Yes it is true. I had hoped it would have been out by now. If I don't see it soon I will ask Century where it is

I read from early posts, from the president of century that they were comming out with an "all new CP Hummingbird" and choose not to make a upgrade kit for the current versions.

But hopefully, by popular demand from the people they took the path of making it an upgrade rather than an "all new cp HB".

I know i would'nt want to spend the $$$ on another HB...

That sucks. WIth a cp setup i would need a 6 channel radio right? And, can i safely say that this kit will be alot more money?

Here is part of a message leaved by Peter Chao (Century Heli)

"CP Hummingbird is almost done. A brand new designed Hummer, we choice not to upgrade our V2 version is because we like to bring newest design on market for our customers. Hummer and V2 are designed for easy and relaxed flying, there are some area we can't improved, so we figure a new CP Hummer is what we need.

Century is a multi type RC helicopters mfg. We made much different type RC helis such as Nitro, Scale, Gasoline, and Turbine and just into electric market. Don't worry about price, because we always very careful in pricing try not to upset and insult our customer. A reasonable price always works on both ways I think. (Accept our competitors).

Sounds cool, will that kit require a 6 channel radio?

I have a guess...I bet the CP hummingbird will still be able to use a 4 channel, with the collective part being controlled mechanically somehow, instead of with transmitter mixing. This will fit in with Century's philosophy of value pricing, and will create its own market niche, since it will be different from the competition. Just a crazy guess (because I hope it is true so I dont have to buy an expensive radio )
