Looking at jumping into the 500 size and wanted to know if the motor, servos and esc are a good combo in the kit? Also what servo to use on the tail? I only fly FF and just starting light loops rolls ect. I already fly a 50 size and a trex 450.

I went with the ESP Kit.

A buddy and myself went with the T500ESP kit which comes with motor Esc and 3 Align 510 cyclic servos. I picked up an Align 520 servo for a tail servo to use. If it's not good enough I will get a FUT9257 instead for the tail.

Oh No Someone Please Stop Me Before I Go Broke With This Heli Thing!!

That's what I was looking as well. I just wasn't sure the Align servos ect were like the servos that the Blade 400 had. Great heli but not so good servos. The price seems right also. Thanks for the input.

The cyclics are good as are the motor and ESC. Note that Align has just released a "M" motor, a true out runner like the 450 Pro just got.

I have a Futaba GY520 gyro and 9257 servo on mine. Works really nice.

Sounds good. Looking forward to getting the 500. I did see that new motor, is it in the kits now?

You will like the electronics in the esp kit. The servos center great and the motor and speedo work great also. I think the esp kit is the best value for the buck. I used a 9257 off my v2 for the tale.

Got to have my cup of heli in the morning.

I ordered an ESP kit about a week before Christmas, and it had the "L" motor in it. My guess is it'll be hit or miss for awhile, until all the old stock kits are gone.

KC, there's no confusion, you get the new motor or the old. I do have to admit though I was confused whrn I got th M motor in my 450pro kit, I had not seen anything at all about a new motor for the pro but they were showing the M motor with the sport kit. I though I had gotten the wrong motor "accidentally".

The 450pro motor was swapped out for the M because the original motors were over heating.

I like the old motor in my 500ESP, I wonder how the new one will do. I wonder why they switched, I haven't heard of any issues with the black ESP motor.
