Century NEO 660 Maiden Flight

I just finished building the Century Helicopters NEO 660 hexacopter.

At 660mm it is my largest multirotor yet. It is a very nice airframe, with seemingly high quality components. I will be doing a step by step build video in the near future, but for now enjoy this quick maiden flight video.

It flies nicely… some more tuning of the NAZA flight controller’s GAIN settings will be necessary to really dial in this larger copter. As a testament to how well tempered this hexacopter is, the video shot handheld on an iPhone 5 while I was flying with my other hand. There’s no camera onboard yet as I’m just doing setup test flights right now.
