I just got my new rtf esky e-500 and a day lator my brother came around. So i tried to show of... oh boy what a disaster. with my bro telling me to fly here and there and with all my confidence i lost controlled when i tried to fly with nose in. wam bang thank you man i broke all my blades. so now i have bought new blades and is back to doing baby steps. Rule one i have learned is to NOT to listen to others and ones confidence until you are in full control. Happy flying and to better days.

That is dead right Romanvk,

Never show off to others and always stay very close to YOUR comfort zone. Cool

Tom.

ok now that i put on my new blades, it flies awfull Sad the person in the hobby store sold me extreme lama blades for my esky e-500. i now now have to use the whole area of the aliron stick to get my chopter to go where i want it to go and the same with the throttle stick. its just not the same. i use to just touch the sticks, now i have to use a whole lot more of the sticks to get a response. my trim for fort & revs is set to full max (top). my old chipped blades fly better than the new :-! any ideas are more than welcome.

Check with the place were you got your 500 and get the correct main blades. that's real important. Also check Xheli.com for replacement parts. I would not use a blade other than what the manufacture identfied for the heli.

You may have other damage also. In fact you probably do.

i would think a coax heli can benefit from blade balancing the same as a single rotor heli but if its flying ok i wouldn't worry about it. maybe the blades are so light it makes little difference
Cool

Hi Romanvk,

This is my Co-Ax blade balancing system. Works well for me:


Hope it helps some.

Looks like a good system for balancing, what about a headless nail into a hole in you carry case (great for when you're away from home and need some quick adjustments)
But I would definitely put something in the shot glasses...scotch helps one thru those frustrating times. Smile

I did not say HOW they were to be made empty Derekby, but there have been lots of suggestions.


DON'T FLY AFTERWARDS. Very important, I was never allowed alcohol for the 24hrs before a flight.
