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

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.
