    raptor 50 v2 problems

    hi everyone, i just bought my first raptor 50. it was allready built but is new, question about blades, book says they use 600mm but this one has carbon fiber blades that are 650 mm. is that going to cause the heli to wag back and fourth and spin faster when you excelerate. i just dont see anything that is wrong with anything else. also, does any body have the same set up with radio and gyro. im useing a hitec eclipse 7 with a gy401 gyro. what should the settings be at for hover mode and the other ones. please help, sorry, also what would cause a rattle noise when starting to spool up but then stops after the blades are moving. thanks

    Belt loose is probably causing the noise.

    The Raptor should have 600mm blades, are you sure they are 650?

    http://www.raptortechnique.com has a ton of info on radio setups. Tail wag is a gyro problem

    Those blades could cause a blade strike with the rotor blades a 50 shouldnt have more than 600mm blades unless it is a titan 50 se then it could have 620 mm blades
    measured from the blade bolt hole

    I see this is an old thread, but the pin backing out of the tail pulley can cause the rattle/clicking noise similar to the belt.
