rushed to get my c.p. monday morning and things are not to good in the uk it seems.there are no manuals supplied as yet thry are not in the country.the skids on mine are out of shape seem warped,one vender says they are faulty another vender says all his are like that and century told him thats how they should be to make it sit right.do not know who is right.and now to cap it all i have heard they is a mix up with the electronics,the deal i got was with speedo and seperate gyro but it should be using speedo with built in gyro.
i would really like to know from you guys in the states and the uk the situation wih your kits are the skids warped also,any manuals and are you using seperate century gyro or the combined board.only i am not going to start mine till i know what the score is.thanks.

I received mine yesterday and immediately saw a problem with the skids too....I took some pictures and I will post them later.

Essentially, I had to remove the skids and cf legs...after reinstalling them, it looks OK. I did this after calling Century and found out that I could return the one I had and then they would send another...or order another and wait for a refund once they received the one I sent back.

One end of one of the skids was not inserted all of the way into the frame...and made them a little lop-sided. It was a tight fit and I had to take it apart and reassemble it in order to get it to fit properly.

I went into a model shop to-day and there was a CP hummingbird on the counter. First off the skids looked the same as on my Hummingbird V2 carbon struts and plastic skids i didnt notice any distortion. The model shop owner told me he has been told by century not to sell any CP's yet because there are no instructions and the electronics were wrong. The one in the shop had separate RX and gyro. I think who ever you bought your CP Hummingbird from has jumped the gun. Make him get hold of Century to verify

i was told that using the speedo/mixerboard with seperate gyro does not work right with tail.it needs to be speedo with built in gyro to be controlable,and this has only just been found out.no one seems to know for sure.very bad situation for people to be in.i was lucky i heard some roumers and did not do anything to mine yet i will have to wait a few days some one should know by then.
has any one got theres flying yet and if so what elecs do you have in it and any probs seen.

instructions are ok until you get to pitch curves. Then experience kicks in!

The separate mixer & gyro combo doesn't give enough power through the BEC circuit to power three servos. Disconnect the motors and circle the sticks a few times and things start to slow down alarmingly... Wait for the all in one unit!
