After bending my aluminum side frames due to a radio glitch upon landing, I decided to carbonate my little black Raven. Also you always need a copilot!!!!!!!!!!


who the hell typed hawkflier instead of hawkflyer? Must have been that red headed stepchild of mine

Will it do.......

,

I just bought one Falcon-50 V-2 from a good friend on its way and I am wondering if that set up(carbon frames & railings)is compatable for the Falcon V-2.

I don't know why the century line of heli's made a whole in one for the side frame and the side railing.....that really sucks in an event of a hard crash,I would agree more if its a plastic side frame & railing as a whole than the aluminum.

Thanks,
John

Looks Good

Hawkflyer,

Shure looks good! Have a question, did you happen to weigh the heli before and after?

Thanks,

no but I can tell that it is significantly lighter.

I fact its so much lighter in the front end that I may have to add some nose weight to straighten it out ( kinda defeats the purpose)

CF frame upgrade is for ALL Century 30 & 50s. I had it on my Raven 50 and it is lighter. The tend to survive crashes a tad better too. But, the coolest thing about it to me is the aluminum CNC frame rails. They make the lower frames VERY stiff and you will never see them crack on the bend like the metal ones can.

Also, you can move the landing gear forward at the front because they have two strut mounting locations pre-drilled in the rails. And, one more thing.......the lower muffler bolt can be removed because they have a "U" shaped cutout in the frame rail on that side. All in all the CF frames are actually a nice feature. They dont' make the heli fly any better but they look nice and have some nice little changes that makes working on these 30/50s easier.

Thanks for the reply..........makes alot of sense with those side railings in an event of a hard crash and also the stiffness it will provide.

Thinking of getting.......... ........

Also the front radio tray is longer on the carbon frame kit, with some nice cut outs for securing you flight gear. On the Raven's you can also mount your header tank up in the radio tray opposite the throttle servo; it is conviently the correct level for the carby - the down side is you can't see it.

The frames were designed over here in the UK and then supplied to Century in the states, other good features are a hole in the rear of the frames for your remote glow adaptor and one in front of the tank to pass the tubing through to the the exhuast, but keeping it away from the gear train. Also there is a mounting plate for the switch and Futaba charging socket adaptor on both of the front frames.
