Default Trex 500 ESP airframe with Mikado FBL head, lots of spares, and case

Decided to sell my Trex 500 and step up to a larger heli (Compass 6HV.)

This airframe has about 500 flights on it total but you wouldn't know by looking at it. About 60 flights ago I went through the entire heli and replaced end links and pivot balls as needed , checked all the bearings bearings and repacked all bearings using "The Greaser." The airframe is in great shape.

The heli is a mish-mash of early and later ESP parts, so to clarify here is the current airframe configuration:

Align G-10 frames with lowered battery tray
K2 Heli front & rear frame stiffeners
Full metal head with Mikado FBL head conversion (much better mechanical resolution than Align FBL head)
Plastic main bearing blocks
KDE motor mount
Torque tube tail
ESP Metal tail grips with Heim Joint's Chinese weights
Aluminum boom strut clamp
Aluminum tail servo mount clamps
Full size graphite tail servo plate (graphite plate for mini-servo also included)
RDLohr extended gyro/receiver tray
Radix 72mm cosflaw tailblades

The Fusuno canopy included was involved in a light crash about 100 flights ago and has some missing paint. It's still structurally OK but isn't cosmetically perfect and has some paint missing on the windscreen and left side.

Spare parts inventory includes:
1x Trueblood swash leveling tool
1x main thrust bearing kit
2x MS Heli main bearings (they go longer before getting sloppy compared to the Align main bearings)
1x Kasama thrusted main bearing block set
1x bottom frame plastic kit (bottom, battery tray, gyro tray)
2x rear TT gear set
1x front TT gear set
1x autorotation gear
2x frame hardware packages
1x mainshaft
1x feathering spindle
1x autorotation hub sleeve
1 package tailbooms (2x booms, 1x control rod)
1pr tail boom struts
1x spare main head block
2 packs of gray head dampers
2 packs of Trueblood green dampers
Several packs of canopy grommets
Several packs of spare links, rod ends, and pivot balls
1x tail hub assembly with plastic blade grips
1x spare Mikado FBL conversion swash driver
16T pinion
17T pinion

Asking $300 including shipping & paypal for the airframe and spare parts lot. PM me if interested.

See my classified listings for other Trex 500 related parts such as JR 3517MG servos, a Neu 1706/1.5Y motor, and 2 additional canopies.





Also available is a carrying case. This is a Plano bow case that I built a custom foam insert for. The insert will hold the heli, 6 battery packs, 1 cutout for tools or miscellaneous parts or a 7th pack, and the TX cutout has been tested to fit a DX7 and DX8. The case is optional and will add quite a bit of shipping charges so keep that in mind.

If you just want to buy the case keep in mind this case is cut for an FBL Trex 500 and the foam cutout WILL NOT FIT A FLYBARRED HELI.

I'll sell case for $45 but I'll have to know your ship-to zip code to figure out the shipping charges. It will probably be $35+ in shipping charges simply because of the size of the case (44 x 20 x 10, so "dimensional weight" charges apply.) If you are interested in the case please PM me with your ship-to zip code so I can provide an accurate price including shipping.
