Ok guys, a while back i did a basketcase Raptor 30, So i did it again, i found 2 Quick 30's, that i should be able to make one good flying Quick pro 30 carbon ???? I hope, i got a low butget...again,
ALSO !! if anyone has a quick 30 out there, i will have some good spare parts, we can work out a deal.....caz 1 of these needs partsNEEDS for the build
quick 30 canopy....or somthing that will fit..
3 cyclic servos .....I GOT SOME
1 throttle servo ........GOT IT
1 align 2 in 1 ..........STILL NEED ONE
1 tail servo.. futaba or align ............GOT ONE
fuel line ............NEED SOME
align fuel filter with T fitting .............ON ORDER
i have 2 booms, but they have glue on them from the rod holders so i would like a new.....but i can do without it
1 supertigre g 34 h piston ring....( i think i found one.
some velcro and battery straps,
i have a vintage futaba radio, that matches the ERA...so i will use that..
I tore it down tonight. and wow someone must have used red loctite, caz i cant get some of the frame apart....so i will have to deal with that getting parts back in.....
and maybe some other things i have not found yet.....But the objective is to set up and fly against my raptor 30...a 1 on 1 review.....Oh P.S. if you do have any items, remember, IM SO BROKE I CANT PAY ATTENTION!....so bear with me, my progress might be slow, but i will do it...

Who Dares Say Electric!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....Only Kidding.....I guess Iím weird....I went from electric to Nitro.....and someday GAS
So anyways, stayed home today from work to go see doctor, for a week and a half Iíve been feeling allot of pain on the left arm and chest and neck.....so I thought I was having a heart attach , But I went in for a EKG and heart is good.....so doc thinks itís like a tendentious ????? (Thatís why they call it "practicing medicine"http://rc.runryder.com/img/s/wink.gif
So now another pill....."""STERIODS""" donít make me angry!!!
So while I waited at home in pain. I had to do a few things to keep busy
1.....tore down and cleaned the tt36, the guy said he put it in just before he crashed....looked really good carb a little stiff, but i think she is ok.....i just dry fitted her.....i think im going to need a cluch liner....$$$$$
2. I had to rebuild my head, just to check everything....( please to all builders.....DO NOT USE RED LOCKTITE!!!!, I was snapping nuts and bolts off of everything airframe and head....WOW is was ready to throw this thing away.....but itís still here....http://i432.photobucket.com/albums/qq46/cruzroy/HPIM2022.jpg
3. I had to rebuild the fuel tank, once I took the plug out, the brass tube where all chewed up....so luckily I have a test tank and some new line....so I rebuilt it..http://i432.photobucket.com/albums/qq46/cruzroy/HPIM2018.jpg
4. I donít know if this is a good idea, but the 2 booms I got where scratched and dinged and the color was off, so I sanded, puttied, painted and clear coated the best one....But I had to scrape it off were the tail goes on.....added to the thickness..But the color is a match...I really need touch p on all the parts.....but that would take foreverhttp://i432.photobucket.com/albums/qq46/cruzroy/HPIM2020.jpg
5. well took 6 pills......now i got to relax......Just Getting OLD
waiting for some used parts, and i will keep you updated,
thanks for all the help......

Iíve been sorting and cleaning and searching for parts......and all is well, and I wanted to keep the vintage look...with a kick, I got an old futaba radio, that Iím going to convert to 2.4 technology, I donít have allot of cash, so I buy them crashed and hunt and search for parts thought it was going to be tough, bring a quick, but it wasnít, at quickworldwide they do have all the parts, but the whole idea like the basket case raptor i got, was to see if i could dig scratch and crawl, and trade...to find parts, but i did have to buy a few items, which was no different than the raptor v1, most parts for that bird a scarce!!!and it cost $$$$ to convert to a v2, but the Quick 30 will be as it was, I donít have a canopy yet, and there are still some parts left to find....but all in all it has not been bad....the only bad thing was getting the tail all set, and the pulley side rail snapped off, so I had to take it apart and do it over,(but you have to realize, I have 2 crashed units, and Iím trying to build one good one, and the difference between the quick and the Raptor, is for the same cost, the quick is all CNC and Carbon Fiber, the Raptor was all plastic,...I trying to use the servos and electrics form the timeline of the bird....not top end, but affordable and flyable, I just want to say, that Iím am a 1 year veteran ,flying and building heli, and Iím am not a pro from no means, and Iím the type that donít like instructions, Iím kind of mechanical, I use them very limited, and thatís the point to see if this can be done by a noob..And this will be a fair review between the Raptor and the Quick 30, the 1 thing i notice is head design is more mechanical with the Quick ??? is it overwhelming ?? ? we will see, sorry for the time line......itís a cost issue with me, so bear with me, my raptor took most of the winter, but Iíll tell you the Quick is going well, and here are the pictures of her up to date..
