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

flydawg 11-04-2021 04:46 PM

this was the most expensive part of this repair


flydawg 11-04-2021 04:49 PM

where I'm at right now

Thunder man 11-04-2021 08:54 PM

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.

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 !:cool:

All Day
Turned out to be an all day job, I'll try hovering in the morning :)

I've one flybar paddle upside down !https://cimg6.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rcu...3fb0819023.jpg

flydawg 11-05-2021 05:45 PM

Never used a pitch gage, always worked out perfectly

flydawg 11-05-2021 05:55 PM

Skid stiffener, made on the laser at work out of aluminum my dxf file.

Thunder man 11-05-2021 06:23 PM

That's pretty cool, nice work, I'm thinking of getting a frame stiffener too

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?

flydawg 11-06-2021 01:33 PM

yes aluminum. and thanks, I'm going to redesign it a little. I'll send u the DXF file when I do.

Thunder man 11-06-2021 02:59 PM

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

flydawg 11-07-2021 11:26 AM

20 mph wind gusts. . added a final touch! found that in the garage. :)

My Complete Fleet of Raptors:

my complete fleet of raptors, no more tricks up my sleeve, YET!

Thunder man 11-07-2021 12:26 PM

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

flydawg 11-07-2021 12:40 PM

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

Thunder man 11-07-2021 12:50 PM

How long can a raptor 50 fly for? assuming you're just doing some sport flying

flydawg 11-07-2021 12:54 PM

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.

Thunder man 11-07-2021 02:28 PM

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

flydawg 11-07-2021 02:36 PM

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

Thunder man 11-07-2021 02:40 PM

What would be a good place to get nitro fuel online then?

flydawg 11-08-2021 01:46 AM

I've bought 4 gallons from AMAIN hobbies. shipping is very expensive. there's got to be a better way?

Thunder man 11-08-2021 06:31 AM

Probably not, otherwise I would need to go for an expedition to mount Everest to get some where I live,

I'll probably go for this on Amain Hobbies

PowerMaster 15% Helicopter Fuel (23% Synthetic Low-Viscosity Blend) (Six Gallon)

flydawg 11-08-2021 03:47 PM

FML.. I never seen that. I'd probably shoot for the same
I'll be Damned. Thanks Friend. I'll be getting:

PowerMaster 23.5% Helicopter Fuel (23% Synthetic Low-Viscosity Blend) (Six Gallons) or what you're getting.. Thank u Very much

TBH 30% isn't all that for just putt puttin'. LMAO 9 years ago all I ever ran was 20% and LOVED it.

Thunder man 11-08-2021 07:26 PM

If I'm right does the higher percentage of nitro fuel give you more power?

Thunder man 11-11-2021 06:16 PM

I made a new general thread so I don't get off topic with the title of this thread
