Am considering a Raptor 50 Heli. I see there are several models offered.
1. TTR4851-K10 which is the Raptor 50 Version 2

2. TTR4852-K10 which is the Raptor 50 SE edition.

Could anyone elighten me as to what are some of the differences between the two.

What are the differences??
Does the 50SE have same bearing count as the V2( 49BB )
Are the side frames, fuel tank, etc, the same as what is on the V2?
Is the 50SE a beefed up version of the 50V2, by that I mean metal swashplate, head, etc.....And I believe the 50SE has CF main rotor blades as well?????
I did visit the Ace/Thunder Tiger website , but not all info could be found there>

Well i disagree with many of those "features" most are just marketing as the v2 has a tonne of them already and some like the paddles are subjective anyways (most people seem to go to Minair paddles or TT green 20gr ones for 3D).

50se features worth note:
Metal button rotor hub -- nice
Metal washout base -- nice longevity feature
Carbon vertical and horizontal fins

other "features":
25g 3D paddles -- personal preference really so not a "feature" unless these are your preferance
Stainless flybar rod -- guaranteed to break this every crash so not really a feature though this one is silver and the V2's are black
New decal -- this has "feature" written all over it
Sim-carbon canopy -- different coloured plastic feature

These are all stock on the V2:
Metal swashplate
Carbon base plate
High performance muffler
Header tank
Wood blade

Now take into account that a V2 comes with a very nice pair of Carbon blades (as well as the paint stirrers) and add up all the upgrades you will actually use (unless you are already flying heli's you won't notice things like the metal hub or washout for a while and even less so with the carbon tails (though they help in backwards and for tight flips) and you've made your discission

In Canada at Great Hobbies the 50SE comes with TT carbon blades.
The head block is metal and has a teetering bearing for the spindle. It is stronger than plastic and won't rock on the mast or split during a crash in cold weather. Note the phase adjusting ring with mast clamp-up. The head button is simply part of the hub and would not be a deciding factor for me. I won't repeat the other features since they are pretty much covered but I will say many people add the extras later.
metal frame spacers are nice too. Lots of stuff hidden from view so research the link below to see the actual mods between the R50 V-II and SE/V-II. Go to bottom of the page.
