Predator Gassers, whats happened to them?
Checked out Century Helis USA and found that they dont seem to stock the Predator Gassers anymore? last time I looked was a good long while ago and they looked to be stocking the newer Predator NX, along with loads of parts etc...which would support the older versions too.

Checked out the Pred Max 90 (was thinking of getting another turbine Pred) and looks to not be stocked either. What happened? has the recession hit the world of RC Helis hard?

Been out of the game for a while now, so not up on current affairs
Quality takes........time!

My pred max .90 was one of my all-time favs! sorry to see them go! But you can buy a used one for arround 300.00 bucks online here. Done it myself and have seen others for sale for arround that price. Do a search, you find an old ad for one that didn't sell.Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Predators....
Century seems to be focus on their G20 and G30 now....
Though they do have Full Kits and Parts Available ...
On Century's page under parts... They are under Classic helis.
On HWC's page.... They are listed under replacement parts.

I just ordered some CF Upper Plates for a Predy two weeks ago... They are still around.

Century Heli's don't focus on diddle !!!
I went to order a tail output shaft for my G 30 and sure enough
there out of stock said it would 3-4 months !!!
Can't get a cooling fan hub for my Predator either !!!

Century Heli's are not a customer friendly business !!!

...announce they had opened a new factory to fix this very problem
I may be wrong but I don't think they actually own any factories...my guess is they may subcontract out to other shops to make the individual parts for them per thier specs...this must be why you either have good parts or crappy ones...my guess is the heli shops that make 100% of thier parts in house are very rare in this hobby...
showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

the Predator line is now legacy, support only. I'm sure they'll make parts for them for some time

the Radikal/Condor line is current production. They are releasing a full fuse 830 version soon

"fix it"

fix what, I see trooling and I see hijacking, but I don't see a problem, so Century discontinued a heli as MA has many, many, many times, and parts can be out of stock for anything you buy, car, boat, plane, fullsize or RC, I had to wait 3 weeks for a door parts for my Toyota, it happens

Gee Kogi,
You use an unapproved head configuration and it failed. Yet you still blame the company. It's getting really old seeing you blabber on about it every chance you get.

For those who don't know, he used larger blades then recommended on the smaller plastic head AND converted it to flybarless using the plastic grips. Both no-nos.

yes we know that, and Bill told him that he spun up the 720s to high with the plastic grips, but he just can't see it, the proof is with his end-resultJim
