4) The Raptor E620 is one of the better AP vehicle in my humble opinion.
5) You can get a lot of upgrades for the Raptor E550 or the E620 or the 50 V2 or the 50 SE or the 50 Titan SE. They are all basically the same helicopter with minor differences.
6) PhotoshipOne has a custom made 2XPT front camera mount designed specifically for the Raptor E620 to use as an AP ship.

The only disadvantage I can see right now is that the E620 has been discontinued by Thunder Tiger. However the plus side is that they will have parts available for 5 more years. In the meantime anyone can build an E550 or 620 by getting a Raptor 50 titan SE and buying $100 worth of E620 parts to convert it to electric.

I am sold. I loved the Raptor since they came out with the 30 size heli. Three Raptors later I am still in love with them.

Edit:

I forgot to mentioned that I have built and flown just about all the major brands of RC helicopter since 1986.
+1 For the E-620.

Would you say that it would be even better stretched to 710 or larger for APV/FPV purposes?

What motor / ESC / batteries do you currently use?


Using two recently released 5.6A 5S (Flightpower) in series will give more time in the air..

Happy flying
