JWhitcare was in the area on business this weekend,so I met him at Lars'(norseman) house for some flyin today.My camera batts crapped out after just a few pics,but Lars got some good ones,which I'm sure he'll post here later.Got a few flights on the Atom,and a few flights on the 50.but we fine tuned the Spartan a bit with the usb connection.its dialed in nice now

also got to fly the 520 for the first time, and without touching the gyro after initial set up,it was AWESOME.held the tail like a rock and was Smooth.Its hard to get it set exactly in windy conditions,so i'll do that next time.but my first impression is very very good

That looks like a great area with great weather!

So Nors's has some acreage I see.

The only thing I don't like is that I wasn't there.

That is awesome that you guys had the opportunity to meet and fly. Very nice helis. Fender, that Atom is beautiful!

You may remember, last winter Triple B was in the Indianapolis area on business and we got to meet up at an indoor fly-in here in the Indy area. We had a great time. I also travel some on business. It would be nice to meet and fly with more of you guys .

The EXI 500 is only 8 dollars more and is shipped from USA (if it ever gets back in stock at Xheli). It also has more metal in the head.

I want one by next summer.

A soul in tension is learning to fly

HK 500 is metal frame and plastic tail.
That more compares to the "plastic EXI 500".
The HK500 people are complaining cause the HK 500 comes with regular bearings and not thrust bearings in the tail and they are getting heavy resistance at full RPM.

I think it's worth it to get the EXI 500 CF eddition over the plastic version myself.

We have good threads over on RCgroups on both the EXI 500 as well as HK500
