Like I said in my PM's Hoverup, looking forward to reading your findings. The bell/hiller mixing on the flybar yolk is a real neat bit of work isn't it. Someone put a lot of thought in there to get the parts count down and keep it 'crash resistant'.

Hey All,
I also received my CP HB today and must agree with Boyd, It looks like a real tight kit. Being one of the first to receive the original HB's March 17th 2003 I must say that 1Year+ later and I'm very impressed. It looks like Century realizes the enormous market in these Micros. Hell I'd say that the HB has swept the market in so many areas, If you doubt me just look at the number of posts on this board vs. ANY other e-heli. Pretty damn impressive. The attention to detail and Customer request is very evident in the Elite CP, much better insrtuctions, actual useful tips, and most of the "hot" after-market mods are already available from century. eg. CNC head w/ button, full semi blades, auto rotation main gear, brushless motor and controller.

Some of the little things on this Stock out of the Box that I liked are,

Prediator Sytle Canopy (I may actually fly it like this )
Ball in swash Mod
Metal main shaft colar
Adjustable ball links
easy to remove main gear
flipped tail motor (prop wash to add coolin, even though I'll be trying
may latest shaft driven DF assembly - keeps the tail motor in the cabin area and will make for a more realistic scale heli)

NICE JOB Dennis !!!!

I'll keep everyone posted as I'm sure Boyd will also!!
I hope Century is prepared to sell a ton of these Puppies!

Regards,
Ant

You the 2 lucky guys that just received their new toy. Do you know if there are parts from the regular V2 that would be compatible with the new Elite. Because may be I can use my brand new HB V2 for spares for an eventually new Elite.

Thanks,
Clovis

Not really, except for the undercarriage, landing gear and boom. It's really an all new design. Don't dispare, at $100 for the CP Kit it is one of the most affordable purchases to make! Hell the cost of the Kit wouldn't cover a minor crash on a 60 size nitro. Let's face it almost all hobbies are expensive, however with the falling prices of electronics, in general, you can have a great little "bird" at a very reasonable price.

I own a Video Production Company, and if you want to talk about fast changing technology then pull up a chair.......I bought one of the first DVD Burners 3 years ago and it cost me $1000. It was a slow 2X burner. Today I bought (6) 8X Pioneer A07 Burners for $125 ea. And Don't even get me started on cameras or computers. My Point is this.....This is a hobby guys, it's ment to be fun and relaxing!! Try not to get hung up on the "jings" it takes to relax afterall isn't that what we work for.

Food for thought!
Regards,
Anthony

HB Elite FP-

How does it compare to the CP? Is it basically the same chopper with a fixed pitch rotor head? It's only 14 bones more than a V2, Do you guys think that it would make a good first chopper with an airplane radio?

Don't have my CP HB yet, but for the gyro mounting, you can put it on the front or back or side or wherever it will fit. As long as you get the top and bottom right, you can rotate it around the vertical axis to any orientation that fits. The important thing is to isolate it from heat, vibration, and magnetic and electrical interference, so best to keep it away from the motor.
