I just received this information on the new Raptor 30 V2 Pro. As you know, the Raptor line has been available for many years, and they are committed to improving and upgrading this great line of helicopters. Here is some information I’m sure you will find useful and interesting if you are looking for a late Christmas present for a heli enthusiast.
The new Thunder Tiger Raptor 30 V2 Pro ARF Heli has all of the performance features that have made the Raptor one of the most popular helicopters in R/C – and being Receiver-Ready means the servos and gyro are already in place. Just install a receiver and go!
The Raptor 30 V2 Pro’s performance upgrades include:
§ Heavy-duty collective pitch arm
§ Enlarged radial and thrust bearings for more precise blade pitch control
§ Tail rotor grips (the same size as the Raptor 60) that allow for a larger diameter tail rotor and more solid control
§ A swashplate re-designed for more durability and less free play
§ A larger (340 cc) fuel tank positioned to reduce CG shift
§ Enlarged engine starting shaft
§ Strengthened side frames for better crash resistance and less engine vibration
§ Larger diameter metal alloy spring steel clutch
