Do a search and you will find a few threads about this counterfeit Piccolo from China. I have one and I would say you are better off buying a Fun Piccolo instead of this imitator. I also have the Piccolo and Hornet so I can tell you it will never fly like these do.

Denial is fine until you have the thing in your hands and it doesn't fly. Take a look at the e-Bay ad that runs every week out of Hong Kong
http://cgi.lycos.ebay.com/ws/eBayISA...tem=3102345335
.......welcome to the real world. The Century Hummingbird is the Handy EP .........still don't believe.....compare the specs. Don't kid yourself, there was a post here from a local that visited the Century store and got the full bait and switch story of the decade. It amazes me that Century that fought uphill to improve the quality image of their product line is going for a phony piece of c**p like this. Still got to have it, wait until February or March and you'll see them on the Swap and Sell for a lot less than $79.95.
Happy New Year - Boyd

Default Hoverup is right

My nrxt door neighbor ordered one from centuryheli and he got burnt, it was cheaply made and one hit , it flew all apart.

worst 79.00 ever spent, he then went and ordered the piccilo and has had it for awhile now, he loves it, cost a little more, but then I guess you get what you pay for.....thing is, the two look almost the same in the way they are built...
