I know first hand the AR500 has had major problems in the past, there for do not trust it at all.

My own experience with an AR500 was very good, others at our field, not so good. I used it in a glider that I speked out many times. There were issues with some of the early production batches. Hopefully the new AR600 will be a solid performer.

I have over 500 flights on both an AR500 and also the HK Orange RX..

Both are in electric aircraft and I have NEVER had an issue with either.. they both work perfectly for me..

I actually have several Parkzone aicrraft all fitted with AR500's and they never miss a beat..
