Description

4732-A13 - Thunder Tiger E550 Flybarless ARF 3D RC Helicopter

*Please allow one extra day for delivery of this item


This is the Thunder Tiger Raptor E550 Flybarless Almost Ready to Fly Helicopter Kit. By combining the premium features and accessories of the X50 and E55S machines, the flybarless Raptor E550 FBL outdoes every other comparable heli for performance and value. The ARF platform allows you to get it flight-ready fast - 95% of assembly has been done at the factory! Even the ESC and flybarless system are programmed right out of the box. Simply add your Futaba (w/SBus) or Spektrum (w/Satellite) radio system and a 6S 5000mAh battery.

The simplicity makes the E550 a great machine for first-time heli pilots, and veteran acrobats will find themselves reaching for the Raptor E550 when they want some high-performance fun.


Video Overview

Features:

  • 550 Carbon Blades: With 550 carbon blades the E550 is incredibly responsive during aerobatic 3D flight. Backwards and inverted, flips and rolls, active pirouette. The ability to perform these extreme maneuvers make the E550 a great machine 3D pilots.
  • Castle Creations Talon 90: Castle Creations electronics have a reputation for quality and dependability — making the Talon 90A ESC a welcome feature. It also features a robust 9A continuous, 20A peak BEC to supply power to the radio system.
  • Ideal first heli — suitable for hardcore 3D! Learn the ropes with a mid-sized, aggressively priced, high performance electric model. The Raptor E550, though known as a “training” heli, has quickly become a mainstay for pilots of all skill levels.
  • 1150kV Ace R/C Ripper Brushless Motor: The 1150kV Ripper supplies ample power to fly with confidence, whether you're learning how to hover or tackling aggressive 3D maneuvers.
  • Precise 140-degree ECCPM Control System: The performance of the installed Ace R/C GT5.2 flybarless system is second to none — and because the programming has already been done, you're that much closer to your first Raptor E550 flight.
  • Rock Solid Tail
    • Lightweight tail boom support bracket
    • 85mm tail blades
    • Easy to install tail rod guides
    • Reinforced support bracket
    • Metal tail boom clamp

    • Ace R/C DS1510MG digital cyclic servos

  • Engineered for outstanding performance:
    • 90% factory-built, with tools included for fast final assembly
