Hi,

I posted this on the Century forum, but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of traffic there so I figured I would try here and see if anyone might know.

I noticed today that the Predator NX V2 gasser has been moved from Century's current line of helis to their classic line. Does this mean the Predator has been retired? I hope we can still get parts. I have only had mine for two years.

Thanks,

Tom

Tom, I believe
Century is only pushing Radikals now, the Predator line has been on the back burner for a while with parts being scarce for quite some time now from what I read others posting.

The radikal is lighter and a more simple machine than the Predator. Much better and newer design.

Thanks for the reply Raja.

I really do hope they continue selling parts even though they have discontinued it. I know Minair has continued supporting their older helis, I hope Century will do the same.

Hi Tom,

I have been flying the Predators for years; I have two converted two to electric and one nitro. I still love them and they fly great.

I have not had any problems getting parts.

Thanks salesmanheliboy, that's good to know.

Since you have several Predators can I ask you what you would use for the replacement fuel stopper on yours? I need a gas version and HelicopterWorld only sells the fuel tank sets. I am guessing Dubro makes an equivalent but I'm not sure what one.

Thanks again,

Tom

There are no issues with parts for the Predator gassers at all.I just got a bunch in for a fellow and everything was in stock.There are still kits avalible but they are not making any more so they go off the main page.Parts will be around for along time I am sure.And as mentioned the Dubro 400 gas stopper works fine as does the Sullivan 484 gas conversion kit.
