Well they were sweet until until my CopterX tail rotor released a grip during a high speed diving pass, but my combo held true with the tail rock solid as it ploughed into the ground hehe. My 500 has been sitting on the bench for a few months all busted up, but last weekend I was having such a great time flying my CopterX450 until the forward belt drive gear separated(I didnt even know it had two parts) allowing the belt to slip off the gear resulting in a spiraling attempt at grounding her. Anyway on the back of the fun I had with my 450 I decided to build HK500GT this time. Heres a couple of pics on my CX450 and CX500 in mint condition. Oh well clones rock !!
Beenflying was telling me that he's had great success with this tail servo on a ZYX. I'm pretty much just using his 500 setup on mine with Mi servos on the cyclic and tail, YEP80A ESC etc.

Just have to remember to not run these at over 280hz no matter what Blue Arrow's website says (the listed specs used to say 280hz max, then it changed to 333hz for some reason and people started having problems trying to run them at that)
