Well I put the new 500 in the air today for the first couple of flights. It flys VERY well. I'm impressed with the performance, the power, the feel....its not all HYPE fyi it really does perform well.

9650s on cyclic
401 9254 combo
stock everything (except tail box)
would like to try some more efficent blades but that will come.
align 2500 6s pack on 13 tooth.

Well right now I have the GF align blades. I'd like to try the CF align blades and a few others as they become avail. Hopefully a boat load of blades from align will be soon as it seems no one has them in stock.
What are the rest of you guys running for blades?

I have the stock CF.

I've not experimented with blades.

Not a 3D guy.

I don`t fly the Trex500 but I do fly a 500 size heli(EP8 Expert; QoJ) and the best blades that I have tried are the MAH 425mm tapered carbon fiber, the next best are the MAH 425mm regular .. I have tried a number of blades , but the MAH are the best by far...
I can`t seem to find the MAH 425mm tapered any more , nobody carries them any more...

I am using the align blades and they work very well, I do hard 3D. my only complaint is that 2x3s packs does not work well. I toasted a tp 2200 extreme on the 500, but the other pack was fine. I cant wait to get a 6s charger and a 6s batt. I had decided on the FP 2500 25c but I read on the freak that the aligns are just as good and much cheaper.

700N 91HZ/SB-20 690V2 V's

Be carful charging your lipo on the heli like that! If it flames, you have limited time to save your heli/electronics.
