Century scale mechanics torque tube conversion question
Hello guys! I am starting to put together my Century 3 blade scale mechanics for my Century AS 350 and I bought the torque tube (TT) conversion that was listed on the Century website. It looks pretty straight forward, but I have two TT male ends and one TT coupler. I went through the Hawk Pro manual for a little clarification since it has the TT in it already and at the tail end they list a TT collar, which I do not have. Is it as simple as Century forgot to put in the other TT coupler or am I missing something here, thanks for any advise and if you guys would like to see another assembly thread on this helicopter please let me know and I will post it here. Take care guys, couple of pics for of what I am looking at with the TT conversion.

give them a call at century. the hawk pro i remebered only used one coupler up at the mechanics side. in the t/r gerbox, it was attatched to the shaft via a collar. this may have changed (not sure, beena while since ive built one new. clearly you will need two couplers to finish the conversiondrive a rotary, fly a rotorcraft

Thanks Copter Doctor, that was what I was seeing in the manual also, not sure if it changed. Everything looks like it will work with two couplers instead of one coupler and collar.

I had to place a order anyways and the couplers were in stock, so I ordered one. I will call Century tomorrow and see if they can provide the one that was missing in the kit to have as a extra.

Take care.
