yeea, I'm with Shawn here, not a Century 30/50,,

see how the tank is mounted, if it was a Century 30/50 the Tank would be more forward..

yeah, the belly of the canopy was the give away for me that its a raptor, and the pipe is a 90 size MP2 or MP5. the tank is in the right spot for a raptor, and the flybar looks like it may be on the top of the head, but it is hard to tell in that pic.

Without question, it's Alan Szabo Jr and his old Raptor 90.

The part number that you list there (cn4040a) is for the Airwolf 50 fuselage ONLY. Century recommends the 50 sized scale mechanics. When you go to the pod-and-boom section of the website, the obvious pick for a 50 sized helicopter is the Raven. Unless they used the NX (which I doubt) for the combo.

So your question is?

the SE has the fallowing,,

1. 4mm flybar

2. SE Paddles

3. triple bearing tail grips

4. 6mm spindle with thrust bearings

5. metal swash plate

6. constant tail drive

7. metal/plastic head block with phasing ring

9. very nice composite blades

i bought it brand new and it did not come with that stuff and i was very upset the way they sent it to thats anothor story.and i didnt go to ebay for the purchase. i went to the lhs. anyway on the insructions machanics thas it and there not very detailed and there is no upgrades at all. i am a little upset whith century because they sell a sport scale combo but they dont even give up the upgrade for the tail witch i think we should get. becuse look i am not going to chance my heil to a 1.5 mm drive shaft when my heli might reach the est.10 lb model. and also anti rotation and full bearing head that i have to order.

ummmm, sorry you are unhappy, but you did ordered the "basic Scale Mechanics" I'm sure if your not happy Century will let you return it,, if you want upgraded parts then you can buy the parts that you feel will fit your application the best,, I had the wire drive at one time and as many others I didn't have any problems with it, you just have to use plenty of grease..

The mechanics that come in the Scale 50 size fuselages are a special mechanics that are neither Hawk nor Raven. As any scale heli does not turn the rotor heads at the high rotor speeds we turn our 3D machines at and are not continually subjected to the same g-forces our 3D machines are continually subjected to, the scale heli's mechanics can be built with less demanding components - e.g. you may have bushings where there is a bearing in the 3D mechanic and as a wire-in-tube ttail drive is more condusive to varying tail boom lengths and scale demands, it willbe used instead of the torque tube drive of the Hawk Pro or Ravens.

So you will find these scale type mechaniics will use a lot of the same components as found in the older Hawk Sport, some from the Hawk Pro and previous Falcon 50 and the Raven 50.

They work very well in these scale bodies.

I just see it just twsiting and slipping maybe?? i just would like to assure myself that it wont slip. thanks for your help.

That is typical settings for 3D, but not for scale. You will want a lower head speed (e.g. your suggested 1500) for scale flying, in order to sound better and give smoother flight commands.

As your previous settings have obviously had you hovering comfortable at about 5/8 to 3/4 stick, that is where your thumb/brain are comfortable doing so. Consequently it is where you should also try to set your heavier scale heli with a lower head seed to hover.

I would recommend setting for a five point pitch curve of -3/0/3/+6/+11 for pitch....and set the five points on your throttle curve to give you a 1500 or so head speed at all of those same stick positions....or if you use a governor, set it for 1500.

Now you should be able to hover at around the same stick position and climb without bogging at around a 1500 head speed, and the -3 should give you a good and manageable descent rate with the heavier weight.

yes you are correct. i was able to test fly the heli today without the fuse on.
To work out the kinks and and find gremlins. There was only one. The rod for the tail drive let loose.Not a biggie i was able to spot that when i was spooling it up. The 10- 0 10+ and 2000 was way to much and i did mess with that a little. It's now at -3 6 +10 16000 rpm I only hoverd today i was in my backyard. tommrow i will do some forward flight and see how she reacts. i will right those numbers down you gave me and i will try to apply them. and see what happens. thanks
