I got one of these about a week ago . I bought all the inexpensive stuff, hk moto trinity esc hk 401b and for $4.99 servos. took me about 3 afternoons to go through it. Loc tight all metal to metal screws and assemble. I did the 401 gyro mod as directed and set up the esc. first flight adjusted tail servo linkage and setup. also adjusted blade tracking. I found the kit and elsctronics to be of good quility and to work well so far. I have no complaints and look forward to ringing her out later today. If you have any questions or coments let me know. mike t

well I took it out yesterday aftenoon and flew her to my limit of ability. flips, stationary roll, loops, rolls in forward flight and inverted hover all went well. I can say that it autos well, as it appears that I didn't put enough lock tight on the set screw on the gear, on the motor and had to auto it when she lost power. all's well that ends well. I think this heli ia a great heli to learn on. I started with the blade cp pro then moved to the t-rex 450. I now am flying a furion 450. This is my first 500 and my 1st experiance with larger heli's. Its much more stable than a 450. mike t
