Default Raptor 30v2

I was looking for a Nitro heli. Is this Raptor 30v2 3D capable? If not what about the 50, 60, or 90. How hard are these to fly. I started with a Dragonfly #4, then a t-rex. Do you think I could handle a 3D nitro. If so, which one. I heard Raptors are good so I want a raptor not something else.

If you want to do 3D, why not do it with your t-rex? It'd be much more capable at advanced 3D moves than the Raptor would be, if only because of it's size and power to weight ratio (assuming you've got a good brushless motor on it).

Ive got a raptor 30 and I think they are better than the electric helicopters I have. I think you need at least a raptor 50 if you are into 3d

o i want a bigger heli, for more wind. And i love the sound of my Nitro cars, and would like that in heli's too.

I've seen t-rex's with power setups perform ballistic 3D moves faster than any nitro bird can. I don't own a t-rex, but from what i've seen, a micro electric is very well suited for 3D because of the huge power to weight ratios that you can achieve with them. A raptor is heavy and so the cylic response is slower in comparison. I'm not saying they're not suited for 3D, but for truly agressive 3D, I don't think you can beat a micro. Of course, they don't hold up well in much wind, so there is a tradeoff.

As far as sound, I think (big) electrics is way better than the ugly buzzing of a nitro motor . With electric you actually get to hear your helicopter beat the air into submission. With nitro, all you hear is, well.. the engine. [] That's just me though..

To answer your question, get a 50 with a 50hyper if you want to really ring it out.

I agree with cuda, I have a Trex, Evo 50 Hirobo and a Raptor30v2. If you want a hard 3D machine go with the set up cuda said.. .50 hyperaptor. If you want stability and tracking, go for a Hirobo Evo .50. Credence is right, the Trex will do anything 3D about twice as fast as anything else I own. But it better be a still day...
Take care,
Jay
