IMHO.. your asking way too much for somhing that has nothing standing out + comes with damage.

You can build a 500 with all new parts for the price you are asking.. 90%

Like I said. thats my opinion.. others might say its a good price

If I was to sell my uncrashed perfectly maintained 500FB heli I'll be lucky to get $350 for it. AND mine comes with all the Align fix's, 80A ESC (dead now), futaba 520 & futaba 9257 etc etc.

Plus the canopy in the pic looks very shabby makining me think what eles is shabby.

What I'm saying might sound harsh, but you wanted others opinion and this is what most buyers would be looking at.

Also presentation is key to selling

Try not to take this personal. But its what one would call a beater heli. Given the electronics in it along with damage. Its worth $300-$325 @ best. That price would probably have included shipping and p.p fee's.

No I mean these:

What they did was remove the raised bit on the slider and moved the ball in closer to the shaft. The ball is now held by a plastic cup rather than by the metal hole in the arm.

As an aside, the Align bearing holder had gritty bearings that would bind up when the slide bushing was tightened. I had to remove the bearings with a heat gun and replace them. This is like the fifth or sixth bad out of the box Align part I've gotten out the the handful I've ordered.

Thats super super cheap for a 500 Mhills. What was wrong with it or were you just looking to get rid of it ?

The plastic cup thing is in the one I put up too H60186A... just this one is not for the pro. I have installed these on both the 500 & 550 kits I'm building.

My current 500 has the H60186 which is the old type with no plastic cup. Still this one is hold up with not much play

But in your case the appearance of the heli looks somewhat scary to fly.

You may attract a newbie if they dont know any better, but I would be scared for a newbie to fly that heli in its condition.

Also do I see right? One of the screws for the battery tray is not screwing into the frame as you have cut the hole out while doing the battery tray mod?
