Default Thunder Tiger Raptor E550S - Review

Thunder Tiger have a number of ARF helis available, including the electric E550S. Running on 6 cell lipos, the E550S has a lots of power, and is 3D capable in it's stock form; and with an optional flybarless conversion kit available this heli will keep even the most advanced pilots happy!


I recently had the opportunity to review the latest ARF version of the Raptor 50S. It's a great helicopter, but there is one thing that may have turned die hard electric fans off; the fact that it is a nitro helicopter. Well, Thunder Tiger hasn't forgotten the electric fliers, and they introduced the new Raptor E550S, which is also a 90% assembled ARF. The head and the tail are the same as it's nitro brother, but that is where the similarity ends. Running off of a 6S lipo pack, with a powerful 1150kV Ace RC Ripper motor, and swinging carbon fiber main blades, the E550S does not disappoint in performance.

The Raptor E550S comes 90% assembled, with just final assembly of the boom and servos required. If you own a 700 sized machine (such as teh Raptor G4), you can use the same battery packs in the E550S, those being 6S 5000mah packs. Also, there is a flybarless conversion kit availalble which I will take a look at in this review.
