Unfortunately, we have a recall on the SOME tail grips of the 500X and 500 3d.. There are two styles that have been used in production, we are ONLY recalling ONE of those types. Please read this recall bulletin carefully.

Thanks for that Brian. Lucky I upgraded to Blade metal tail grips and other metal tail bits early on, lol!

Any similar problems with the Blade 500 3D?

Cheers,

nope. The 500 3d was produced before the 500x, no problems there.

Edit: The recall includes all of the 500 3d and 500x models with the grip type shown in the recall bulletin.

I'm afraid the information regarding the Blade 500 3D above is incorrect. The recall bulletin states that the 500 X, 500 3D BNF, and 500 3D RTF, are all included in the recall.

I received my 500 3D BNF yesterday, and mine has the recalled tail grips (note that the tail blade bolt is not centered).

Everyone with any version of the Blade 500 should check their tail rotor grips!
