I love the fuselage but not sure I could retrofit it to my 500E.

I'm sure it can be done, just don't wanna spend 100$ to find out it wont fit lol


How it's fly with the added tail weight?

A little on the heavy side but balanced, no nose or tail heavy but definetly no floater unlike the 450l was reported to be tail heavy, as 500 already known for it, also i am using heavy pack, 3300 and 3200's so it might be adding the weight, so far i like it, but im just a sport flyer i like it, its fast in forward flight, i cannot speak for 3d flight characteristic. Cheers.

Geez, I still love my old faithful flybarred TRex 500. This photo was taken last Saturday early in the morning; Note the moon in the background.

Great photograph CZorzella!

Nothing wrong with flybars!

I checked out a friend's 450 Pro this morning, which still has a flybar and KBDD Paddles-the little sucker flew great!

Here's a picture from this morning. After sitting on the shelf for a couple of months while I messed around with my 600, I finally got my 500 back in the air! New upgrades include an i2rc head, and a Spartan Vortex FBL. She's flying awesome!

Trex 500L Dominator first hover - YouTube

Edit: I was just using general flight mode but briefly switched into idle up around 0:35. I immediately freaked out since I was in a small backyard and brought it back to general.
I'll add to your back yard flying. I just finished my G500. I typically hover them in my basement first after the setup and my wife hides around the corner to video tape me in the back yard.


Really enjoying this one.
