It's a nice Heli. You might find it cheaper from a Taiwan store (Try Infinity Hobbies, they have always been very good).

One essential mod- Repace the blue Flap-dampers supplied with the black ones that are standard on the Raptor 30- The blue one are too soft and the 'Copter has a harmonic vibration with them unless you run a VERY high hear-speed, which in turn drains your battery duration.

Apart from that it flys well in the stock configuration.

The only mod I would do is PVO499 SUS Tail Hub, Safety Issue. The standard ones have a blow-out problem.
PVO356, 60* Black Damper (softest)
PVO381, 70* Blue Damper
PVO382, 80* Red Damper (hardest)
