My Century Hummingbird (Airwolf)

   

Bought Aug 06 and originally had the Bell 222 fuselage.  Although fixed pitch was quite flyable however, once the battery voltage started to drop it would not turn right if the nose was raised.  By mid 08 the body had become very poor so fitted an Airwolf body (didn't bother with the fins).  Requires a bit of getting back into 'fixed pitch' mentality if not flown for a while and will be kept for a bit of inside fun flying every so often.

Century Hummingbird V3

Minor upgrading again notably the main rotor head.

Fixed pitch version basically a V3 however CP version though looking similar is fundamentally different.

Century Hummingbird Elite 3D Pro

Though called a Hummingbird, apart from looks is a totally different helicopter and much larger.  Fully capable of all the 3D manoeuvres.
