RE: raptor v2?

Hi Larry

Haven't heard of one coming out - and as they are only just over a year old then I wouldn't expect a new release for some time yet.

The old V1's are easily upgradeable to V2 parts...

RE: CSM v10 Raptor Specs

Thanks for your input guys.

Does anyone have the specs of their setup written down that I could enter in my CSM?

Both LHS's that I first visited enquiring about Heli's, told me that 'heli's are very expensive and you will not enjoy flying them'.

RE: Raptor 30 V2 29 ball bearing vs 49 ball bearing

Both options are okay for a learner.

I would rather spend a little extra and know that my model will be easier to fly and last a bit longer with the 49bb set.

RE: Planes vs. Helicopters

Have buddy boxed both planes and helis and prefer Heli's (although as everyone has said they are very frustrating)
