent manufacturer ends up with Tower Hobbies it all but seals their fate that they are on the chopping block. I don't know the reasoning behind their tactics but their track record with other brands is not very good. Carl Goldberg comes to mind as one of the companies that Tower has eliminated.trex 700fbl cal30,minititan,, trx600fbl,trex250,logo 500,Velocity N2

The decision for Hobbico to cease distributing TT was made by TT, not Hobbico.

I am not too upset about this. My X50 is the only TT in my hangar. I love to fly it, but I can't keep up with all my helis anyway. Fuel is just crazy expensive compared to the life I get from lipos nowadays anyway. Mine can rest on the shelf until the dust settles or beyond if it never really does.

My other glow heli is a Trex 700N, which is a bit easier to get parts for. Not nearly as easy to work on...love how easily the engine drops out of my X50. But, can get anything for it I want.

Still flying and buying parts for my TT's
But just to hedge I did sell off a NIB e700 V1 2 months ago and after coming back from Big D's event sold off a NIB e700 V2 Monday.
Rumors weren't making me happy.

Awfully quiet out there in Raptorland

What is the announcement regarding? No more nitro? No more helis? TT choosing to distribute direct to the US without HRP? What?

I wasn't at Mid America. What were the rumors?
