Intense therapy, the help from a few friends and the fact that I already have an Eclipse and Optic 6 has helped me overcome this urge.

Anybody talk to heli-world about getting the wrong servos? My radio won't be here until Wednesday. I hope they shipped me the bb servos.

No one answered my e-mail and phone call. I guess they are still on vacation.

The servos I put in a slowflyer and havent tried them yet but they look ok.

The transmitter is awesome.

I have two planes and the helicopter setup no more twisting pots on my old VG6H.
Yes, I'm very happy with the TX and Rx

Now I just need another heli to use it with. The MaxiR is calling my name

RD6000 Super, works with Blade CP

Just thought you guys might like to know, I directed a flying buddy of mine to this sale (he bought the TX, RX, and 2 servo combo).

We set it up yesterday on his BCP, we had to of course program the radio to PPM-R (neg shift), and swap the CH1 and CH2 connections on the 4-in-1 (that's the only difference on airtronic's CCPM channel mapping), and reverse a few channels, program a pitch and throttle curve, etc... That was it

The crystal that came with the RX combo even worked in the BCP 4-in-1 (single conversion RX)!!! Admittedly, the manual sucks, and I didn't find a way to change swash mix directions (pitch was reversed, so we just programmed a reverse pitch curve), but it was easy enough to setup once we got the hang of the menus (I've programmed Futaba, JR, and Spektrum radios so far, airtronics was altogether different).

Anyone get a response to why the servos weren't BB servos? I haven't received a response to my email.

I called them today. A lady transferred my call to tech support and put me on hold for a while. She picked up the phone again and told their tech support was very busy. She told the tech support would call me back, but..................no return call from them for the whole day!

Isn't Century Helicopter a big company? Their customer service is bad.

I'm still waiting for mine. It seems they need a seperate purchase order to deliver to any address other than the billing address. I thought I had sorted it out on Fri but I was told today that it was still sitting there. Will post about the servo's as soon as I can.

I have a bad feeling we're never going to see any BB servos.

So what, you still got one heck of a deal even with standard servos.

I agree. Enjoy what you have. I knew that the servos would not be that great anyway for $10.
