A & J Hobbies, National Hobby, Pinnacle Hobby all carry Raptor spares. If
none of 'em have what you need you can order just about anything from
www.ecmc.com or through A & J Hobbies (ask for Arden) with a 1 week turn
A & J currently has the 29BB kit in stock for $349. The 49BB comes with the
engine - I ditched the TT36 after endless fiddling for an OS 32 SX-H for
most of this season, but may try the TT36 again this weekend with an OS 6B
If you don't mind building the 29BB kit, the 49BB upgrade and an OS 32 SX-H
would be the way to go. If you decide to get the 49BB ARF you'll probably
have to replace the engine or at least the carb unless you are very lucky.
Where do you fly? I fly at both the Ajax Club (Hwy7 & Brock) and the Toronto
RC Heli Club (Mississagua).
