Another glorius day of flying. I need more batteries so I can fly it more.
I've been contemplating a protos 500. Is it that much bigger than the stretched mini?

Yes it is a noticeable difference going up to the 500 from a stretched mini. 350mm to 425mm per blade may not sound like much but it is a big difference. If you think it might be too close then you can stretch the 500 to use 475mm blades as well.

OK thanks for the input. I'm saving up for later this year. The combo with motor, ESC, FBL and blades sounds like a great price.

Huge difference. Flies way bigger, and it's a super sweet machine

And th eperfect compliement to a Mini-Protos

Much better with wind, much more visible (due to larger size) - not that there is anything wrong with the Mini-P

Yep I'm getting one. Probably later this year when I save up.
The wind was pushing mine around today.

I got a chance to see a protos max today flown by an awesome pilot. Wow.

Remove the fbl, use a long hex driver

Picked one of these up from the classifieds and am really impressed with it. Doesn't do this or that well, it does everything great!

No big surprise as I have been loving the P500 but I was surprised with how stable it is for its size, hands off hover for what feels like an eternity.

Just an all around great helicopter, sounds like it can be a bit high maintenance but it's so easy to work on and I enjoy flying it so much I'd say it's worth some extra effort. Perfect compliment to the 500, that's for sure.

Sure I'll end up with a P380 sooner or later but I actually feel satisfied with my little fleet for the first time.

Why high maintenance? I would say out of all the helis I've owned the.minip need less maintenance than all of them.

I kind of agree, my stretch mini p (bought used) has been going for a couple hundred flights now, only thing I ever had fail was the old msh pinion, and I went to lynx solid pinions. I'm sure the "new" msh pinion is just as good, but came out too late for me to want to buy it.

My mini Protos has been sitting on the shelf for most of the last year. I can only remember once when I brought it out for 4 packs at a fun fly. But last week I decided to use it to check out the new Brain 2.0 firmware.

After the update I've been out a couple of times with the heli and it is flying well. Rescue works great, overall feel is good, and it felt ok to be flying the smaller heli.

I'm partly trying to decide if I will get a P380 or not. I put the mini Protos away after my local park was remodelled and I decided that I would only park fly my 180 size helis in the future, and I normally only do that if I take it with me when I am overseas.

I'm still not convinced that I will fly the P380 enough to get one yet. No rush though, I still have my 766 under construction and need to rebuild my E5s after its last crash and do a maintenance rebuild on my night flyer so there is plenty to do.

Dusted mine off after having flown nothing at all this year. 9.5 minutes of drifting around the front yard at 2200 rpm is a wonderful nerve tonic.

I just dusted mine off, but found I have a dead servo, and a few other issues. I might get her flying this week?

Ha yup I have been getting that in alot of the threads I post in! Guess I should said goodbye! LOL

Well I changed the servo, and test flew, the tail servo was shot too, so I added a TGY306G, it was all I had, flew 4 flights, the mini P is still a sweetie!

I see now there a many lower KV 6S motors out now, I would like to try one with a taller pinion and see if the OWB issue could be resolved that way!

Welcome back man

I don't think you'll be able to use any of the new motors (made for G380) on a mini protos though, since the shafts are 5mm
