In response to Don B
Both machines are very good helis. Look at what Alan Szabo does with his machines. There is no question they work. I like the Freya over the Raptor because I wanted a belt drive tail. It's that simple. Both machines will serve you well, both have good parts support and both have their own little unique problems for you to solve/put up with.
The Freya has a number of gear ratios to choose from, the stock Freya needs a few upgrades to make it 99% reliable but they are fairly light on the wallet. The Raptor is not immune from needing a few upgrades too, that is why there is an SE. The Freya has the X-Spec as well.
