The price is good, I got a Raptor G2 from exceedrc (aka Walkera 36), with Brush Motor and NiMh battery. I don't know what is the difference with 60B, only price I guess. I couldn't make it take off more than 2 inch, now the motor doesn't spin. I order new batteries and new Motor too. Right now, I have 2 weeks without been able fly.

But my recomendation is to go one step further and spend a bit more money to get it with Brushless and Lipo Battery, I suggest Walkera 36 Pro, version. It is worth it, with spare parts and shipping it will cost me the same at the end.

Yes. I really agree with you. Going for original engine seems like a suicide. Better to upgrade to a better one instantly. I've found some differences between 36B and 60B, question is what is best?

Comparision: 36B - 60B
- Main Rotor Diameter: 622 - 620 mm
- Tail Rotor Diameter: 135 - 145 mm
- Overall Length: 600 - 600 mm
- All-up Weight: 600~635 - 570~620g
- Servo 36B: weight 9.1g / speed 0.12sec/60°/ torque 1.1kg/cm / dimension 22.5X11.8X27mm
- Servo 60B: weight 8.5g / speed 0.11sec/60°/ torque 0.9kg/cm / dimension 22.5X11.5X24mm
- And almost forgot Pricedifference: $10

That's the only difference I've seen. Is it better to have a larger Main Rotor diameter or a tail rotor diameter? I've heard some people had the tailrotor that hit the ground...

And what difference does it make with a 9.1g or 8.5g servo? Seems that 60B is lighter in general also...

I went with the 60, newer style frame and a better main rotor head(stock), i have two of them and left one alone and fixed up the other, thay both have a place. I really like flying my stock 60,for the money it cant be beat!

I owned a 4 channel ExceedRC Falcon 40 with NiMH batteries.
After the 40 or 50th flight, it too would only lift about 2 to 6" off the ground.
At first I thought it was the battery, but then it did it with the second battery, too.

I applied a very small amount of lubrication (WD40 or Break Free) to the bearingat the top of the rotorshaft and then turned the helicopter upside down and applied a little to the bottom of the shaft.

That helicopter then flew like it was brand new.

Try it, but be frugal.
