It appears that the HK-500GT is manufactured by the same company as the EXI-500 "plastic version" and CopterX 500, just rebadged for HK.

I have two of the EXI-500 helis, one almost ready for hover testing and another about 50% complete. No problems with either kit yet. I've been using the Align Trex 500 assembly manual for reference when needed.

I agree that these shouldn't need much upgrading as the head is mostly metal. The aluminum frame may prevent some of the statis discharge problems that others with the CF frames have encountered.

RCnewb, it's great that you're doing a build thread. There's some good information on the EXI-500 thread in the Large Helis section, but you have to wade through alot to extract it.
