New Align 500X in the air

Flew it Sunday for the "maiden", put 2 flights on it. And added 4 more flights today. Couldn't be happier with it. Spent a lot of time on the bench trying to get it right and it paid off. I will be doing some fine tuning over the next 15-20 flights. But for a SPORT flyer like me, this one is gonna be fun. As you can see, I'm doing my part to bring along another generation - my 2 Grandsons. They are both SOLO fixed wing pilots and we are now working on Heli's with the little Blade 230sV2.

You did right by going with IKON. I have a 500X heli with an IKON on it also and couldn't be happier.

Thank you.

A) I'm using Admiral 3,300mA 30C batteries. I have had excellent luck with a wide variety of Admiral batteries in the last 3 years. if you take a look at them they have outstanding ratings for pretty much ALL their batteries across the board.

B) The field is in Lakeside, Ca. at Cactus Park. It is my home club - "First Weed Wacker Aero Squadron" We have flown there for over 30 years now.

The 500X is a nice size heli to start new flyers on. Flies very nicely and easy to see. Parts are reasonably priced.
