Raptor 30/50 v1 assembly

It looks like a lot of things, but it is easy. Start by laying
the right frame half on the table. Insert the top (item 3) and
bottom (item 3) main shaft bearings as well as the top start
shaft bearing (2) and the pinion bearing/clutch bell assembly (16).
Insert all of the white frame spacers (4) and (5) into that side.
Note that as you can see in the picture below, some frame spacers
are short and some long. Next insert the two red pulleys (12)
with pins (7) installed into the slots in the frame. I marked a
hole in the left frame where the pulley can be seen after it's
installed. The pulleys just slide into the slots and the belt
will keep them from coming out. Next join the frames together.
You may have to lay the left frame on top of the right and align
each post to slide in the holes of the left frame. Now it's time
to bolt the frames together. There are 30 of the (1) screws.
Don't tighten them so tight you strip out the plastic, just get
them snug. The plastic will hold them, do not use loctite. Some
use a small drop of CA on the tips of the screws, but I don't
feel it's necessary on any of the ones in this section. I have
never had any of these try to back out. Having said that, don't
assume anything, keep an eye on all bolts and screws. If you find
one of the screws that goes into plastic trying to come out, then
clean it and put a small drop of CA on the tip.
Now that you have the framset together with bearings, pulleys, and clutch bell assembly together, it's time to install the servo tray (8). It is held in with 3 screws on each side.
