If you can fly your Trex 500 and 550 around without any problem, you will have a great time with the Goblin 500.

What C rating are the batteries? 3800's seem to be what most people are running in the 630.

Strange that they won't balance out, is the weight of these batteries much different than the weight of the batteries you normally use?
