Absolutely! I am finnishing my 3D 90, but a shipping error on a gyro prevents me from flying much with it this weekend, so it will likely be a photo session, with the 2 rappys cause I need to add some pics to my album. Check out my sig.

2 90's is all one needs. (and a few cases of fuel). I have no experience with the carbsmart, sorry there. I'll get pics of the "brothers" next week and get them posted. Began trimming out the new rappy last nite, tracking/trims. The YS has a bit more power, should be fun! will keep in touch.

I would keep one of each. I absolutely love beating the 50 after flying a 90 all afternoon.

Raptor 90 is a good, solid machine.

I think it will be around for a while.

I love the 90's but it is more relaxing to fly and practice on the 50. for me it works well to have a cheaper to fix practice bird to learn new maneuvers on.
