don't count Century out yet, sometimes it takes a while to get the boat across the pond, I talk to the reps and they tell me they have new stuff in the works but they don't tell me what , tho I do know they have the OMG 640/30 they have been working on

well that sucks...with a response like that from a sales associate what the heli do they expect the rest of us Century owners to do? do they have a cash for clunkers program?....

Well if they want to concentrate on quads...go figure. mechanically theres nothing much to screw up there

besides the OMG is nothing more than a G30 running the G20 metal FBL head and tail boom...how can they claim that as new? (the ol old parts new name thing again)

I think that "Boat" took the scenic route if you ask me.

I think that when a company "blows out" prices on a model they have had for a while...thats just a stock clearance sale, to make room for something else.

Something tells me the Radikal, especially the G20 is in the ICU...

Daves Discount Motors has a close out on G200 PUH engine parts, and some G20 stuff is no longer available...

Espirt Model no longer carries G20 or G30 kits, not even by special order, the N/E640 is still special order....they do have parts still (g20,30), but for how long who knows.

Rons Heli Pros has the G20 kit, but seems reluctant to stock much more than basic parts for it (I think hes getting rid of it IMO)

And Heli World is the ONLY other place that stocks stuff for the Radikal Line...no one else in the states carries it much less any LH Stores...

anybody remember E-SKY... ...SSDD

Oh well, I'm just barking...

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

You obviously have not tried their Radikal N and E 640 models.

The multi-rotor industry has exploded in popularity recently and since people have been using the Gas models for aerial photography it seemed like a natural progression to also offer multi-rotors for the aerial photographer.

What he flies, people buy!

This the conversation I had with Century this evening. Take it however you may, I am not giving up on my G20!

I've owned and flown my G20 Radikal for a few years now. I love it! When I bought this heli it was to replace all my other helis based on the flying times, support and parts availability. The rumors on the forums are spinning away and I haven't heard anything confirming or denying those rumors from Century. Please confirm or deny the rumors that Century will no longer be making parts for the G20/G30 helicopters.
Thank you.

Century Helicopter Products Hello Ted. We want to let you know that the information is untrue. We are still producing parts for our current helicopters and still providing support for them.

Ted Schubert Thank you. Can you mention this on the forums? There are a lot of folks wanting a gasser that are hearing rumors and basing their decision on bad info. You're loosing businesses as long as the rumors are going around.

Ted Schubert may i copy and paste you response?

Century Helicopter Products Yes you may Ted. Our CEO has been informed and Century will also take the necessary actions to discount these rumors. Thank you for your continued support of Century Helicopter Products.

I always have fun. Some times are more fun than others.

I love my Radikals as well. I bought a G30 on the forums earlier in the year and Paul spent a lot of time with me on the phone getting all necessary part numbers and procedures in place to convert it to a V2. He doesn't deal with customers directly anymore, but assured me that parts would be available.

There were a lot of parts on the site that were showing up as out of stock. I pointed this out to him, and within hours they were listed back in stock. He told me they get insanely busy during the summer months with multi rotor support (That may be were the rumors come from) and didn't have time to update stock.

if you're looking for parts that are out of stock, give them a call. They're even willing sometimes to open up a kit and take parts out if you need them.

Finalcutbro,

We've chatted a few times back and forth. I commented on how you screen name is part of one of the last "Good" Pink Floyd Albums, The Final Cut.
Anyhow, I love Century and have had no issues with them over the years. However everyone's stirring the pot (myself a little too) and I wanted to get the answer from the company.
I am ok with what they had to say and believe them.

Ted
