2014 Thunder Tiger Raptor E550FBL ARF : From Buying to Flying
This page is where I am tracking all of my videos and random content associated with my new Thunder Tiger Raptor E550 FBL ARF (Almost Ready to Fly) helicopter from Hobbico. I titled this as “From Buying to Flying” because I am literally documenting everything from purchase to maiden flight. This will hopefully be a great reference for folks interested in buying the E550FBL or those who have bought it and may need some help getting started. As with all heli manuals, they are enough to get an experienced builder going, but tend to be lacking lots of little details that leave the beginner builder scratching there heads. Myself included!
Come back to this page as often as you wish! I’ll be updating it as I go.
Here it is. Enjoy!
