Short answer: I don't know.

Longer answer: It's a POS. There is no price low enough for me to be interested in this helicopter. Walk away.

I can tell you it's not a Raptor. At least not a Raptor even close to stock. Most Thunder Tiger heads had the flybar above the blades - the X50 being an exception. If the head is incorrect the frame-set is even less Raptor. The plastic Raptor 50 was not a eCCPM helicopter. Again the exception was the X50 but it was a carbon frame set.

I'll be waiting to see what others say.

It's a Tiger 50. From Audacity. And that aint't no raptor. I don't think John supports the Tiger any longer, but you can check their forum or email them. You'll get a quick response.

YES Audacity!!! I kept thinking Ghobee but that was a Raptor clone right? Who made the Pantera? I keep seeing pics of that when I search the tiger 50. My vote goes for the Tiger 50....

I know its a POS.... I just wanted to investigate lol. I have been 1 foot out of the hobby since 2007ish. I had many Raptors and wrenched on 100's more for local people. I know them more than I know my family. lol

Not a bad Heli at all. I started my Heli addiction with a nexus 30 now that was a real junk even back then.

I just came across one of these raptor 50 clones at a swap meet, first I had seen as I am alil new to larger helis... it was reasonable and pretty tempting but I could just not do it with the experience I have had with other knock off clones...

Same here. Had to replace the clutch shoes and bell seems like every other flight until I purchased the "optional" clutch liner. If not that, it was always something else. But I learned to fly and trouble shoot on it even before there was a sim. So it was worth it.

Manual and parts are available:

A lot easier than looking for Raptor parts!
