Default Sticky thread for e550/e620 Raptors?

Hi,
I just wonder if it would be nice to have a sticky thread for pictures of e550/e620 Raptors? I've learned much from pictures about how to mount things like electronics, servos, etc on the Mini Titan and from the pictures like in the T-Rex 600 forum, so I guess it would be nice to have that for the bigger e-Raptors too.

Does anyone else think so too?

Would it be better if this thread would be a poll?
Who could create a sticky thread if many heli freaks would like this?

Sven

Yes! There is a thread with several e550/e620 pictures: that would be a good candidate for a sticky.

Default E550 Raptor

My buddy just got done painting the body parts from my Raptor. I had no idea it was going to take that long to do, but am very pleased with the way it looks.

It stands out so much more in the sky now. I went with three tones, Orange for most of the underside, Black for the top, and White for accenting. We also did some racing stripes for some added umph. The Maiden went well yesterday. I got some Vedio to boot, but I still have to upload it.

This is my 1st raptor. An E550 w/ Titan .50 tail boom/belt and 600mm blades. Currently set up for 6S. I was surprised (and very impressed ) with how stable this thing is right out of the box. I was expecting it to be a little squirreley given the fact that I left the weights off the fly bar, and put a set of stubz on it for the first spool up. I am sure you T.T. guys are thinking NO SH**!. I also like the clear windshield, so my hamster can see!, He hardly gets air sick at all with this thing.

Hi, Cool looking Raptor. I like the hamster seat. Hope to start flying mine soon. The snow is melting.

Don't see very many E550s anymore so I thought I would post a few snaps of mine! Its nice and BIG...easy to see. The Canopy decal in "Piper Cub Yellow" helps me with orientation...getting old isn't for sissys.
