Just talked to Century in California about an issue I was having. The guy stated that they aren't going to be supporting the line of gassers like the Radikal's. I was needing a part and were out of stock. He said they were moving more towards the multi rotary heli's. so I guess all of us with the Radikal's will just be SOL with parts in the future. Well this is just great news. Screw anything to do with Century.

What a way to do business. I told him that other manufacturers still offered parts for there older lines of helicopters. They act like they don't give a chit. Screw em.

...Wonderful ...last F*ing time I buy anything Century...

time to polish her up and put her on EBAY along with all the spare parts and extra engines...never again. What good is it to have a heli I can't get parts for...even from the manufacturer.

to bad theres not a big ole finger throwing smilie

Any century Reps here wana counter this? ( que the crickets )

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

I have my eye set on plane for this engine, so when parts run out...

Bummer, just when I finally converted her to FBL and was tossing her around some more but back to scale flying and babying her.

Guys, I dont see why any reps would come in here and be chasticed over a decision they had absolutely no say what so ever. The ones I met in person as well as the one that always responded to my few questions, they have my respect and condolences.

Considering consolidating all century stuff myself into one other heli. BUT, watch out cause century may not be the only "brand" that's throwing in the towel! I have 5 century birds so I know the anxiety of worrying about the parts availability. Hey, blame it on multi rotor but the standard version of heli will last longer than multi rotor!!! Rc heli is the elite! Not multi rotor! Just sayin......cheers!

There is no such thing as up, it's all out...

I called Heli-world and that's what the person told me that they were focusing more towards the multi rotary helicopters. Whether its true or not guess time will tell.

It's true that Century has been releasing a lot of new multi-rotor models recently just like the rest of the industry.
This portion of the industry has exploded in popularity recently.

They have not given up on the regular models, if you look at the post above you will see their new RC format conversion for the T-Rex 700.
This was based on customer requests for an RC format engine. So they do listen.

They have more new products coming for the Radikal line of models and they will continue to support all the old models too.

What he flies, people buy!

one rep says stories are not true...
well no, not like that, the Rep said Century still makes parts,

I was the one that used the word "stories"

the way I see it, is> if Century was going out why would Century take the time to design and manufacture a 1-off kit for the Align and send it to Carey for him to build and test, and tell Carey it's Ok to post it on YouTube
