What about the differences with the 450? I own the 500E too and I'm thinking about a small one, spares have the same price right?

Hello helifreaks!

Here is a video I made when flying my new 500L at the local model flying field.

Did you use paint or what for the green details? I like it

The frame and fins are Fusuno. The green on the canopy was painted by me. It's fluorescent green Krylon spray paint. It really made it easy to keep orientation.

I was thinking about orientation indeed it's fiber glass, do you feel changes compared to the CF frame?

I'll buy one unpainted fusuno canopy and I want to paint it (I need to find the right paint) or just apply stickers but I'll definitely check the krylon spray paint

The frame by itself is definitely not as stiff as CF, but when assembled I cannot tell any difference. It flies well, and crashes well too. Plus, it only cost me $12.50 for both halves, so, you know, I couldn't pass it up.

This is my rex, it's pretty much all stock, I just replace the align's plastic tail with the metal tail from hobbyking (I didn't trust it but it's working until now) and it's more stable now, no tail wag anymore, the belt seems more rigid and I want to try the hk's belt to see if it's good or scam.

stock or not, more than I fly more than I like this 500

With slight modifications, the 500pro canopy fits

Can't wait to fly and check visability

That looks sick. What did you have to modify on canopy?

I had to remove about a 1/2" of material to make it fit properly in the lower slot. I used a dremel with a cutting wheel. Scissors on fiberglass will crack easily, you're better off grinding.

I'm also using the RC booya mounts. I am not using lower standoff supports and it's VERY secure.

At the very bottem, it used to extend about another 1/2" towards the right. I just removed the "tongue" that would normally be there. And it fits perfectly into the 500e "slot"
