hi can anyone help. I built this heli with SK3 helidrive motor T500-1600kv Using 2 x 2200ma batteries in parallel the heli wont lift off. Do I need to have these in series config. and will i need to reset ESC? Thanks for any help

You need to have them in series config. Now you have 11,1v instead of 22,2v if you use 3s batteries.

What's the situation on the boom length? It seems too long and I think I have seen this discussed. Do I need to cut it down and if so where?
 abdulahad100 380 points
Yes you have to cut about 5mm of the tail. But be careful that you don't cut the tail from the side with the groove. Cut the tail from the other side.

3 thumbs up!
Kit is of decent quality compared to the price. Make sure you take apart the main head and tail and apply thread lock as there was hardly any thread lock on the metal parts. Also make sure you apply grease on the main and tail thrust bearings as there was not a single drop of grease on them and they will fail only after a few flights due to friction. I replaced the following parts with Align parts Main,tail,feathering shaft,tail belt.

Got mine last week, all parts from good quality, but check all screws and add threadlock, if this is not done (like mine). Yesterday the heli was airborne, I am glad, super performance, verry exact in flight, best you can get for this price!

yep! i got one .. its ok really, but forgett the carbon boom! its very flexible and causes the tail to vibrate. on first flight the tail box unscrewed it self, dropping the tail fin, no locktight on the tail so checked head, little to none either ! dry thrust bearings head & tail, screws are cheap and snap if you give em some ! canopy is poor, still some plastics that need upgrading, customs had me for 15 duty but overall ok for the money av fun

Just recieved my 3rd 500 kit to use as spares. When are HK going to get the lenght of the boom and the tail push rod correct. I bought first kit with this problem in December 2010!! 4 months latter same thing. Cutting down the boom is straight forward enough but the push rod being to long is a pain, where do you get correct lengh pushrods?? Great kit otherwise, I've had no problem with tail rotors or anything else. Would give 5 stars if not for boom and push rod issue.
