Hey thanks sujju for your kind words! That really helps lift up the spirit.

List of things that might have gone bad.

1)Boom
2)Tail servo gears (Damn it the new ones cost 11$ for ds 480.) will be replacing this servo with a futaba S9257.
3)Tail and main blades.
5)Flybar.
6)Few links.
7)The elevator servo gears seems rough. Need to inspect them.
Havent checked feather yet. Dosent seem bend for bare eyes. But the dampers might have gone bad.

The main gear was saved because of my "Enable break" theory. I hit the TH 1.5 to 2 sec before crash. So that would have stopped the main gear before the head hit the ground.

To bad Castle software does not allow enable brakes in governor modes(worried for my new helis).

Vinay - I am sure you realize that it is a part of life in this hobby...  I hope it happened while you were trying aileron tic-tocs ! Smiley 

If you think about it... you will realize that the ultra cheap clones are not really a good choice when it comes to beefy upgrades and heavy flying.  They are good for beginning and circuits (plus rolls loops etc), but the difference in quality does cause issues, and you end up upgrading one bit at a time.  At least that was my experience.

Very True and very well said Anwar!  Thumbs Up

Iam upgrading a host of things on my 500.

1)Main blades - tig/align
2)tail blades - align plastic - red - visibility
3)Gorilla landing gears - Yellow - visibility sturdyness
4)yellow canopy - visibility
5)Main and tail auto gears
6)tail fins to yellow - visibility
7)feathering shaft and dampers.
8)Torque tube.
9)the tail shaft
10) And the plastic links that broke today on the 450.
11)Tail balde grips and the slider.
12)KBDD paddles green.


thats quite a list isnt it Giggle? But i want to make sure that all the power transfer system is original and I get a choice of colours that i want.

I understand ur words meant its time to upgrade to all originals! A crash on a 500 is still forgiving for the HK price. 1000s fly it with only 2 parts changed. I want to give it a shot too.  Wink

I went looking for people doing "aileron tic-tocs" and more with the HK ones, not many are doing it Smiley  (at least when I checked a while earlier).

Let me be the first one to try it out  Wink I wasnt trying tic tocs yet, I was doing flips before I wanted to try tic tocs.

Here is my conclusion on my yesterday crash. Its those plastic unit on the photos that might have given way during that crash. I use the maximum cyclic aileron pitch that my swash allows. These plastic units are the ones that transfers power to the Flybars from the swash plate. This along with the No bog turnigy motor puts a lots of pressure. I will chage them to align.  I don't see any more weak links on the heli.  Head Scratching

One amazing vid for u. Its not even 500 CMT. Its the basic GT!

Still my "cheap" Indian thinking is not allowing me to think of 100% Align for 500 size.

Let me give it a shot. coz I already have purchased all the upgrades i have mentioned above.

haha, its any way toast Cheesy I dont have v2 heads anymore. The only v2 I have has a pro head now as the plastic arms in the pic above were having issues. No wonder Align changed the design in pro series.

ya, we will.
Iam regretting the HK 500 align hybrid build. no guts to push it. Have to order an upgrade part, since gears are not compatible with each other. should have listened to Sujju/Anwar earlier. Sad
