I didn't like it at all, it was my first heli I hovered, and it was my friend that was hovering it too, it was like it's 4 or 5th time it hovered,, we found that the blade cracked and blew off, head speed was low, at the time there was other complaints on RR of the same problem,, well I had a few talks with TT and they would not replace the heli or parts,, the guy told me "That's the Hobby"

then I saw an announcement on Ron Lund's site about how he could not get Raptor parts, I Emailed Ron and in short told him my story, he Emailed me back and ask me to call him, in short I told him the story again and it turned out that Ron knows my friend that was hovering my Raptor at the time it threw the blade,, Ron told me to call him back in a couple hours because he was going to call TT and get me a new Raptor,, well he did, Ron got TT to replace my Raptor,, the thing is it took 5 months to get it because the kits and parts were not coming into the USA,, that was all back in 2002,, any hoo, that is when I went to Century, and the Century kit came with a set of $70 Carbon/Glass blades, all the bearings too, and metal swash, 6 bearing tail Grips, 4mm flybar, and it had a copy of the X-Cell head
