-The Rhino Gear 12t hardened steel pinions came in the mail today. I wonder how long I'll be able to resist seeing how they run? :-)

They show up on forum all the time. I'm sure many were bought at great HH sale. As time goes by they are fewer and further apart. HH has 550X on add but only comes with motor. T-Rex 150 cost more than my new Blade 500 D bnf.!!

-Yes, they are around and not priced to dearly. It is a great model; I flew three packs at the park and ride after work today. I was letting her rip a bit with some good 'ol sport flying :-)

I paid a very good price for my 500x when I got it.. BUT, that was when it was brand new. I'm trying to remember, I think it was $690. I then of course put a whole bunch of aluminum junk all over it. Ended up with over $1000 in it. Great helicopter, but I was always a little annoyed at how much I ended up spending on it by the time they were selling it for $450 or whatever it was.

I'm not missing the boat this time. I just ordered a 600x combo from Amain for $499 + $40 off + $5 customer rewards points + free ship = $455 shipped. I've been hitting the classifieds to find an HV 120 ESC then I'll be good. Plus it already comes with most of the aluminum crap on it. I ordered some Edge blades for it and I'll grab a couple Lynx and Blade upgrades and a Fusuno canopy and I'll end up with about $700 in it total. Sweeeeet
