well it doesnt look good any more . i sold it to a guy in sc and he stole what he could witch was most of the mechanics , pilot , head , blades esc , batt x2, radio,charger,servos,and then he filed a claim with paypal for the 1200 dollars . stating it was missing parts and not as described . when i saw that i knew i was about to be scammed ! he sent the fuse back destroyed . and to top it off pay pal does not protect you when they do a charge back . and i was prety much ok with having a chance to get my heli back after the huge regret of selling now i would have to start completely over again witch funds will prohibit . so if any one needs the ass end of a 600 size md500 let me know i would be happy to give it to a nice home free of charge

That really does suck. I'm sorry to hear that happened to you after all the work you did to put it together under the most trying of situations. The back end of my 500 was one area that was in good shape after the crash. Take care and maybe see you this fall at HSM?

thanks guys . i was so looking forward to getting a radio back in my hands and start flying . i feel like i made one of the biggest mistakes of my life by selling off my helli . i figured i have a real plane now and would quickly loose interest in rc . but going out to fly the ultralight takes almost a full day of prep for me and the set up out at the river bed and then to muster the courage to fly it makes it more of a chore than fun . i miss flying my rc dearly . and i am quickly loosing interest in the ultralight . as a matter of fact i would trade that thing in a hot second for my hobby back . well i gues you live and learn . you can never really leave the hobby .only postpone for a few till the stars re alighn lol

You know, a&^%holes like that eventually get exactly what they deserve. He destroyed it just so that you have little or no proof that it was delivered in perfect condition. He takes pictures, shows them to PayPal and you are out everything. He might make the mistake on attending a scale fly-in so if you have some pictures of the head and chassis, along with the serial number of the radio, it may take a long time but eventually this jerk will be found out. Take care.
