Century Hawk version

Go to this link. All Century Hawk manuals can be downloaded from this link. All of their heli line is there too.

Using those manuals you should be able to identify you Hawk.


And having manuals will help you a lot when going to the LHS with part # and or upgrades.

Some points to look at: Hawk Pro has torque tube driven tail, Hawk Sport has wire driven tail - 10 mm main shaft on newer model or 8mm main shaft on older model.

Where do you fly in Surrey? There are a number of clubs in the lower mainland area (RCFCBC, Ridgeflyers, PoCo and a few more I believe), that have a lot of Century heli flyers as members.

I am sure that there are some that could identify yours and help you with it.

If memory serves me, the Hawk II is the version from about 9 years ago. It has evolved into the current Hawk Pro which is a much improved heli.

I love my Hawk Pro. I found a lot of changes that they had made over my old Hawk III, that I owned a number of years ago. Due to the limited pitch range of the old HIII, that used the shorter and smaller 8mm mainshaft, made it a good and dependable trainer from hover and on to mild 3D. The changes really make the Hawk Pro a very different and much more capable heli, which requires minumum maintenance. Out of the box, without any upgrades, it can take you from basic training on to some pretty extreme 3D.

I am sure that if you can locate Phil Noel from your area, he can identify yours and give you a lot of advice, as he owns the company that imports and distributes them to the various hobby shops in Canada. He is a member here on RCCanada, so maybe you can PM him.

Glad to hear that you have discovered Norburn - good people who also fly helis.

Dean used to do a lot of movie stuff (flew R/C helis in the Airwolf series).
