My Original Thunder Tiger Raptor 30 Nitro

Found these old photos of the first Raptor 30 I flew circa 2003. Back when we could get 20 minutes of flight on one tank…remember those days? Yes, those are real wooden blades….an OS .30 engine, a remote glow plug attachment, a gigantic gyro and full mechanical linkages/mixing, oh and don’t forget the milk carton plastic canopy that you couldn’t paint…. Totally old school but oddly, you’ll notice that many of TT’s designs are still in use today like the belt drive and general head design (for flybars). Enjoy.
