Who is the USA Thunder Tiger Distributor?
Trying to find parts for my Raptor 30 V1. Can't find any raptor 30 parts on their website at all! Looks like all are electric now?

Thanks for any info......

I just noticed this info on another Runryder post...Looks like they may have your parts...I have never bought parts from them so can not vouch for their service or reputation...

There was a recent thread where HeliKraft was being discussed. Mostly good comments..... do a search and you'll find it...

When our group (years ago) was flying the Raptors, we periodically placed "group orders" from HeliKraft and got terrific prices and good service..... Fast forwarding to current day, I can't personally vouch for them as I have not ordered from the in years....

As an alternative source of parts, you might want to check Ebay from time to time and I would also suggest that you make a list of what you need and start a new thread in the "wanted" section here and on HeliFreak.......

I'm sure there is still a good supply of parts around but you just have to root them out...... Don't forget that you can purchase an entire used Raptor (or a crashed Raptor) and cannibalize it for parts.....
Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

Try Ron's RC Helicopters
I just ordered some R30 V1 parts from Ron Lund (http://www.ronlund.com). Supplies are dwindling, so as advised above, keep checking EBay for individual parts or a complete unit.

Some Parts Found
Thanks guys, I'll check them out. I did find and order landing skid set and tail rotor hub from Ron Lund RC. Still looking for the body clip that holds the canopy to the front skid brace...
Bought the horizontal and vertical fin set on Ebay.

Yea, last flights were in 2008...I think!
Lots of things have changed! Using my Phoenix Simulator and my old Raptors to get back in the game while I contemplate my next heli purchase.....

Thanks for the help!

Dare I say it, but another search item you might want to include is for "gohbee". They were a real POS knock-off of the Raptors. Many parts interchangeable, and terrible quality. However, a canopy clip isn't really critical, so you may be OK with a gohbee part if you can find it.

Good luck.

Raptor nitro parts
A bit of info. Gohbee and Thundertiger helicopters are made by the same factory in China, and designed by the same engineer. Also Thundertiger is a marketing company like Nike shoes, and not a manufacturer.

Parts Found
Thanks JB! Searched Ebay for Gohbee Body Clips and there they were! Ordered 2 sets for $3.99 each. They look just the same but black instead of white plastic.

Thanks guys!
