Need Help again!! I am going to purchase my first Nitro tomorrow. I am getting a Raptor 50 with OS 50 SX-H, GY-401 w/ 9354 on Rudd. I just bought a XP9303 today and still trying to figure it out. Sorry back to the question.. Which should I get? and whats the differance between R 50 SE and the V2? All help and sugestions greatly appreciated.

The Raptor 50 SE comes with a few extra features, such as the carbon looking windshield for the canopy, the most important feature, the Thunder Tiger METAL head, metal washout base, carbon fins for tail.

The only really thing I would suggest getting is the Thunder Tiger metal head upgrade along with the metal washout base. Other then that, the other upgrades are not necessary at all.

It won't take you long to figure it out, your going to find that it is a very user friendly radio (your going to love it).

Get the v2 with a metal head, metal washout base and one piece tail hub (pv0499) The rest of the stuff on the SE is just bling.

http://www.ronlund.com click on Raptor News he did a write up on the SE
http://www.heliproz.com for great combo prices. If you can afford a couple more bucks get the hyper engine.

Thanks Everyone, Very Helpful.. The SE is only about $100 more. Can I get the metal head and washout cheaper than that? Also do they FLY any diferent? The SE says it is an extreme 3D. I am leaving now to go buy. I guess since I have some extra money I will get the SE. Also will the DS811 servos that came with the 9303 work ok?
Thanks, J. Schuster

You might as well get the SE, but now you need to go buy some carbon blades. You can stick with the stock TT Carbons for like $70 or get a nice pair of Vblades/Radix blades for around $110 but then again you wouldnt really need those starting out.
