Hi, I know it's a bit late for this, but I've just noticed that the pitch control on these models is on the leading edge whereas the nitro Raptors I have had, were on the trailing edge. Anyone know the reasoning. Just interested that's all.

4x90
Well the motor is part of the reason, especially when you do the swashplate mod. It was a guy named Sebastian long ago that inspired this with Aling.

Thanks for the reply bros, but I haven't a clue what you are on about. What does the motor or swash plate have to do with it. As far as I can see they have flipped the top mixer arms to move the main blade link to the leading edge. I note that this is present on the Titan as well.

Wakes up the rotor head
Flip it and try yourself, cyclic feels more responsive. Motor placement causes movement of swash orientation as well compare to 4x90 as compare to the 140 swash setup. I won't go into the mixing base that flips as well from leading and trailing. Pop your links at swash level and try by hand.
