 Jan 19, 2006, 11:14 AM How high does it go?..duh Currently in...UK Joined Jun 2004 2,663 Posts Lol thats a big pencil Can you imagine how small thoses flybar paddle bolts would really be.
 Jan 19, 2006, 11:17 AM Registered User San Carlos, California, United States Joined May 2002 7,640 Posts Diameter is 6.8 inches, so radius is 3.4 inches, which is 8.6 cm. Disk surface would be 8.6 * 8.6 * 3.14159 = 232.4 cm^2. Disk loading would be 44 / 232.4 = 0.189 g/cm^2. Piccolo V2 radius is about 25 cm, for a disk size of 1963.5 cm^2. Weight of a Piccolo V2 is about 300 grams, or disk loading of 0.152 g/cm^2. The math checks out, so I guess it's not a joke? Toshi

 Jan 19, 2006, 11:20 AM Laughing so hard it hurts Dayton, OH Joined Dec 2005 409 Posts LOL, nice try... Century does have a new micro in the works though.... I found this out when I emailed them about the new 6 channel transmitter they're now packing with thier RTF v3 kit.... From what I got it's going to be collective pitch, and something about being modulated and that the 6 channel transmitter will require this "modulation" in order to go into CCPM mode..... whatever that's supposed to mean(i would have to assume what they mean is that the CCPM mixing will be done at the 4-in-1 unit instead of at the TX)

Sorry if I falsely raised anyone's hopes. Twistedblades, it certainly is interesting to know that century have a new micro in the works. I'm guessing it'll be of the 400 breed- their lineup is missing one of that size.
