Noticed the Heli-Max Kinetic 50 ARF looks much like the Raven.

The gear ratio is different and I think it's heavier at 7.5lbs, but definitely a century copy.

Must be made by Century for Helimax in an OEM agreement...

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

Hope it is an OEM thing. Found it funny that I see that bird just before I read the thread about parts and Century not liking after market parts in the predator threads

I read the add, and although it did say 50, it never said eCCPM. Looks like a 50 sized version of the Hawk to me from the picture.

Steve H,
The Kinetic is CCPM. That is from the dealer notes and such from GP. I think I may get one when they come out. Just for fun. I can compare it to the Audacity Tiger, Century Raven, and JR Airskipper. I think I will try one of the new Evolution 52's in it. It makes sense as I am flying a JR heli with a OS engine. I might as well fly a GP heli with a Horizon engine. I will still run Hitec servo's as they have been working great in both my Airskipper and my PMax. I am waiting for the December release date from HeliMax.

Perry,

It may be CCPM, but again, it does not say so in the add...just went and read it again.

The Kinetic 50 is NOT ccpm. It looks identical to my Hawk Sport. I checked it out pretty close at iHobby last week. It's just a 50 size Hawk.

Sorry,
I just looked at the GP dealer site. I retract my earlier statement. I have been looking at so many heli's recently that are coming out that I got the wrong heli. It would be nice if it was CCPM. I guess we will just have to waite and see.

Dollor for dollar, the Raven 50 looks like it would be a better deal. I do like the larger fuel tank though!

That is true Wasp, but the first Falcons weren't SE's.

Mikel,

You are right...the first Falcon's weren't SE's. However, now days the only Falcon that is available is the SE (V2), that has the same upgrades as the Raven.

Looking at the brocures that Midstar40 has posted, it does look just like a Hawk Pro, with a few upgrades like the dual ball bearing tail, and the 50 engine necessities.

About the CCPM, it would be easy to add the bellcrank eCCPM conversion that I, Jackheli, and some others have done. All you would need is a swashplate, and to fabricate the side plates.

Steve,
If it is a knock off of a hawk pro, could you not just get the CCPM upgrade from century and use it?
