The boom in drones[airbourne cameras] and cheap heli clones has pretty much destroyed the medium heli market.
Some are hanging on, but struggeling.
Still a small market for 'real' quality helis[as always]

But I think there will be a return to helis as people want to master the challange of heli flying-rather than just point it where you want to go with a drone.

Of course helis now with their recovery/stabilize systems built into the flybar less system are making it easier.
Model planes are now going the same--pay $300 and get a scale looking little plane thats almost impossible to crash.

Lot of people in the AP industry and elsewhere in the UAV sphere are slowly discovering the limitations of large multirotors and are reluctantly returning to helicopters for those applications because big multirotors just don't cut it there. They were hoping multirotors would be a magic bullet for large AP platforms etc. but it has turned out to not be the case. Of course the companies making them don't mind talking up large multirotors and taking their money for platforms that don't really do the job very well.

The DJI Inspires are being used in Hollywood films so I don't really see the need for RC helis anymore. And since the camera technology is continually getting better and smaller there's no need for huge aerial camera rigs.

The fact that Century had stopped making helis and parts was confirmed here well over a year ago. Many of their international distributors, such as Leisure-Tech in Canada and Joutec in France purchased a good supply from them when Century announced it. So they still have a fair supply of many parts. So anyone looking for some can still try them. If you need any, try sending an email to orders@leisuretech.ca

I tried ordering parts for my Radikal G20 from LeisureTech and received an email reply stating they don't accept payment via PayPal and suggested I "email" my credit card info to them. REALLY? credit card info via email!! No thank you, they may as well asked that I "wire" the money.
