Bought a second hand 500 and it is not smooth at all. I have a raptor 50 that I fly and a blade 4 hundred that hover very well..but the 500 is all over in a hover..r they like this. I suspect the stack up thought the blade grips is not correct....it is not vibrating and track looks good but it doesn't want to stay in one place at all....any suggestions...I'm thinking of looking for a stock head..it has a metal one and I can't verify hardware in it cause I don't know what kind it is...thx

I just noticed this question. I have both the Blade 500 3D (flybar) and Blade 500 X (flybarless). Both fly extremely well and are my "go to" helis if I just want to throw something up in the air. A couple of things for you to try:

1. Verify that your control linkage is in good shape with no slop/play.

2. Make sure that all bolts on the head are properly tightened.

3. Are your head dampers in good shape?

4. Make sure that your spindle (feathering shaft) is straight. A bent spindle will cause all sorts of flight issues.

5. Are your servos in good shape.

6. Use some expo on your airleron and elevator settings. 10% in normal and 20% in idle/stunt might be good starting points.

No heli stays in one place all by itself. But you can certainly tame down how it responds to corrections/control inputs. It sounds like your heli is overly touchy. Correcting that issue will be a combination of mechanical and radio setup.
