Thumbs up First flight with E500 after battery mod - video

Well finished the battery mod on the E500 and it really helped a lot with forward flight and the stalls coming off the elevator in forward flight. Heli is well balanced now as well. No longer tail heavy as before. Made a big difference and now I just have to find the sweet spot on the throttle. Due to design the 500's are much more touchy than the Big Lama. Another battery pack or two and it'll be flying like my Big Lama. The 500's by design (canopy etc) are much more touchy and susceptible to wind than the Big lama's. Video is in HD 9720p) and best viewed in YouTube. For more info on the E500 battery mod visit the Photo section of our Facebook page at
