Comments The 500 is a perfect model for someone who wants a compact, yet high performance machine. It can be tuned for almost any flying style. It includes thrust bearings in the tail as well as the main rotor head. It takes a 5S or 6S battery from 2500 - 3700mah. I really like this model with a 5S pack and a 15 tooth pinion. I can easily fly 7 minutes on a charge and have good power throughout the flight.
Features It available as a kit and as a Super Combo, which includes servos, esc, motor and gyro.
Upgrades None needed
