I have always loved the 500 and have thought many times about building one. The method I told you that I use will at least give you an idea of how much time you've got before the lift gives out. I have always used that method and it works for me.Take care of that 500 !

In the event of a power failure, scale models can always successfully auto rotate to the crash site, no matter who is piloting the model. Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Thats not too funny if its your bird that splats. I am sure that all scale ships won't make it down safely without some damage,BUT,a lot of them will in capable hands.I never dreamed my 34 lb ship would auto worth a crap,but it sure did and one of the hundreds of autos I did was a true life saving auto that saved it from damage.WP

autorotate
autorotated a bo105 scale graupner model once, with full offshore scale kit details, the lot, no I did not choose to do it, the layshaft became problematic due to a seized bearing and engine began screaming with no lift to rotors, gladly did it successfully after previous practices at same in the fullsize.

If done right you can autorotate almost any scaler. I don't practice autos with all 0f mine but making sure they are at least set up to do a decent auto if the need arises sure has paid off in the past. Some sclers turnout too heavy to perform a show stopping auto but may do one to minimize damage which is a good thing.
I do however occasionally build a scaler with autos in mind and here my 600 size longranger while a little heavy, does well. 660m mm blades and a non driven tail makes the fun unstoppable especially the 180 degree autos.

I've successfully auto'd my 50lb Ch-53 once ( when tail rotor left on its own) and unsuccessfully twice ( when a link failed, and the latest, when the Turbine shut down ) none were planned.. but all were doable...
As Emile stated, be sure to set it up so it is "possible". ..?cuz you never know.?
