There are 30 size nitros that are about the size of a "true" 500, i.e using blades of about 500 mm, but even those need to be flown further away from the general public than we can do with electric. Thing is, the 50 size is not much more expensive, if you have access to a suitable flying site, and rather than looking at it as more intimidating, you can see it as "slower physics" and greater stability. I fly 450 electrics generally, but still have a 600N in the UK, and it is a bit of a shock to my system when I fly it!
