Default Awesome Trex 500L

I have a great recipe for a Trex 500L. I test flew it today and love it!!! I did do one modification and that was to make room for a 13T pinion. This gives me a governed head speed of 2850 in idle up 2. I was liking the setup before, but power felt a little lacking. It is fantastic and loving it now. On a side note, I am not sure why they did not set it up for a 13T pinion. The 12T is definitely underrated in a governed mode.

Looks like an awesome setup! It really is an awesome heli, and very capable. The KBDD main blades have a lot of bite and work great on this model.

I was actually pleasantly surprised by the KBDD blades. I was trying to buy a set of Rail blades, but were sold out everywhere. So I came across these for a great price and they fly great on the 500. I have a set of KBDD blades that I won at a fun fly from my 700, but I haven't tried them yet.

I could govern it a bit higher, but at 2850, it really rocks. As for blades, I typically use Rails, but they were out of stock everywhere. I am pleasantly surprised by these blades.
