Century G30 repair help/advice
« on: October 25, 2017, 08:55:43 PM »

Hi all,

My G30 Radikal suffered a near fatal crash about a year ago.  As you all may know Century have gone out of business and parts for the Radikal series are now like rocking horse do do.

I am looking/seeking suggestions from anyone on suitable replacements utilising other branded parts to get my heli back in the air.

I need to replace the boom, full tail assembly and tail belt which have been destroyed and cannot be salvaged.  The boom is 25mm if that helps.

Can anyone help with advice.    :notworthy:

Thanks in advance

    There is a thread on RunRyder that might be helpful:

    https://rc.runryder.com/helicopter/t517405p1/

    There might be hints there for tail assemblies as well. 

    Found this too:

    G’day John good to see you on here.
    Good find for Peirs, I did a search on the same site and found this http://www.heli-world.com/tail-boom-tt-drive-radikal-g30-v2-v1-hw6062g3g.html cheap too, I assume it’ll fit, maybe email them to double check.

    Cheers Ralph

    Thanks Chaps,

    Yes I know about Heli-World, about 70% of the parts are there except for a few which are no longer available, which if they're no longer available as in not making them, it is no good buying some of the parts.

    I am thinking of using the tail from a Logo 600 SE, does anyone know if this would be suitable (the boom is 25mm) and it is belt drive.  
    Or even use the tail section from a Logo 600 SX V2

    Cheers
