I use this combo for Bird in flight photography (BIF) and find that any TC slows it down to a point where it becomes unusable.

I find it a little slow to aquire but once it locked on it stays locked on, what are your focus settings I use 21 piont dynamic-area AF and have Focus tracking with lock-on set to short and have AFC focus priority set to focus+Release

I use the same settings as you and have found setting the Focus tracking lock-on to OFF speeds things up considerably. I do agree to a point about the 2x TC becoming unusable due to sluggish AF, but don't discount the 1.4x as being usable on the 500.
