Kits in production = music to my ears. 

Soon I will be doing the happy dance.  I still need servos. 
I have a couple of people checking with their contacts at Xpert
To verify the MI-3301HV M2 will fit.  I have my fingers crossed.
Servo Plan B is to use a set of BK servos.

lol ROG.
I have all except airframe and flightpack.
Will be interested to hear how you go with the Xperts on cyclic, they should be great if they fit.

The MI-3301HV M2 is not a direct fit for the 516, Rob said that you need ~42.5mm of hole spacing and the Xpert Mini servos are a bit too small, they will need some sort of adapter.
Shannon at OnlyFineHelis told me that he is working on one and it will make it available very soon after the 516 is released.

Thanks codepox.  👍🏻👍🏻 I am aware of the slight differential.  I have a set of BK servos I can use to get it flying while I work on an adapter. 

I am so looking forward to this build.  I have a kit on reserve.

The 516 prototypes fly great with the Scorpion. Any particular reason you're thinking of getting the Xnova?

Fair enough reason
I have a scorp 4035-560 in my E5s and its great. Just runs warm as scorpions seem to do.
Xnova 4530-500 in the 766 is excellent too. For the 516 I  just decided to go for the extra power from the outset so I'm not wondering what it'd be like in 6mths time.
