Post Manuel for my thunder Tiger raptor 50?

Hello, I recently got a Thunder Tiger Raptor 50 off of eBay and it's in pretty good condition, the only problem is, I'm having a hard time trying to find the manual for it, if anyone could let me know of the specific make of this Heli, I would be grateful. Thanks. Here are the specifications,

HTR metal head, OS 50, MP5 50 Exhaust, Futaba S3003, Align DS620, Futaba S3050 x3, GY401 Gyro, AR8000 DSM2 receiver. Align RCE-B6T 2 in 1 Voltage regulator with ignitor. A black tail boom with white tail fins and black tail control rod supports and grey tail supports. No base plate. White landing gear legs with grey landing gear skis. White auto rotation pully.

I've missed ya' Thunder man. However, just FYI I've a titan that I crashed seriously and one titan boom to fix it. so It will be my last TT Titan50 repair. I've been working on for months. the rudder servo actually burnt up somehow and had to replace
. I'ma post pictures tomorrow and hope to have it back in the air this weekend. Also I'm gonna try that 7.4 battery pack I posted. Here's what I started with last month

Nice work on the titan, sucks that it crashed but that's the hobby

I'm going to try and get my raptor to almost new condition for the fun of it, it's like buying a used car and breathing new life into it. Heck I haven't even flown it and I'm still having fun.

Default Crash

I had a lucky crash with mine last month, the 3mm Allen screw holding one of the tail blades ( carbon blades ) sheared off with the blade and it started spinning around at around 30 metres, I flicked the auto rotation switch and the engine stopped as it 'flew' into the trees, it 'landed' nose down in the only bush and not even my new Trex 700 canopy was damaged, I got a complete tail rotor free from a club member,, talk about luck !

thanx bru. they are for sure a must for anything harder than a feather landing.the way the the raptor is made, the main frame will want to separate on a slightly hard landing. .. However use the stiffener, and you're golden
Back in my titan:
A new main shaft, new feathering shaft, new boom (last one) new 9254 rudder servo, new fuel and header tank. new flybar paddle shaft, new main blades new 7.4 lipo battery, new skids, both sides. New frame stiffener. A whole lot of TLC!!! lets do this!
gonna' hover tomorrow weather permitting.
I'll get the laser guy to do you one too if u want. send me your address and I'll send u one .

The metal stiffener is really cool, is it aluminum?

There's no need to, but thanks anyways, I'm probably going to look for a carbon fiber one, it's just, I don't know if it will fit on my heli, I have an align 50 with a blue head

Nice collection, it's good that you have experience in raptor helis, you'll be able to show me the way of the raptor

The raptor helis are really cool, glad I got one.

Eventually I'd like to get my hands on a raptor 90 someday

I've seen them fly and with heavy servos, they're bad ass. .. Only trouble is, Suck down the nitro like there's no tomorrow. However I've seen there are Gas Conversions
to the 90

I've got 8 minutes on a 50 being conservatives with the throttle. they do have a larger tank vs. the 30 .. HOWEVER, the 30 with a os32 flys forever. like 18 minutes. the os 37 flys about 16 minutes. again being conservative with the throttle. not an official comment but I feel the 30's last twice as long as the 50's. the 90'3 with a way larger tank flys for about 5 minutes.

My shop near my place has 33% nitro rc car fuel, is that good for a heli engine?

I'd say no. Helicopter fuel should have a higher content of oils to cool the engine.
