Align released a new frame set that has the battery mount location lower than the original frame set that JK designed some years back. If you've brought a new 500 then it would include the newer frames and you'll be able to run 3000mah packs.

If you have an older 500 then a simple mod to the frames can be made to accept the larger packs or you can purchase a set of the newer style frames from your LHS.

If yours didn't come with the lower frames it's a simple mod. Here are my frames with mod and 2 2200 4S packs installed.

I think fusuno makes a larger canopy that will fit larger batteries.

A fine tooth hack saw blade works just fine.
