I've done it on my 450 but haven't done it on the 500 or the 600 yet.

What's your setup for your 500? Motor? 5s/6s? Pinion? Max head speed you've tried?

If it's got the right setup, it should have about as good a power-weight ratio as a TRex 450 (maybe not as much as a 4s setup but close).

If your expecting a new heli with the mod then you will be let down. I saw minimal difference. At most I saw a little less transitional delay.

IF you want to speed up the cyclic. The run the COlored paddles they are lighter. Also. Run more Cyclic pitch. I only run 10 Degrees of swash becuase i fly smoother now. But i used to run more. I like the Lighter paddles with 10 degrees for cyclic pitch. BUt I also run 3000RPM. so if you are running less then you might want more Cyclic pitch.so in that case just max it out.

The colored paddles you get with the skidds are lighter. And before you take off the sticker. Cut off a few of the supports. I am pretty happy with mine like that.
