Default Two MD500 Coaxial Helis (RTF) from Hobby Lobby

$75 shipped each - (2) Ready-to-Fly MD500 Helis from Hobby Lobby. Bought these for Dad and I to fly and we had some fun doing short circuits around our warehouse downstairs and my backyard, but we're just not heli guys, really. We went with these because of the scale looks and the larger size than the Blade CX-series helis. Includes everything in original package except for a couple of the spare blades that we ended up using. Couldn't find a product page for them since Hobby Lobby stopped selling them last year, but here's the product video from Hobby Lobby:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgdeWX7CHvU

Here are the specs Hobby Lobby has listed for this heli on the YouTube page for the above video:

17-3/4" main rotor diameter, 16-1/2" long, 9-7/8" tall, 14-1/2 oz. flying weight. Almost 25% larger than the Co-Co Lama, with greater stability. The larger size makes the MD500 easier to fly, either indoors or outdoors. The helicopter is able to withstand a bit more wind and is capable of forward flight, which is good for learning the skills necessary to move up to a collective pitch helicopter. Powered with two 370 series brushed motors, the helicopter has plenty of power. The 2 cell lipo battery will give you approximately 10 minutes of flight time. Everything that is required (less the 8-AA transmitter batteries) is included. Since there is no assembly, all you need to do is charge the flight battery with the included lithium safety charger, install 8-AA cells in the 4-channel 72 MHz transmitter, and you are ready to fly. MD-500 includes extensive use of ball link connections for superior control. Includes spare set of main rotor blades (Note from Dave: I don't have a full set of spare blades for these). The mixing board with gyro and speed controls is separate from the 6-channel 72 MHz radio receiver. This gives you the option of changing radios with no additional modifications, or using the radio and receiver in a future project. The flight battery compartment is easily accessed and changing the flight battery takes only a few seconds. Durable, easy to fly, and ready built.
Will ship double-boxed with helis in their original boxes.

I took some pictures next to a Blade CX2 for size comparison. As you can see, the MD500 has much larger rotors than the Blade.

Will also trade for scale EDF's and warbirds.

- Dave
