TRU Air Raptor ROG mod!....with Video(s)


Hard to believe but this plane will ROG with the rite wheels! It also will Taxi and land on the wheels...easy mod that makes it a new plane IMO.

3 wheels should do it..


Added the front wheel..if wind stops blowing will try for a ROG video..this seems like a cheap and easy mod..too bad Fast Lane didn't do the mod as they would have had a hit on there hands

2 channel Twin motor ROG plane!

Yea..with a few mods its a very good plane..EPP foam is the ticket on this plane..very rugged!..just needs 5 cells and 3 wheels..I'm using the 5 cell pack from a Venom Potez Bomber..it turns out that was the best piece of that plane..This plane is SUPERIOR to the Venom micro warbird series planes IMO..

10 minutes max...This plane will fly VERY high(300'+)..If you get it up high and cut back the throttle it can stay up 10 minutes..the stock plane barely flew 2 minutes and could only fly 30' off the ground..there was a good breeze in the video too(8-mph)..that will decrease flight time also..I'm using 5cell 150mah pack..It could haul say 220mah..and that would increase flight time..but 10mintes is fine..I have 3 packs so that gives me a total of 30 minutes..thats enough for me..and no..a lipo will not work..

this one has a landing and a ROG.....

thanks dude! I glad you like it..I know I do...I have been meaning to do the wheel mod for some time and finally got around to it today..the wheels are from a retired "SkyFly"..but similar wheels are made by DMI and you can get them at a hobby shop...and while your there..get some 2mm CF rod and make sure the wheels are 2mm bore hubs..sometimes you have to drill them to 2mm..

the battery mod and other good info is here.........https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=712451
