Hey Bill,

It is great to see a very experienced Century gasser guru back here again!!!

Also of note is that there was a mention about weight of rotor heads. I think he would also find that the stock head, configured for 3D (removed seesaw etc. as per Zman) is even lighter then his RJX.

I also certainly would question the use of a button head on the end of the feathering spindle to attach the blade grips to it.

Thanx for the pictures Dennis. That looks like one of the cleanest radio gear installations I have seen. Looks good, hope it warms up soon for you. Maybe mother nature is just waiting for Daylight saving time.

Looking good helimanny,
Your going to love that heli. Just make sure you check the weights of the paddles and tail blades to make sure they are the same, I added a little CA glue to the lighter blades and had to drill holes in the ends of the heavy paddle as well as ad glue to the light paddle to get them to balance.
I also had to take out the shims on the feathering shaft. It was too tight and wobbled a bit in spool up.
Make sure you get the tail linkage and rotor to work smoothly too. I had some issues with tail wagging with mine cause I screwed up the bearings in my tail grips.
Now it is pretty smooth.
Today I tried some different blades. So far I like the Radix 710's the best, then the Mavrikk G5 wide cord 710's, and Mavrikk Patriot 690's. I also tried some V-Blade 690's but didn't care as much for them.
I also put some Trex 700 white carbon paddles on it today. I like them as well. But they required quite a bit of balancing too.
I'm also running KBDD tail blades.
I've run around 2.5 gallons through it so far and I sure like this heli.

Great looking Helis!!! Where are you guys purchasing them? And where is the best place to buy parts? I was looking on the Century site and it seems they don't sell direct any more.
I really want to get one. Just not sure on which ver.? Do any of you have the G30 SE Carbon version?

All feed back welcome!!
Thanks
