Depends on the type of RAID which was set up, in part.

What type of RAID?

Overview of RAID, MS.

Based on what I read, I would say that your only chance of recovering data from a drive used in either a RAID3 or RAID4 configuration...would be to employ a similar RAID setup.

RAID 3, RAID 4 employs 3 (or more) disks, right? Are you trying to recover data from the disk that were striped or the disk set up for redundancy? Hamluis is right though - your best shot is to recreate the RAID array and then try to recover data. I've used GetDataBack with success many times - though it isn't free, it will let you test recover and even view your data without having to buy it.
