Hey guys,

I sold my 500, now I wanna buy it back, doh!

sold it a month ago for $950, so at least the coin helps gets me back into one.

Looking for the lowest cost to get back into one, the ESP.

I like the 500 ESP Superior Combo w/gyro, tail servo and battery

[KX017011]

http://www.align.com.tw/shop/produc...roducts_id=3099

What's the best place to buy?

I checked HeliProz who advertises here and found the one down from the model I want, no gyro tail server or batt:

500 ESP
GrandRC has a build your own option. They don't have the new kits with the 500M motor and gp780 gyro but you can unselect the 500L and just buy the M motor and you get different gyro/servo options. You can also change your canopy if you want.
Check it out:

http://www.grandrc.com/t_rex_500

New customers get 10% off till Jan. 31.

Hey Nik,

Are you sure you don't work for them? Lol just kidding man.

Yeah I bought my 600esp off them and they were pretty good.

I emailed them Friday, no response yet let's see.

I found another place with 2 batts in the mix for US$699.

Not too shabby.

I'm going to let communication help me with this decision. If they don't answer my email I won't buy.

Thanks for help,

Helis

Since when did the 500 esp combo come with a gyro

The only ESP 500 kit Im aware of comes with motor, esc and 3 servos.

The 450 pro comes with gyro/tail servo but not the 500.

It's a new sku. Helipross calls it their "extreme" kit. It adds a gyro, servo, and battery.

Average price range is $619 to $720.

You may want to do a little more research on Helipross. Here's just one link http://helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=135907 This name has kept popping up from time to time....some seem to have good luck, but alot are not...e.i. incomplete kits, not getting everything they pay for, serial numbers removed from parts, it goes on and on.

Another http://helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=112593 Probably more if you look hard enough.

I have no personal experience with them, I just keep reading more than isolated incidents. I would not take a chance witht them no matter how good the price....that's just me.

Come on....Helipross sounds like Heliproz...may just be a coincidence....right.

I ordered a combo from HK. $699 for everything including two 6S packs, and shipping wasn't much more than I paid for my 450 Pro Zippy packs.

Thanks for the help gentlemen.
