Default Heli Professional Revolution 500E

Today i've recieved the basic combo of the new helicopter from Heli Professional:
The Revolution 500E.

This heli has 500mm main rotorblades, so it's a "real" 500.
The basic combo comes with all the electronics and carbon main blades.
The heli is almost interely done by plastic; good quality plastic, something like Mikado.

What's in the box:


the supplied ESC is a YGE 80


the main frame is a box of plastic which houses the transmission


after an hour of work

Interesting!

I have not seen this one before.

Looking forward to reading how it goes together and flies!

Hi lads
sorry for long absence..

My Revolution is at his 8th flight.
At this time i'm using 5S 4000mAh battery and the heli is quiet, predictable, precise.
I set max headspeed at about 2000rpm and that seems to me enough to enjoy the flights.

I'm still not used to ¨Rondo; is quiet simple to set, but i'm a v-bar aficionado, so the mini-blue-behaviour is my best...

However my first impression is that the heli is very stable, smooth, light.
YGE and stock Xelaris motor was not the best coupled, so i mounted a Scorpion 4020-910 that has plenty of torque, run cool (yes a Scorpion that after 8min is still at 55░C ), and match perfecly with YGE governor.

This machine is my elect heli for quiet flights, i'm enjoying the very relaxed style and low noise that the Revolution produce.

The new combo version has a Xelaris 75A ESC with a stronger BEC than YGE, so an external on isnt' needed.
