I just ordered a 3DX 500 SA v2, being a pretty wicked 3D heli pilot I wanted to get the most out of this helicopter.. The first thing on my list to buy is the new v2 CNC Main hub, Then CNC Blade grips.. Ill be looking around the forms for them if anyone is selling them...Ill be keeping everyone updated with pictures along the way... originally I was going the get the SE but i hated the frame design so i went with the SA.. Here is the following setup information.. The heli should be here Friday or Saturday and monday at the latest... I cant wait....

3DX 500 SA
425 mm CF Blades
3DX 850 Kv Motor
24 T pinion
HobbyWing 60 Amp esc (Switching to Align 60 AMP)
Maxwell DS 260 High speed, High Torque MG (cyclic)
Futaba GY 401 (Hopefuly Gy 601)
2 Kong Power 2200's In series 6 Cell

Ill keep you updated with pics as i go along..

The stock motor and esc is not up to 6s. Certainly not on 24 tooth either.

For the love of the hobby

If you use the new 130T main gear there is no stripping problems, the bird is insane with the new head parts, lighter paddles. I have gone a step further and put a longer boom, changed the tail ratio and put 463's on it. What a Hoss with some Flightpower 6s 2500's! You get 4 minutes of pure joy with the Z-power 20.

I hope to see the new belt drive pulley as a standard part of the kit, adding the extra 10T made a huge difference along with using a full size servo for the tail.

Enjoy!

I told you it was the future........

ok well, I flew it and got everything dialed in.. Im switching to a JR 770/3400 G for the gyro adn tail servo... 6 cell li-po is balistic and i dont want to even dare to fly it.. I turned my Trottle curves wayyyy down so i could see how it is.. I think my best bet is going to be 4 cell... I had my idel 2 set at 50% TC all the way across and i had plenty of power for wicked 3D..

Thats the update for now.. Video to come..

Thanks Devin
