Default Building Airwolf Scale

I just purchased the Century 620 Electric Airwolf Kit.
I purchased another Century Swift NX to learn on so I don't destroy the Airwolf.
I also purchased a Great Planes Simulator and a Blade RTF MCPX.
I'm periodically purchasing the required items not included in the Airwolf Kit so it will be a long time involved in the building of the Airwolf.

I have built numerous Minature Aircraft Helicopters including the 1005 Excell Gaser but I have never learned to fly. I enjoyed building the Helicopters and selling them to eager buyers. I'm determined to learn how to fly.

At any rate I would like to receive input on anyone who has in fact flown the Century Swift NX. I'm of course going to utilize the Century Swift Mechanics that came with the Airwolf 620 Kit but I'm wondering if a upgraded version of the Century Swift should be utilized.

Default Airwolf Build

Has anyone completed a Century 620 Electric Airwolf Kit Build. This Kit didn't come with any instructions, Centuryheli.com advised me to utilize the Century Swift NF Manual. The Century Swift NF Mechanics are utilized in the Airwolf Kit. Any input would be much appreciated.

Default Swift

I have several Swift's and the NX as well I have the Century 109 Coast Guard with the stock Swift the only thing I did was replace the Swift paddles with the Hawk Pro paddles this slowed the response and made it allot easier to fly it like a scale helicopter.

Been flying my Swift NX for a few years, shortly after it came out I picked up a kit.

Had a couple minor bumps along the way, but nothing major. I put a 6S lipo on mine and beat the crap out of it, so I have done a few upgrades to help it handle that. But for the purpose of a scale heli it will be fine stock.

I dont really fly mine very much anymore, the 640's and my 90 give me my fix. I miss having my old Bell 222, so I have been looking to do the exact same thing, deciding between airwolf and bell 222...maybe a winter project.

I do recommend though using something like hyperion servos for the retracts. You can program them to operate at slower speeds, so they will give a more realistic retract.

Nope. And personally I think you will get more information from other people if you:
1. Do not type in capitals and bold;
2. And provide a little more information

I hope somebody can help you out.

No I haven't but I have seen the fuse kit in person and it is very nice looking. The scale section is where you need to be looking for answers.

Yes please turn the caps off. It's like yelling,most peeps don't like it.

I am aslo buildfing the 620 airwolf and am curious, WHY would paddles make that kind of difference? I definitely want that slower response.

I would suggest trying to post on ScaleRCHelis.com. Should be able to find help there.

Good luck.
