Checking out their web site, and am pretty impressed with all of their prices. I am looking at getting a small edf jet plane, where MotionRC sells it for $139 and ValueHobby sells it for $108.

I think I see a lot more GForce batteries in my future

Thanks for info. The ones I have work fine but not much time on them. I bought a couple of profile Foamies for field. Kits are fine instructions are horrible.
Anyway Value hobby has some good prices. H/K lost me a few years ago. They are ok till problem and leave it at that. HH with weak market should strongly think about what they want for batteries to fly their birds. I only buy E-flite 150 ma 45 C batteries for my Nano CP-X's bl. Local Hobby shop is just about all E-flite/ Great Planes foamies or ARF's. Wood kits are guillows/ Sig/ Dumas. Dumas is local here in Tucson. Very old style Red brick building.

I have held off on mine. I know I need charger and batteries. I have been testing g-force batteries and looks decent. At 50+ a pop for 500 D batteries I don't want problems. I do look foward to flying my biggest bird.

I predict that when you take that 500 up for the first time you will be smiling ear to ear...

I am sure you are right on. The day it arrived I was blown away from sheer size of it and weight. big heli for me flying at that time was a 250 size.. I took a 450 and side by side the 450 D looked real small.

At the field friend flys 500+ and 600 sized. There are a few that have T-Rex 700's/ another has a Golblin 700 bird. i have not seen either fly at this time. Thats way/ way more than i'll ever get. 500 is not bad size.
