Default question

im thinking about selling my 8s 600 esp cause i miss nitro but i dont want to buy gas for a trex 600... had a question for yall... how long of a hard 3d flight o you get with a 500 nitro? and how many tanks of gas do you get out of a gallon? i wouldnt mind paying that much for a conversion kit if i could get 6-7 min flights and get more than 10 flights from a gallon... that would be worth it to me

i read that the tank that comes with it is 6oz so if i put a 2oz header i would be getting 16-20 flights per gallon so what are the flight times with these bad boys... so far its looking nice

I get about 4:30 to 5 min with a align gov on and with the 6oz main+2oz header. Fly time isn't great, but I like to the 500 nitro because it is cheap to maintain. All of the electronics is a tight fit and took alittle time to get it all in there and tucked away neatly. The OS 37 is nice... I haven't put too much time into tuning it but it still puts out a decent amount of power. I have +/- 12 to 13 degrees on the collective. It bogs, but recovers pretty fast.

Let me know if you have any other questions
