With the Blade 500 3D bound and ready,
I left the motor wires unplugged to double-check that all servos were moving in their
correct direction, as well as making sure the
swash and tail movements corresponded to my
transmitter inputs. I then moved the throttle
stick to 50% (zero pitch) and checked to make
sure the swash was level and straight. All was
perfect right out of the box from the factory.
I powered the 500 3D down and with setup
done, plugged the motor wires back in. ;e
Blade 500 3D was now ready to fly.
;e E-flite 520H brushless motor comes pre-installed and provides great sport flying and 3D
performance when coupled with the E-flite 70-amp
ESC that is installed as well.
;e Blade 500 3D’s Flybar head comes complete
