I am trying to work a deal on a Century Raven package locally, and am wondering about parts availability? I don't see Ravens even listed that much for parts (all the Century site lists are crash kits for the Raven). Ronlund shows some parts, they are listed in the same category as the Hawk. Is there some shared parts with the Hawk? Before I go down the road with the Raven I just want to make sure parts are still out there otherwise I will forget it - thanks.

These guys seem to carry a lot of the Century parts

So it does look like there is a lot of the same parts in common between the Hawk pro, Raven 50, and the Radikal<?>... just thought I try and confirm this with others...

Nearly all are the same, check heli-world. they carry both the hawk and raven parts. Basically, you will find the only differences are the engine mount, blade size, tail boom size. With the updated main blade grips even the head is interchangeable.

More accurately, most or all of the raven parts would fit on a hawk. The head has some differences, fly bar cage, head block, feathering shaft are all different. Of course the boom but also the skids, tail rotor hub, tail blade grips are all different. That said any of both heli parts will "fit " the other but may not work with the the "other size" heli parts....

In other words, for instance; The fly bar cage for either will fit either but the hawk flybar cage parts wont work with Raven flybar cage parts....

if a Manual doesn't come with this Raven you can download one (or check for part number) in the link

be careful with some Part Numbers because some Part Numbers may be the same yet have a different letter at the end
