I have been flying a converted Century Hawk for about a year and a half, and love it! Compared to my Shogun, it is a piece of cake to fly. Here is my setup...

Century Hawk Sport kit
Century Schweizer 300 conversion kit
Mega 22/45/3 Brushless motor
Hacker B50 heat sink
Castle Creations Phoenix-45 ESC
2 packs of 8-cells 3300 NiMH batteries
25T Joker pinion
Fred Bronk motor mount
Vario battery mounts
JR 527 standard servos
GWS PG-03 gyro (I know I need a better one!)
JR 600mah RX battery (will be replaced with U-BEC)

It weighs 8lbs RTF and I get 7 minutes of flight time.

That is pretty amazing! I would rather watch that kind of precision flying than most of the videos I have seen before.

Hey HeliTown:

Thanks for the precision flying video, it's fantastic. I wish I could copy it to my computer. My computer knows how, but I don't.

Though I don't undertand the language, that is the vedo that I watch more than once again and again.
Enjoy.

I watched this last night with my japanese wife and she said that one of the guys had been flying for 10 years. The woman in the crowd is his wife and when he won the money ($9000US) she said that she is happier than she was on her wedding day (Poor, Poor woman :) ).

THat is the most spectacular thing I have ever seen. I could probably do the city thinfg and maybe the cage with my Picco Z (I know, i am a wanna-be) but that is simply incredible!
