What changed? Added the power bus? Wiring looks good. Mine looks terrible, comparing.

Nice Ah Clem

Got my Protos 500 on the bench after a big crash awhile back. Being converted to a full XLPower 480 now. Only original P500 parts are the motor, esc and a few tail pieces. Once I use up my stash of Protos 15t pinions I'll probably switch to the new motor and a new esc.

Did the first flights on my Oxy 5 after converting it over to VBar. Really happy with it for the first time since I built it two years ago.

Jim,
Let me know if you need any canopies or parts. I keep my protos as a nice memory. I don't think I'll use most of the 900 lbs of parts.
Don't preemptively buy spare heli parts guys (2 min 2 sec)

Rod, just so you know you can still get main grips for your Protos. Both the original style with the breakable links and the new XL redesigned ones. Keep that nice old bird in the air.

I know! I saw they now made updated ones! Whoo hoo.

I never fly her anymore. I did a full rebuild and she is kind of a show piece now. I will take her out once in a blue moon.

I still have think it's such a neat and original design with the single belt.
Very cool.

Started building the Oxy 5 HF 625. Once again I am documenting this build... basically appending to my old Oxy 5 HF 560 build thread at the Oxy forums.

Just finished a complete overhaul on my Oxy 3.
New motor, new ESC, new FBL (VBar), and new batteries (from 4s to 3s).
