Can anyone recommend a good one along with the electronics required?
I'm thinking quad.
Your flight experience with multi blade head on the 500 would also be appreciated

Century makes real nice multi rotor heads. If it’s for scale you may not need any electronics if you are a real proficient pilot. Most that want more stability for scale use the SK360 – its designed for and has extensive testing with multi-rotor helicopters. Now that the SK720 is out you may find a good real on a good used SK360.

Century definitely has the best multi-rotor heads but they are expensive. They even have multi-rotor tail rotors. http://centuryheli.com/products/rot...l?currentid=199

What are you building?

I'm not really building anything fancy, it's just on the "because I can basis". I just want to try it for the heck of it

One thing that most non-aerodynamic types usually don’t realize is that more blades decrease aerodynamic efficiency. The reason full size helicopters use multi blades is to get more load caring capacity while keeping the helicopter smaller. That’s not the case with models because we can just crank up the headspeed when we want more power.

I have seen a few flyers disappointed that they spent a lot of money and now get less flight time.
