RAPTOR Kit with Round Flange



RAPTOR Kit with Contoured Flange



Note: I am charging a premium for the Round flange option and reducing the price on the contoured flange option because I am almost out of the round flange mounting caps. The upside to the contoured option is that two of these Contoured RAPTORS will easily fit inside a 3" airframe! There is no down-side to this option!
