I have a trex 450 V2 and am getting bored with it and looking at the 500's, what are your likes and dislikes about the 500? How much more of a difference are the two?

The 500 is a great heli, far more stable platform than the 450. Just get the TT drive and the Kasama tail grips. A Jazz 55 ESC would be a great addition also, if you got the $$$$.

Buy one, send it to me, let me build it. I'll go fly it and then let you know if you'll like it.

Of course it's your heli if you want to save 50.00 on your 1300.00 heli Align servos are the way to do that

I like flying the 500 a lot... dislike not owning one. I fly a really nice V2 and a 600e so have to resort to flying my friends 500s

I love my 500. Definately, the best bird in my fleet.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

I have had two TREX 500's and they are nice flying helis. They are kind of heavy but some people like the stable feel that the 500 gives you. Out of the current 500 size helis (425 blades) I think the Protos is the funnest to fly...

I have Align servos in my protos and they are working really well. Before they were in the Protos they were in my TREX500. So far I have about 70 trouble free flights on them and one crash that took out a $5 gear set...

I saw a for sale thread for an upgraded 8s 500 and am interested in that but also I would need to upgrade the charger I have to charge two packs at the same time. With the stock motor and esc can you run the 2 3s lipos from a 450? Is this good or bad to do if so?

I love my 500, but I still end up flying my 450 more often!
