I recently aquired a century 60 Huey.

It was without the LG and the manual/plans.

No biggie. I have my LHS ring up Century and get them on their way.

Parts came in today.

The scale landing gear looks strikeingly similar to the predator gasser gear I got with my P-Gas kit. They said they were the last ones. I hope not. P-Gassers look funny sitting on the pull starter. They are hard to land that way, too.

Like I mentioned, I ordered the manual and plans, too. For $15 I got a set of photocopied instructions but no plans. We ring up century and they say they no longer ship the plans just the manual. They thought it was interesting that someone ordered the plans when they were on the Internet.

Yes, they are on the Internet, but I was willing to pay money for the plans so I could build a profile heli to test my mechanics with.

So does anyone have any suggestions on where to get some scale gear for a century scale Huey?

How about the plans?

Anyone need a set of P-Gas gear? I have an extra set.

Have you try vario? I think their Huey gear looks great. There are a few guys at scalercheli making scale landing skids including copter doctor (Emile).

I looked at the Vario gear, and it looks good.

I almost hit buy now on it, but I am not sure if it is the correct size for the fuse I have.

I think all of my needs roll back around to the scale plans I do not have.

If you could scan it or photocopy the plans it would help me out a lot.

PM me how much you would like for your time and I can get you my info.

Not in a big hurry. Just would like to know I had my bases covered.

Thanks!

Pull start on gassers
rcadd1ct Couple of possibilities use a topstart for your gaser does away with the pullstart, or as the X-cell Spectra G a detachable one, I have one of these and went for the topstart, works great

I use the top start on my p-gas. I was just commenting on century only having one set left. Nobody else gets LG for their predators....I got the last one.

I am going to electrify a Raven and fly that in the fuse.

Since I need to experiment with cutting down the mechanics, pinion gears, batteries and a vario scale head, I would like to build it as a profile heli to work all the bugs out of it.

Rotorsport:

Would it be possible to run it by Kinkos or something for them to scan it or photocopy it full size. Like I said, I would be willing to send some money your way to help pay for your time.

Thanks All!!!!

I know you found gear but I had the same problem on my Century Huey so I made some out of steel brake line. You have to have acess to a welder but they turned out great and were very strong. I bent the back part of them up too much but that would be an easy fix if I built another set. Pics in my gallery

I used an xcell gasser in mine and you are right the muffler is tight. I ended up making a muffler that turned out to work pretty good with a Miniature Aircraft header.

Another Century Huey
I purchased a new Huey fuse from Heli-World =Century 8 weeks ago.
No plans only some very poor photocopied instructions.
And the kit was missing the "cheek" lower wind shields.
Called them, was promissed someone would call back....Not!!
Called again, was told I was lier: That they had checked my box prior to shipping nothing was missing they said . End of discussion.
Strange since the box and inside boxes had original factory paper tape
It was NOT cut open and taped back.
The fuse is smaller than their dimensions ( missing 3/4" here & there)
and VERY thin & flimsy. Have to build it up from the inside with epoxy & cloth. Did anybody get one that had some thickness to it?
Do not mention the name Century to me, I will buy my stuff elsewere in the future.:
Could use a copy of the plans also, will pay
Regards,
Anders
