Default DT520v2 Belt

I have 2 of the DT520v2 with a ton of flights on both. I decide to give the DT520 a try almost 2 years ago due to a Logo500 hard crash. It cost a lot more than I wanted. Every little part was a seperate cost. Went with the DT520v2 due to cost and stlye of the frames.

I like the belt and haringbone main gear. Machine is super smooth. I have ran 550mm blades but I prefer the 520 Dt blades because the modle is super quick and responsive. After you compair the crash cost of the machines you will see were I'm coming from. The heli flies just as good as a Logo500 but crash cost almost 1/2

There is just something about getting a great heli and being able to fly it hard not being scarde of crashing.

Check them out at www.onlyfinehelis.com. He has a few adds up on helifreak.

Check my other post in DT Forum on HF main page.

You are obviously missing out by having a hole in your nearly complete product line

Cant believe that many people still love an old design since 2005. Mikado did a really good job.

Yep, it's simply that good. No drama, just pure fun and great quality.

A friend of mine who has been flying for over 10 years and has flown many different heli's, plus, is one of the most precise and impressive pilot I have ever seen who is not a pro, has always said the Logo 600sx is one of the best heli's ever made.

I didn't believe him from all the hype around the Goblins and Compass and other heli's when I first got into the hobby, but, now that I have flown and owned the majority of major brands out there, I now understand. Mikado hit the nail on the head.

Yet another logo 550sx vote here. I've got about 200 flights on each of my 2 Thor 5000 45c packs and while they are not explosive they still very fly very good. Not disappointed with my Trex 550 v2 either, but the logo is just better and easier to get the right cg and looks nicer. Logo also needs no upgrades out of the box. The l500/550/600/690 frame design is legendary. Lots of room to grow with that kit.

I get 120a peaks on the logo and 150a peaks on the trex with the same flight envelope. Same flight times.

After my 5000 packs bite the dust I'm planning on upgrading my 550sx to 12s. Not that it needs it, but just for fun, and kind of planning for a future g570.

A 6s Goblin 570 should have a very light discload? Unless your a really heavy smacker, I think this would be a perfect helicopter for the size, and the route I'm planing to take myself.
