I just finished teaking my new CP Hummer. It definitely needs work before it runs smoothly. I took the head apart and dressed up the slots that the flybar pivot moves up and down in. I squeezed all the ball links and balanced the blades, flybar and tail. I dynamically balanced the head, flybar and paddles without the blades by trial and error; moving the flybar back and forth until I had the smoothest spin.

My setup is:
Astro 010 10 turn - 8 tooth pinion
3s 1200 E-tec Lipos
gy240
Hitec Electron receiver
3 HS55 servos
CC Micro 10 ESC
GWS ESC for tail

I am not into 3D yet but I can definitly cruise around at a pretty high rate of speed with this baby. I will try a loop when my spares get here.
There is not much negative pitch with the stock mainshaft collar. I am going to see if the one from my Picolo will fit so the swash will go a little lower.

All in all, not bad for $100. All of the gear came out of my Piccolo Pro. I got tired of the parts prices for that one. You guys seen the prices for the CP parts on the Century site? They look good to me!

Thanks for the report! As you fly it some more let us know how it’s doing. Are you planning on adding a direct drive tail?

I only weighs 335 grams. If it's windy, I'm flying my Logo 10!

I think a DD tail is in order, using one of those GWS motors. I would like to see how long this motor lasts though.
