It just keeps getting better.
Hasn't cutout again, many flights now. Seems to like the scorpion ESC.

Compare 2320 to 1785 calculations on 12's comparing the 520 to the hacker 400.

So I tried my smaller 3700 6's x 2 for close to a lb lighter. 12 minutes flight time includes a few autos at the end.

I also tried my 10s 4400's and calculate 1500 at 37 and get over 10 minutes there!

Both packs don't complain like they used to when I'd load it up. Packs come down cool.

It's like downshifting to an easier gear. Couldn't even fly the 3700's before. The voltage would drop when loaded. - shoot forgot to see what the amp draw is.... Having too much fun.

So nice to fly 716's at that speed and weight. Tail holds just fine for me still at those speeds and my style. And if I want I can spool it up to 1700/1750.
With 14 degrees pitch it rockets....

It's crazy how much 50% or more flight time per pack helps you get in tune and get past what may have been a pickle before.

Sounds like you are having fun with it.

You can run 716 mm main blades on the Logo 600 SE ? I thought maximum 696 mm.

Steve, what size tail blades are you running on your E700?

105's or 106 I think. I measured the distance and it totals up to the total of the blades. So yeah not much room for error.
I don't fly really aggressive and have flown it for over a year without them touching.....yet.

Several years back I ran my Synergy E5 as a super stretch for two seasons, this past weekend I flew one again. I just came across this thread and think it's time to try the Logo as a super stretch. Lots of good info in this thread, thanks!
I've ran low headspeed for several years (currently my Protos 700 is 1275hs). Will be nice to have a super lite LHS bird again.

After reading this thread, I realize I need to put my Logo 690sx back on the build table and finish it up!

Thanks

Get that thing back together for sure. Great for a light platform for lower to medium head speed.
I put some 696 VTX on my stretch and really love how lively they feel in the air at the lower medium head speeds. The auto is different than how the rails carry as the head speed drops off, but I'm getting used to it now.

The part that really interests me is running a 6s setup which is apparently very light weight!

That is very very light, but it really depends on the motor kv and blades
.


I think I tried it with cyclones and didn't like it.. Maybe I will try again with my vtx. I'll bet its way more flyable. I think the tail performance is sub par at those rpms, but a 3 bladed tail should solve that.

Half the fun is trying trying all the different combos and setups. It's great when you find what works for you.

Any recommendations on a motor for a Logo 690sx running on 6S at 1100-1200 rpm or so?

I have a KDE 600XF 530kv motor that I could put in there that might work.

Sawacs, I would think that 530 would be about ideal for 6s.

I have been flying 6s on my 600se for years now with a 500kv/11t and it is
a very sweet flying heli. Bought it originally as a 10s machine and it has had
a LOT of 10s flights through it, but also a bunch on 6.

The only issue, for me anyway, is it is much nicer on calmer days; 6s is just
too light and loose tail in heavier winds. It still flies fine, just not that enjoyable to me.

The last 2-3 yrs, I have discovered 8s also, and to be just about ideal as a
low to mid rpm/weight/performance balance.......really like it! AND, still get
10+ minutes, about the same as 6s.

The tri tail should solve the low speed tail issues. I think it's at about 1500 the tail holds, below that it gets pretty soft.

I've done tail slides at 1500 from way up and it holds for me. Hurricanes and funnels as well, but I do them a bit slower than most .

I'd love to get the tri tail going just to see how well it works. I think it looks killer also.

I think You guys were right. I just found one ESC motor connector has been getting hot. I'll bet that's been the problem all along.
Just replaced the connector and will retest here shortly.

Edit- loose connection was the issue, new connector fixed the motor shutdown issue.
