It a part looks like it came from a Shuttle it probably did.

I think Century have a .30-size three-blade tail rotor.

Vario certainly have a three-blade tail rotor, but it's probably too large for a .30.

You could alway say it's an Alouette II instead of a Lama.

I used a Century 3-blade hub on my lama (pics in my gallery). The Century tail hub does not come with a pitch slider, you are suppose to use the one that comes with your heli, however the tail slider that came with the lama would not work. I used an MA (xcell) tail slider and the whole system works great.

Hey wes,
I will take some pics of it tomorrow (thur) and e-mail them to you. As far as the muli blade gyro you are hearing about, it is for a different use than your 501. Your 501 will do great for the the tail (yaw)(I use a 401 with a 9253 works great) the muti blad gyro is it to help steady the muti blade head in flight (Roll and Pitch axis). I know there are many people who love and stand by them, I don't use one. Yes, I admit the muti blade head flys different than the two bladed fly-bar head, but its really not any thing you can't get use to in a few tanks. The 3-blade head is slightly harder to hover, its not quite as stable, but again its not that bad. The 3-bladed head does want to pitch up in forward flight, and in turns you get some ballooning. I enjoy flying it and felt very comfortable within about 3 tanks. You will have to decide if you want to use a multi head gyro or not, its all about what you are comfortable with.
