Anyone running a good adjustable lipo monitor on their 500's? I use the timer on the radio but I'm finding I have anywhere from 20-30% left when I land, it would be nice to always use the 80%.

Even just a couple extra seconds is worth it when you get 4 minute flight times.

It's better for your lipos to stay on the conservative side.

I've made my own lipo guard, have a look at this thread.
http://www.runryder.com/helicopter/t456473p1/

I have one fitted to my 450 and have noticed the flight time drop from 6 mins down to about 4.5 mins now I've started pushing the heli a bit harder

My brother and a few others have the 500 version fitted to their helis, never misses a beat and gives you really good judgment of your battery % used

Their is my sales pitch anyway drop me a pm if you would like one - here is link to the manual, it's also listed in the classifieds under my account
