It depends on the quality of the clevises you have in your kit.
I have built four of Lanyu planes and in one of the kits the clevises were unusable. Deformed, bent and generally made from the lowest quality plastic that exists.
I usually replace them just to be sure.
The cost from HK is so low that it just not worth the risk to use the included clevises.

+1 on stock clevis replacement. I like the Dubros. If you must use the stock clevis, get some fuel tubing on them to lower the possibility of failure.

Hey alpha1, any chance I could see a picture of how you mounted/wired you RC rx on the wing? I can't get seem to reduce noise in my setup and need to reconfigure. Just wondering how you extended the wires and implanted into the wing. Thanks


This was my last test flight

I destoyed my wing the other day after going on a long journey and not having enough power to get me back home. It can be fixed but i'd rather get a new main wing. Fusealage survived.

Where can i get spare parts for the raptor? HK doesnt have any parts.

Sorry to hear that.
Regarding parts, I bought a set of raptor wings from a site in Sweden, but you are located in the States... So....

I couldn't find a site with spare part after I also shattered my wing. So I ended up purchasing a whole new raptor as a spare.
