Im just haveing my guy solder the Deans onto my esc and pack`s, so Im hopeing to maiden this 500e later today, just wondering what to expect after flying the 600e size for so long now.

Ive flown the 500e on Pheonix but other than that ive never even seen one other than this one before.

Any thing I should be ready for?

How likely is it Im gonna crash do you think??

I have the gyro sensor in my gear channel and have my gain set in the atv values at 70%.

Does this sound about right to start of with?

My T/curves for the moment are :
Normal 0 45 80 inh 100, idle 1 90 90 90 90 90, idle2 100 100 100 100 100.

12 deg both ways.

I would say that the odds you are going to crash are exactly the same with the 500e as they were when you were flying the 600e.

I am a Heli addict!!!

Ha! - I did the same thing on my 450 - Brand new heli - Carbon blades demolished before it ever even got off the ground

I just received my new 500 yesterday and have it built just down to the nitty gritty of setting it up now

Thanks for reminding me - I'm going to try not to make that same mistake on first spool up again

Have to rebuild the whole head, got all the parts and new blades but
just realised one of the bearings inside the mixing lever is shreaded so its back to square one.
Ive just put it all in a pile, have to wait 2 weeks to get paid again now.
