I got a chance to fly the HC 500 and the Outrage 550 over the weekend. Greg came for a visit and we setup a couple different Castle Ice setups in the Helis. The HC500 flys really well and the ratios in the head are spot on the tail has awesome authority and Greg's stiff radio was not so bad
The Outrage 550 was very cool and we got chance to run 2 different motors , the scorpion and the Neu. I think I am going to setup one of each of these helis after flying Greg's. The 550 had InoLab (sp) servos and we installed a PROBEC to make sure we could supply the hungry servos and we used the ICE 100 in SET RPM mode. The power was awesome and the heli was stable but quick at the same time.
We setup the auto-rotation mode on both helis but I will say the 550 autos the best of the 2, it just hangs very well and with the extra mass it is very easy to speed up and slow down the blades.
Thanks again Greg, i am looking forward to flying the Helis again soon.
