Default Logo 14 build videos will be here

OK so here is the place the Logo 14 build videos will be!

This will include all build vids, later upgrades, test flying vids, etc!

I am jumping around a bit in the manual for video reasons and build reasons.

VIDEO ->Installing servos - S9650's (70 Megs)

Swash Plate and Washout. Note: make sure your washout is NOT too tight on the main shaft!

Hello Bob

if I may ask you this question here ...

I want buy a good size electric heli. but I can't make up my mind. there are two choices that looks really good. one is the logo 10 and the other is T-rex 600CF.
The lepton is also a very choice but the price is the high side. (by the way , I watched your video build on lepton. and learn a lot , thanks )

also, is logo 14 setup similar to logo 10 ?

I am beginner, I have been practicing on G3 for past 4 months , I think I am ready for the real thing.

cheers

This is great Bob Almost makes me want to tear mine appart and build it up again... Very good idea making sure that all the cross sections are electrcally connected to each other.

Eric, the Trex 600 and Logo 14 is "50-size" helis and they are running 580-600 mm blades. The Logo 10 is a "30-size" helicopter running 500 mm blades. Other than that the Logo 14 and Trex 600 has a driven tail (tail spins when you cut the motor) and the Logo 10 does not have a driven tail.

Another difference between the Trex 600 and the Logos is that the trex uses full size servos on cyclic/pitch while the Logos uses smaller servos. The trex 600 and Logo 14 can be flown on 6S lipos and the Logo 10 can be flown on 4S lipos.

All of them are great helis, but personally I prefer the Logos

Lorents, I will have the frame parts 1 and 2 up tonight and watch and see how I got things connected

Honestly my experience with lockouts and carbon frames I think this is important to do!

Nice!

Seems that the link to the second frame video points to the first one. Should probably be:

Hi Eric,

I have only set up mine for 3D flying so I might not be the best to ask, but if you post the question in the Logo section of this forum you will probably get some good answers

Good idea installing the open end on the thrust bearing ball cage facing up... never thought about that. And on the main grips the opening should point inwards...

On my L14 I had to use both of the shims above the main gear to keep them from rubbing against the frame. No need to use two if it dont rub I guess.

Same for me regarding the washers, main gear rubbed the frame, so I used two washers above the maingear.
