Hi, i have bought two kits and both have same problem with strong tail vibrations (resonance on high RPM) only when tail blades are mounted. One kit i mounted slower KV (1300) motor to keep low RPM HS (cca 2500) and it still vibrates, but less, so i can fly... On second kit i have faster motor and HS at about 2750 RPM and it is impossible to fly it.
Have checked belt tension and if there is something bent or some bad bearing, but no visual problems... Also changed tail blades, but still same problem.
Must be something wrong with tail, but i dont find what makes it come to resonance.

I found YT video with same problem here (if it wil not work here is yt video number- watch?feature=player_embedded&v=-GXCvRu2SRs)
I did bought this helicopter, electronics, everything from Hobbyking and I ended up replacing every single parts with the original Align. I was very disappointed about this product! I bought this helicopter to my local hobby shop and they are the expert about helicopters to fine tune it. The guy couldn't lift it off the ground after all the fine tuning he did! Now it turns out a got a totally new ALIGN T-REX 500 HELICOPTER! AND IT FLIES PERFECT TOO! You always get what you pay for! lesson to learn!
Super Teil fr das Geld!

Haube sollte man allerdings Tauschen.
Stosunek Ceny do Jakosci Bardzo Dobry Polecam Daniel !!!
Ansich ein guter Heli. Die Haube ist eher was fr den Mll und war bei mir bereits bei der Lieferung mehrfach gebrochen. Haupt- sowie Freilaufzahnrad haben Hhenschlag jenseits von Gut und Bse. Heckzahnrad rutscht auf der Welle. Damit unbrauchbar und gegen Teile von Align ersetzt. Die restlichen Teile des Heli sind recht gut im Vergleich zu meinem original 500 ESP Super Combo. Fliege den HK 500 CMT mit RJX Flybarless Kopf...
yet another great product at the best price available. every thing was in correct condition and i must say that the frame itself is perfect. built it straight away and flies well. used

bought this as a second 500 heli,first was the 500gt which wasnt to bad.this looked good at first but after 2 or 3 flights started getting rough,after stripping down due to violent tail wagging i found both tail bearings completly shot!main rotor bearings lumpy and one way bearing very rough,bearings in tail pitch slider links had collapsed completly.
all parts replaced with align parts so cost is a lot higher than you think.
overall not such good value as you might think.
Due to recent experience I will disassemble this model and rebuild with my loctite on all bolts but my other hk500 flies well with the turnigy 500 h3126 motor and yep 80a esc
this is my 5 hk heli and they seem to get better with less upmarket parts needed and this 500cmt is going together well but i am dissapointed in the amount of plastic parts when imfo says ALL ALLOY and UPGRADED TO THE MAX not quite true. Will be happy if flys as well as my fully blinged HK500gt.Should change imfo wording Hoddy King.
Fr Anfnger nur zu empfehlen.. nicht zu gro und nicht zu klein..
Falls mal kracht einfach noch mal den Bausatz aus Hamburg per GLS..
kommt ganz schnell und gnstig, gnstiger als DE- ..FS
