This 500 size helicopter offers an excellent power-to-weight ratio that makes for stellar 3D performance. Also featuring a flybarless rotor head and torque-tube driven tail, this machine is capable of handling whatever hardcore aerobatics you choose to throw at it!

This heli comes 90% pre-assembled so you can be in the air in no time. Just complete the final assembly, install your own electronics and your ready to fly!

Six flights so far. Futaba radio, IKON2, Typhoon 500, 60A ESC, 6S battery, Align metal gear servos. I've replaced the main gear and the cyclic ball links. So far, a great helicopter for the price.

Good Heli, Just make sure you blue lock tight all the screws, even on the tail. and replace the main gear with a genuine Trex 500 Gear. Its more beefy and less flimsy as the stock gear.

A very good heli for the money. It has some weak points but nothing major.HK does not sell parts so you will have to get them from a chinese seller, they are ready availble. Also you must check and adjust everything and she will fly great.

What a great Value Helicopter for starting in flybarless flying, if you are stepping up from 450's there are quite a few differences in the putting it together bit, I found it easier to fit the cyclic servo's without the main shaft in place to have better access to the back plates that clamp the servo in position, don't forget to threadlock everything there's a lot more power driving the 500 so make extra certain its not going to come apart. When its set-up with its flight controller its absolutely rock solid in the hover. I'm very much a beginner still practising the hover and gentle circuits but the 500 is superb, here's a tip I was given, fit a 550 tail fin its a bit longer and will help prevent the tail rotor caching the ground and breaking the bevel gears!

Great little heli, flying sport in its standard as supplied form. Torque tube drive gears slop free, very smooth auto rotation. Tail assembly is good all round and fbl head cant fault it, main gear looks a little soft but fine so far. Nothing came loose or broken the kit apart from the canopy which is very thin, brittle and the only negative part on the heli.

I had some quality issues with some of the parts that came with this kit. specifically the main gears were not round and were very noisy, the tail drive gears and tail case gears were also of poor quality, all these parts were replace with Align parts.

I could not track the main blades correctly due to too much flex in one of them, I put a set of Edge blades on and it was instantly perfect, proving that my setup was sound.

It took some parts and some work to make this a quality helicopter, but it's smooth as silk now.
