That motor has way to much power for the raptor..You won't get much bigger than a 8" prop on the plane

IT will fly...Might start to be a bit of a flying brick, you will have to fly a bit faster to keep it from stalling

Did yall have problems with the plane climbing? I am using one 3,2200- Zippy. Even when coming by on a low pass i am constantly holding down to keep the nose level. I did add some lead weight but didn`t help much. Surfaces all even and level. When i go WOT from idle it will go down for a sec. until i react to it. May hook 2, 3 cell 2200`s in parallel to add weight. Need opinions. thanks

your battery is too light for the plane so its tail heavy but another battery or wights or a bigger battery, i use 4000mah 3s battery and its great.

I use a 35-42 1450kv and 650w... yes, pretty big, but flies very well. I use 2 2200 3S batteries, and the balance is perfect, the only problem with this setup is that i cant hand launch it, but its no problem, since I take off from every surface without a landing gear , only tape.

And as seedo have said, if you have flaps on you could fly slow, but without them, you need to have some speed.

Saludos!

Hi guys, today I made my maiden.
It is 1.75 kgs with fpv gear. I really impressed with its flight character.
I opened a small air inlets for cooling ESC. Name: ImageUploadedByTapatalk1335203641.881154.jpg

First of all I learned it does need flaps ( I have)

I like ....
Very easy for hand lunch.
Fly fast with stock motor and prop and climbs very well.
Stable in landing and does not stall easily.
I dislike
Stock Esc
Stock motor ( vibrates much)
Rudder connection is weak damaged after landings. Name: ImageUploadedByTapatalk1335203780.092359.jpg

Can anyone advice me the best way to repair and strengthen it?
(should I put hinge or just band it?)

Thanks

I cut the angle of the rudder more on the bottom , about 20 mm up at tip.

Stops it touching the ground
