I know everyone pretty much just buys Goblins these days but the Trex 500 used to be pretty much the most popular heli out there when it came out! Doesn't anyone have the new 500x?

Great! What size packs are you using? What head speed? But more importantly what's with the skids?!

Have you tachoed your HS, it's probably way too high! Should be no need for much more than 2500 on this heli.

I'm curious about this too. I thought guys would be all over this machine. Not much discussion.

The problem with me is every time I buy something they come out with a new model. I had just built a new 550L and test flew it when they came out with the 550X. I liked it so much I wanted a 500L to go with it, the next thing I saw was the 500X. I did buy a 500L so I will have to hold off getting the 500X for a little while.
When I order the 500X they will come out with a 500Z !!!! LOL
I have a friend that has both and he said the X fly's a little better because of the longer blades but the 500L is rock solid.

Yeah I know what you mean. I may try a 500X with a belt drive as a heli to push myself a little harder. I've had a couple Trex 500's in the past and always felt they were just a tad heavy for the disc hence my interest in the new one.

I also have a couple 500's and the new 500L. I even made one FBL and thought it didn't fly any better so I put the flybared head back on. I still fly it often and enjoy it.
500's are a good size and are fun to fly. I am sure there will be a 500X in my future. LOL

Another great thing about the 500X is that Align have geared it to work with a governor which means you can also run it on larger 5s packs (3500-4000) and just run a flat 90-100% throttle and you would still get 2600+rpm! This means you would get around 30% more flight time!

60% of the time, it works every time!
