Wow, 2 1/2 yrs, hope that I don't wait that long to get my Blade 600 back up, it needs blades and it seems that they are getting hard to come by used.

Did you have to buy new batteries or have other heli's that you can borrow from?

Default batteries

I bought 4 Gens Ace 6S 5000mAh 60C for my Proboat Zelos Twin 36 inch that requires a 12S setup. They fit perfect. My original HK batteries puffed so they will not fit anymore. Anyway felt good to fly it.

Very nice to get your 550X back in the air. Someday, I will get a 550 and a 600 back in the air. For now though, I am flying a few Goblins and happy with those. As my flying gets better, I can get my Blades back in the air without as much worry about parts needed after a crash.

Happy Flying!

Steve
