Blade 500x Questions

Hey guys,

I've been flying for a bit over two months now and I'm able to fly my nano cpx and 130x solidly, but not 3D.

Someone is selling a blade 500x with only 60 flights for $220. He is including spare parts and two batteries. I am wondering if this is a good deal and if this helicopter would be right for me and my skill level.

All feedback is appreciated.

Thanks

I might be tempted for $200 but be aware that the heli is used and may have troubles.

Be also aware that the 500X is discontinued, although many will say spares are available for a time. Question is, will they be the parts you need.

Be aware that you are quite limited in cyclic servo choices, because Blade chose to use a rather unusual dimensions for cyclic servos. Effectively you're limited to the stockers, which were made, I understand quite specifically for the Blade 500X which is now discontinued... What will become of that line of servos then?

I reckon you'll be able to fly it no bothers though caveat emptor

That's the biggest problem. Do you know of any Canadian shops that sell blade 500x parts?
