Does anyone think there will be any scale bodies available for the Trex 500? (An MD 550E or Agusta 109 would be great!)

After seeing the new 500 in person for the first time this weekend, I hope so...

The thing is absolutely ballistic as a 3D ship, so should have no problem with the weight of a fuse and some detailing. The size will make it more stable than the 450, and allow pretty good detailing...

I bought a 600E this winter just for a scale heli project. They are going pretty cheap since the 500 came out and It's actually a great platform for scale I think.. I bet you could get a 500 in a 50 size fuselage with a longer boom and belt... Someone will have to be the first to try it...

The 500 is a fair bit smaller than even a 30 size (425 blades), so I don't think you could run it in a 50 fuse...

The 600 is a great setup for 50 size. In fact I'm working on stretching the 600 mechs for a 60 size Jet Ranger.

That is what I was think of doing with my 600 I would like to get it in a 60 size fuselage. I'm going to fly it as a pod and boom this summer to work out the bugs and setup for a scal heli then next fall I'll get into doing a scale Jet ranger maybe with it...
I have it set up for 3D right now but I'm never going to be any good at it and I really don't like crashing/repairing like the 3D guys do.. It's all scale flying for me..
