I had a bad push rod in my kit. Emailed Mikado service, and he sent me two replacements, and one of those was useless too. The other, while still not threaded perfectly, was usable so I could fly it.

I did inform them there must have been a problem with the push rods, and he was going to investigate further.

The replacement blade bolts I got were the shorter ones. 28mm Vs the 32mm stated in the manual and shipped in my kit, so it looks like they fixed that before you got yours.

How long are your packs?
Logo balances good with 3300-3800 usually. Packs 130-140mm long are best.
The 160mm ones are petty forward and hanging out in the wind.

Mine is also nose heavy with 3300s.

I am running an Align 750MX, though the weight is supposed to be a few grams less than a Scorpion 4035 450kv (supplied with older SX kits). I'm also running a Jive 120HV, which is 140g Vs 84g for the 80A version. They're what I had from my E700 and wasn't going to buy new for this model.

Behind the main shaft, I have an optipower ultraguard right behind the batteries which should offset some of it, but I think I'll have to add some tail weight.

I forgot, on mine I'm running the speedx tail, so theres the weight that helps mine balance perfect.

4525-370 is a 14S motor. You won't be able to get all of it's power at 12S.

I have 4035-560 with 11T pinion in 600SX and am very happy. That's a great motor for 12S. More power than I can use (Mikado recomends this motor for 10S, but motor itself is 12S capable).

Would be news to me, the 690 is definitely not a 14S heli.

690SX is 12S heli, but the 4525-370kv motor is 14S motor.
