Raptor 60 V2 Manual

Thunder Tiger/Taya "Raptor 60" helicopter.  Mr. Taya, the first F3C Helicopter World Champion, designed this helicopter to be the highest quality model helicopter in the RC hobby industry. The Raptor 60 is designed for modelers who love building and flying model helicopters. Only the highest quality materials are used. With the Raptor, the pilot can really appreciate the pleasure of flying in 3-dimensional space. Its docile handling is ideally suited for beginners. The stable hover and agility also make it the top choice for contest fliers and extreme 3-D pilots. The Raptor requires the least amount of assembly of any helicopter kit. The ARF version comes complete with a high performance Thunder Tiger Pro 70H ring engine and muffler. The helicopter and engine are both manufactured by Thunder Tiger using the most modern technology and exceed the stringent internationally recognized ISO-9001 manufacturing standard.
Unique Side frame System
Aluminum side plates are used in conjunction with moulded material to construct the main structure. This design produces a
minimum weight with maximum strength. If the side frames were completely made of moulded material, then to achieve equal
strength the plastic would have to be very thick and heavy. Using moulded material at the right place avoids using metal angle
brackets or putting compound bends in metal frame frames. Slots have been added in the frame design to permit using optional gear ratios to optimize engine performance to suit any pilot's demand.
Bell-Hiller Mixing Control Unit
Main rotor control geometry has been carefully engineered to minimize cross-coupling in commands. Blade pitch arms and the
Bell-Hiller mixing arms are designed at an angle such that the pushrod interlinking them are at 90 degrees when the blades are
at 0 degree. The pilots will get the symmetrical cyclic control feel and flybar authority either at +10 or -10 degrees of collective.
Shaft Drive Tail Rotor The Raptor 60 is designed with a constant drive tail rotor system to permit full tail rotor control during autorotations. Backward
autos, pirouette autos and 180 autos are all within your reach now. It has the same aluminum torque tube system as the Thunder Tiger/Taya Imperio helicopter. This allows obtaining the maximum performance from any modern high gain gyros.
