I have a 600N LE EFL a 500 EFL, 450 pro EFL, and a 250 pro dfc.

Currently I am building a 500L for a friend. It's been a while since I built my 500 pro dfc.

When comparing the two in terms of engineering and design the newer 500L seems to have more errors.
By that I mean the thought process of assembly and maintenance.
To remove the tail boom assembly from the frame requires you to take apart the whole frame.

Then there's the subject of servos
You will need to modify the tail servo location if you use a quality servo where the motor is slightly larger than the body.
The elevator servo had to be modified to fit.
If you want to use quality electronics you will have to figure out how make them fit.
To me it seems designed to use only align electronics only.

Compared to my other builds this build has been challenging.

Are you sure you have original kit on the table?
Clone stuff are everywhere so, be careful...

According to your description, you may not have original kit...

It's a real align kit
From the time that I built 500 PRO Dfc which I converted immediately to EFL.. their design of this 500 L is very disappointing. I had to change multiple parts because of defects such as umbrella gears, tail hub was too long so the grips had over a mm of lateral play.
The main shaft required both spacers. Should have been a collar instead.

I understand now why they discontinued the 500 L just too many errors on their end.

I will overcome the obstacles it's just very sad to see what align has become

I'm nearing the end of the build and went all out on this one, It had better been worth it
I'll post some pics of the final product.

It does balance nicely with a 3000 40C turnigy
The nanotechs fit better 3000 40C
