    The MD 500 series is an American family of light utility civilian and military helicopters. The MD 500 was developed from the Hughes 500, a civilian version of the US Army's OH-6A Cayuse/Loach. The successful Hughes 500/MD 500 series began life in response to a U.S. Army requirement for a Light Observation Helicopter (LOH). This is the 600 size MD-500E G-Jive Blue version.

    Most of the work is done for you. All wood work is installed. Pre-drilled holes for easy install of the landing gear. Standard 600 set up is an 1100 Kv brushless outrunner motor, 80-100 amp ESC and a 6S 22.2V 5000 mAh or higher LiPo battery.

    This fuselage can be completed in as little as 4-6 hrs and is intended for the intermediate to advanced builder. No modifications needed when using stock mechanics and stock rotor head.

    Note: As of July 2018, this is an updated version of the MD500 with a full epoxy front fuselage and separate windows.

    • Fully painted fiberglass scale fuselage
    • Magnetic cabin lock system for quick and easy access
    • Extremely detailed surface and molded panel lines
    • Use of 600 standard equipment (6S Battery, 1100Kv motor), fly with your existing parts
    • Roban MD-500E G-Jive Blue 600 body kit
    Requires:Optional:Important Information - Please Read
    Roban Scale Helicopters are intended for modelers who have advanced level building skills. Both ARF and KIT product formats require you to install your own electronics (ESC, servos, motor, etc). KIT product formats also require you to install your own helicopter mechanics. Because helicopter mechanics can vary greatly in size and shape, you may be required to modify the fuselage slightly (including cutting, drilling, etc.) to achieve a perfect fit. Roban fuselages are all handmade from fiberglass and therefore may have slight variation in tolerances between body panels, doors, or windows. These variations do not affect flight performance and can be easily adjusted by an experienced builder with proper tools. These precautions are intended for novice builders; an experienced modeler should have no issue achieving perfect results with these premiere scale helicopters kits.
