Just picked up a Century 620e Carbon frame new from Century. This is my first big electric; Just would like to know if there's anyone still running this bird. What, pinion, battery, ESC do you recommend. Going to be a scale bird. Already have Align DS655 for tail and 3 DS 615 for cyclic along with GP780 Align gyro, funky 610s blades all new. Any help appreciated, thanks.

I had one for some time and it flew pretty well (was my first EP), although I had a very severe chicken dance at spool down, making it hard to land (although I always auto'ed it as far as possible to kill the RPM). Because of the chicken dance (others had this too) I wouldn't put it into a scale fuselage as it will shatter into pieces...

I used the Century 6S Power Combo which worked out fine (motor + ESC + BEC on 6S 5000mAH).

It was a nice heli, but getting parts to France was a killer (even when heliworld were doing well for some obscure reason they couldn't ship to France on the website).

My friend's Swift did that exact same thing on spool down. Sometimes pretty violently. Seems like it would be really bad in a scale fuse.

As soon as you put it in the scale fuselage with different landing gear the chicken dance will be gone. If you start off with the scale platform base on it and some E640 landing struts there will be no chicken dance either. Lots of them are used in scale setups so no worries.
