Where Did the X-500 Go ?

Seems the X-500 was very popular for the short while between it and the Trex 500. From the short list of talks, it flew very well and is from 300 to 500g lighter than the Align 500 and clones. And it is very close in size. The price is dropping, maybe a sale price to stimulate sales.
Maybe sport flyers would get an additional few minutes with it.

I think the rotor size and heli length is close to a 500 but as I saw in one photo I found, it really looks like a boom and blade stretched 450.

I haven't pushed the button yet, but oh well, here's my secret, about 50% off the usual price :

It's the next size up from the MX450, BTW, this is the engineer's personal company, he is the one that designed the Align 400 and 450's .

ARK is a good quality heli, the canopies never did catch the eye well, I put Trex canopies on mine. Their gears are VERY round for example.
