Default What is the best 3d heli kit out there for running a 6s 5000mah

What is the best heli kit out there for running a 6s 5000mah?

When I ask this I also want to stay away from the ones that better benefit from a 12s setup but can run 6s. (This is a cake and eat it too situation)

I already have to many heli, but am thinking about one (maybe 2 more..lol)
Anyway, I like being able to use one 6s and would like to be able to use my existing 5000mah packs and also have very capable 3d machine. Although I have a ways to go to be where I want to be as a 3d pilot. This is all about being able quickly pop in and out a battery and just keep flying. Right now goblin 570 is a first pick based on my knowledge.

Can't really recommend one, but will share thoughts and experience
so far.
I just got a Trex 550 DFC and a Logo 500 for exactly that purpose,
i.e. to be able to fly them with 6S 5Ah LiPos. I have flied a few flights
with the 550 and I like it. I have not maidened the Logo yet, but I feel
convinced that I will like it too.
My feeling when flying the 550 was that it flied more like a 700 than
like a 500. Quite stable, also at low RPM I tried some 1400 RPM.

Regards,
Bo

Best 550 for 5000mah batteries would have been the Outrage 550, but since it is no longer in production I would say it is now the Logo 550 SX.

Id recommend a goblin 500 with the Lynx stretch kit. There you have a light 550, great for 6s and my 5000mah packs put the CG dead on!

Logo 550SX. It's the only 550 I'd consider running on 6S.

I thought my Agile 5.5 was good on 6S, then I put 12S through it and it was completely different.

Logo 550sx. Light disk loading so it flies awesome with 1 5000 and excels in a wide range of HSs

DT520E. It's lighter than any true 550 and prefers packs in the 5000mAh range for CG. It can use blades from 520-550mm.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.

550SX for me too. IMO agile 5.5 is too heavy to be flying on one pack.

Logo 550SX. This is the lightest true 550 I've ever flown and my favorite heli. I can fit up to 5300 45C packs with no issues. Good enough to share with my T700e.

No love for the Gaui X5? I'm seriously considering this heli as a replacement for my Blade 550X. I do have and love the X3.

Loved my X5, but it wont take a 5000 mah battery. It flies best with a 3800-4100 mah.

Of course you will get a lot of opinions on this but in my experience the Synergy E5 with a Scorpion 4025-1100 is a great setup. This heli feels very locked in and stable, no undesirable tendencies.

It's to heavy really for 1 battery
