Sold

Raptor 30 V1 Receiver Ready $350 shipped US or trade for Trex 450 Sport/Pro


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Up for sale is my Trusty Raptor 30V1. She has everything you need except a receiver and receiver pack, and she is ready to go! Looking for $350 shipped in the US, or trade for a RTF or receiver ready Trex 450 Sport/Pro. It is receiver ready to give you hours of flying enjoyment. I was debating upgrading it to a 50V2, which all those parts are here:

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1630768

But I decided not to do the upgrade and wanted to sell the Raptor 30 before I do anything crazy and crash it. I am the original owner, and this helicopter has given me many hours of great, stable learning experience.



Included:

OS .32 engine with approximately 6-7 gallons through it
Upgraded one-piece muffler
Futaba S9202 servos on collective, cyclic and throttle
Futaba S9253 servo on tail
Genuine Futaba GY401 gyro
SAB 550 carbon fiber blades
JR aluminum fuel filter

Extra Parts:
Left frame half
1 tail blade
1 set flybar hoops new in package
1 set aluminum flybar hoops
1 set aluminum head links
1 main shaft
3 flybar shafts, one of which is slightly bent
1 set standard flybar paddles
1 set white (lighter 3d) flybar paddles
1 bag frame hardware
2 vertical fins
1 main rotor hub
1 bag of link rods
1 bag link ends
1 bag miscellaneous tail rotor hub/tail pitch slider parts
1 new in package clutch shim


Full collection of detail pictures here: http://s37.photobucket.com/albums/e7...tor%2030%20V1/


Some things I feel the need to point out, also shown in the pictures:
There are a couple of superficial dents in the tail boom that don't affect tail operation
There is some anodizing flaking near where the landing gear mounts to the frame, from adjusting shape and readjustment after a hard auto
There is some damage at the starter coupling from a torque starter gone wild, no damage that affects operation
I cut a hole in the battery tray with a Dremel to allow a velcro strap to go through so that I could mount my Rx battery on the underside of the battery tray

Other points:
The tail hub separated a blade in flight, destroying the horizontal fin which was also replaced along with new tail rotor hub. The tail hub that was sent to me was for V2, so I had to modify it slightly (read Dremel) so it would work with the V1 setup. Have flown 1.5 trouble free gallons this way, no issues whatsoever

The head setup may need some adjustment, as this Raptor was most recently flown flybarless for a short time


This helicopter has been crashed twice:

Once in FF, was flying too low to see a trailer buried in the weeds. Caught the landing gear, destroyed landing gear and blades (hence the purple landing gear)

Once while learning nose in hovering, dumb thumbed it into the ground. Lost blades, tail boom, and cracked right side frame (hence the purple tail boom)

Sorry the 250 is a little small for what I might be looking for. I have an mcpx. Not quite the same but similar.

Yup I totally agree, they are very different. I would at this point prefer to have something a little bigger if I were to go electric. Who knows I may change my mind....can you PM me the specifics of the 250?

Sorry, probably not, mainly due to a lack of local parts availability. If I were to take a trade on this, I would be willing to take a trade for a T-Rex 450 with the right combination of model/electronics. Thank you though
