Default 500 ESP deal?

I'm looking to get a 500 ESP, and I've done a little shopping. Found a kit in Taiwan that'll run me $648 + shipping and that includes the align gyro and 620 tail servo. Should I pull the trigger?

that's a good deal for a ESP kit Align gyro and tail servo, did you go down to graves RC and see what they can do for the same Kit , Gyro and Servo? talk to Mark Graves in the heli department. if you can bring a printout of what your looking at , he may be able to get close or at least save you some time and shipping cost.

PS , I'm in Apopka too

Yea, I was down at Graves last week, it looks like it would cost me quite a bit more to get it all done down there, plus they only had one kit on the shelf at the time, not a lot of incentive to wheel and deal. Who knows, though, might give it a shot. If it wouldn't cost too much more, I'd much prefer to buy local.

Where do you fly?

You can do a live.com to get an extra 9% cash back. Very good deal for a Trex-500ESP.
