You might download or stream some of the Finless Bob build videos from HeliFreak such as these for the 500 He hasn't done a 500 FBL, but you should be able to find a 3GX thread. In fact the Align manual for the 500 3G has pretty good setup instructions.

There's also this T8J review which might be helpful.

Thanks for the info, yes my local hobby shop gave me the finless bob vids of the 500 build, was just hoping i could get FBL videos, but have not been able to thus far.....question....do servos centre themselves when you connect them to power for the first time?

If they're getting a 1500us or 1520us signal they will.... i.e. if you have them hooked up to your RX and have the TX sticks at neutral, with zero trim and sub-trim.
