Default MD500E Raptor

Hi all, I modified my raptor 50 to fit in a funkey 600 size md500 fuselage. I know this has been done by others before but I wanted to have a full cockpit and that required eliminating the front servo tray section. this also meant getting rid of the collective arm and all the bellcranks. I knew I would have to think outside the box on this so after removing the servo tray and a little of the forward section of the frames, I had to convert the control system to 120 degree eccpm. this meant relocating the cyclic servos by mounting them under the swashplate in the frames. everything else was easy, flipping the tail rotor to the other side and converting it to electric as well as adding the five bladed main rotor and 4 bladed tail. still have some detailing stuff to do but its flying quite well

I had the TT MD530 on an under power setup. It was a joy to fly in a scale manner;

The tiny "TT/MD-530" Innovator, I got hands on in second hand junk shop few years back, many hundreds of flights to date, still performing well.
