Anybody know why Align started using the 500M on the Trex 500 kits? Was there any issues with the 500L motor?

Burned!

I've burned two L motors!! Since new both of them were to hot to take another flight immediately. Since then I’ve tried Typhoon 500 (spins to fast) and Scorpion, and couldn’t beak either of them.

I’m sure the L has an heat dissipation issue…..

I have no issues with my L motor, and am very happy with the power. As much as anything I think they wanted to have all their motors the same type of chrome endbell out runner.

I do agree the 450M and 600M have more power than their previous motors.

Align 500L:
●Max output power:650W/800W(30sec)
●KV value:1600KV
●Dimension: spindle 5x36x61.1mm
●Weight: 200g (prox.)

500M:
●Max output power:1260W/1470W(30sec)
●KV value:1600KV
●Dimension: spindle 5x36x61.1mm
●Weight: 205g (prox.)

I would say its a bit more than just a shinny cover.... Twice the output/power. I don't own the 500M but I have flown my friends dozens of times and its way way better than the 500L. Im not saying the 500L doesn't work because it does, just not as good for 3D flight IMO. I ended up getting the scorpion 3026 1600kv instead of the 500M because the price is actually lower on the scorpions. The scorpion and the 500M are rated almost the same but the scorpion feels much more powerful to me. I have flown the two back to back several times and IMO you cant go wrong with either, but for a few less bucks the scorpion isn't just cheaper, but better performing... Now everyone don't get bent-out of shape this is just me and my opinion and flying style. Just like the hobbycity/high-end lipo argument.....

Nothing wrong with expressing your opinion, it's good to know. Some day I may just get a different motor for the 500....

I do have my 650L laying around... I wonder if i could get the right gearing... Nah... 550...
