I'm looking to buy a Trex 500esp. Just a few questions

- Is there any problems you guys have had with them or anything i should know about?
- Are the stock Align 510 servo's good enouph for 3d?
- What battery do u think is the best?

There are no issues with the 500. The stock servos should serve you well for many flights.

Lipo choices can be a subject of debate.

Run 6S 3000 - 3300mah for sport flying, while 6S 2650 would work better for 3D. Flight times for the bigger lipos are about 6 - 8min sport flying, while the 2650 yields 4min or less of 3D.

I think I'd be ok with 4-4:30min of flight time (3ding) because rite now i only get 3:10 of hard 3d on my Furion 450.

Thumbs up 500 esp

Just got mine last week and I love it, ez build and no issues....I got the miniG and a S9254, the servo was kinda a pain to mount since its made for a smaller servo.....$475 shipped after looking for a few weeks, best deal around if you ask me.
Inethobby on ebay, he asks for like $490 but if you contact them they will sell shipped for $475 GL, and I hope you grab one....I have a 600NSP,450pro,and 450seV2 and the 500 is my fav at the moment....but that 450pro is a close 2nd place

with the turnigy 3000mah 6s 30c w/45c burst you can get 5 minutes no problem hard 3d.
