Good for you. I just saw them at $52 and thought if they go that low I might as well try for some spares, but it looks like someone else drove them up higher than me.

I got my 500pro up today and found that I damaged my tail servo as it was jumping. I have a MKS ds8910a to replace it, but it comes with little bitty grommets and no metal inserts. I am thinking I should just mount it solid or put the screws threw the grommets and just snug them down.

I tend to agree. I think a lot of these guys are hobby shops that found one way to stay above water by parting out kits. I don't think their vendors would like it if they did it as the store front.

well, if its not the plastic blades, they sure are not helping any, and only causing the problem to get worse. Therefore, i will no longer use the plastic blades. The blade grips are the cncheli upgrade grips and have been surviving all the punishment i've been dishing out. The align metal grips broke an arm on the first crash and the feathering bolt broke off inside the hub. I could go and take the whole tail section apart to hunt for the ghost vibe part by part, but i just wanna fly, and the cf blades will allow me to sooner rather than later.

Don't get the align heatsink for the YEP it won't fit. The YEP is too wide you would have to cut one side off for it to fit. Not only that but it weighs a ton. The one I cut out of a old heatsink is half the weight and dissipates three times the heat. I will just have to buy that glue

Flew everything today. I was having a real blast with the 500. One guy from France told me, "very beautiful flying" So I got that going for me

I think you may have miss read me. I was saying that the plastic blades are fine until you had crashed and damaged them and now may be causing the problems you have. But dont right off plastic blades as they are just as if not sometimes better then cf and glass blades.

I had some very bad CF tail blade grip that were out of balance and caused all sorts of issues. Once going back to plastic I was all good.

Good stuff mhills. I had very much the same response from a plane flyer today. only took out the 450 today to dial it back in after a big crash a few months ago.

Oh I forgot to say that the YEP after putting the startup power to auto now starts perfect. Nice and smooth. So far just as good as my CC

No throttle blip anymore? Could you post your settings? I have messed around with it quite a bit, but was never able to get rid of that little blip. Thanks!

Thanks, is your governor turned off? It seems any governor mode will have the blip.
