Well...I logged in exclusively for this "announcement".

Maybe next week as I've been too busy flying and or tinkering with my gasser lately. Recently added a couple of toggle switches for Rx and Ei.

looks like the Radikal 640 is Centuries new flag ship !

in some ways similar to the Whiplash, in that has 3 power platforms to choose from.

tail pitch slider....
highly noticed.

Can it be used on the G20? Century?

I really would like to keep my bird all centurian.

Anyone else using G30 high profile landing gear on their G20? Try it, you will like it specially if using a pull starter.

Nice but, one of the reasons the whiplash is making noise on the market is its low parts count, no bell cranks, direct servo to swash, light and very very easy to work on...oh and its MA Quality

Century needs to go back to direct servo to swash like on the older ravens, servo weight around the main shaft. All the new machines are utilizing direct ccpm, which saves on parts count, weight and set up time! IMO In today's market it is very important, especially if your into 3D flying where crashes happen more often.

If century designs a new .90 or Heli in the future, I sure hope they implement direct servo to swash and go as low parts count and weight as possible with out sacrificing quality and strength. When this happens, I might be interested to dive back into century helicopters.

All my machines I fly now are direct servo to swash and I will not go back to bell cranks for reasons already mentioned. Lots of pilots think and feel the same about bell cranks

Nice new 640 just not for me The price is great!!! IMO
The one thing century does very well is bring good machines to market with great price points!!! The main reason century machine were my training helicopters when I first started out in this wonderful hobby. If only more shops carried the century line

Cheers,
Raven

To each his own I guess. Loved my raven but hated replacing servo gears all the time. Ill take some bell cranks in between myself and take the weight penalty.

Hopefully Century will have a way to make it optional ?!
their kits are already interchangeable

useing a 55 to swing 640 blades might be underpowered so I hope they make a mount for a 90 engine

I want the options !!!
