This is my flying model recreation of the 1966 BatCopter as seen in the classic T.V series of the 60's. This is a Century Bell 47G ARF kit slightly bashed with the sideframe/muffler kit and a falcon eCCPM kit added. The BatCopter will eventually get a full cockpit which is why the eCCPM kit was added. Powered by a Thunder Tiger .50, the BatCopter is controlled by Hitec Servos and Receiver with a Futaba GY401/9253 combo managing the tail. The BatWings are constructed out of Carbon Fiber and brass rods with Kevlar thread and CA as a joint binder. The wings were designed to be strong enough to used in flight although this has yet to be tested. -- Alan

Also the guys at the field today loved them, I pointed them your way :) Sorry the picture is not top quality but you can still see how well it looks.
Thanks!, Gregg"

Davis S., Owner of this hansome and patriotic classic V1 Raptor writes: "Hi! The graphics were much easier to apply than I thought they would be! Took me about 2.5 hours total to apply them. I'm very pleased with the new look! Thanks for a great product!!"

Alex V, builder of the super visible Hawk Sport writes: "I like it the way it came out. Thanks for everything."

Mike, owner of this cool Hawk Sport in North Carolina writes: "Hi Alan, I received my decals yesterday, and didn't waste any time putting them on. I put them on early this morning, and am very pleased with the results. I even ordered two sets for my new Raptor 30 v2. ( I'm buying an extra canopy, so I can change looks, occasionally). Thanks, Mike"

Fred W. writes: "Alan, Thanks for the replacement (yellow) graphics! Here are some pictures of the heli, looks great - no comparison with the stock sticker. Thanks again! "

Jim B. back in Swansea, IL did some cool experimentation here!

"Hey Alan, recieved my stickers today and applied them to my raptor 30 v2. Really looks good. I wish you had some for my Ergo 60!"

Mike C. of Cape Coral, Florida shot us this pic of his cosmetically upgraded V1 and says:
"Thanks a bunch, Alan. I just got done with the main stickers for my V1 with a V2 canopy. I didn't think of that when ordering so I needed to do some chopping to put the V2 tail sticker on my V1 tail. Otherwise I'm very happy. I loved the stickers and the colors are fantastic. Here is the right and left side before the final touches have been added. Thanks again."

Here's a montage of three picz that Erich F. of Oldsmar, Florida sent in of his Raptor 60 dressed out in the new Starz-N-Stripez in METAL FLAKE vinyl. Erich adds:
"Hey Alan, Just installed my Stars-N-Stripez Ultra Deluxe set, and it came out great. Pics are attached. I used the dry application method for the red, and wet for the blue. Both came out great, and none of the material tore, even around the stars. I used soapy water sprayed onto the canopy rather than alcohol on the graphics, with great results.

John M. of Las Vegas sent in a pick of his wildly visible Freya along with a note:
"I just got the graphics done and shot a few pics. Thought you would like to see how well it turned out. I had a chance to fly it this afternoon and you sure can see it in the air with the BRIGHT pink and green."

Chris S. of Milford, CT. sent in this amazing photo of his R30-V2 and R60 ship along with this note:

"I recently received an order for 2 rotorgraphics sets, a carbon/florescent orange R30 V2 and a carbon/electric blue R60. All arrived as promised. I put them on yesterday and was very pleased. The carbon fiber looks fantastic. The pics on your site donít do it justice. I like the orange. It is very visible and looks nice. The blue R60 is what I expected it to be, but I like the look of the florescent orange better. So much so I want the R60 to match."
And Chris did buy a replacement bottom set for the sixty and then he took this picture:

Dave J. of Colchester, U.K. sent in this great pic of his V2. Note the way he used both tail color sets to add style to his heli! Thanks Dave for helping to make RotorGraphics "World Famous"!
