Default Logo 550 to Logo 600

Hi, Can I just stretch a new Logo 550 with the metal blade grips to a Logo 600 ? Is it the same head ? Is it the same tail?

I know the frame is the same. I would have to replace the canopy, boom, belt, and landing gear?

I canít find the parts for the new Logos on Mikado USAs web site.

Landing gear is the same, the canopy mounting posts are different. Canopy may work just fine depending on how far forward you need to go with the battery's. If the canopy will not work I know a guy that would probably purchase it and all the removed 550 parts There are many small things to change to make an actual 600 though. Main gear, pinion support bearing 5mm to 6mm, tail support rods, tail support clamp, tail gearbox clamp, tail pushrod and clamp, tailboom, belt, tailboom stops and of course main and tailblades. I really like my Logo 550SX just the way it is , a fun great flying machine that is simple to go fly. Hope to see you in a week at the helifly. Lets hope for some nice weather.

Thank You Dennis !! It takes quite a few parts. Have to think about it. There is a 550 for sale. I am planning on coming to your fun fly. Weather permitting.

No one has mentioned that the main grips, arms and spindle are different on the 600 yet, though the 550 grips will probably take 600mm blades.

Would a a stretch using 550se parts suit you? I have been pleasantly surprised by mine. Run rotortech 610's at 2000rpm and you can throw it around pretty good.

Well Ken, I looked and found that the blade holders as well as the pitch arms for the grip are different parts #s between the 550 and 600. They each still only show the original spindle as always, so I am guessing that since they both use the same head block that the changes are all in the grips.The 600 spindle is 109mm and the 550 is 86mm and has smaller thrust bearings and radial bearings. The radial grip bearings in the 550 are 8x14x4 and the 600 has 8x16x5 in it's grips.
So they are different.

I stretched mine from 550sx to SE. Slightly shorter than the 600sx. I also went 25mm boom and 600 grips. The 600 grips are wider than the 550’s were. Not sure about the latest versions.
My 550 grips ended up on my 480 stretch.
I run 600 blades 6s.
IMO it is a bit hard on packs but flies excellent and light.
Very relaxing to fly. 18/1900 and I can still get 7 minutes.
Autos are super fun.
Totally worth it IMO.

I’ll bet something like 8s 3700’s would rock this

Thank you for the info. Really appreciate it. With the new metal grips....I am not sure it would be worth trying to convert a 550 to a 600. I might just have to buy a 600 some day. Thanks

It might be worth looking into the width of the head blade bolt to blade bolt.
Even if you keep it 550 and the 600 head its say 15 mm wider you gain that in lift. I can't recall the max blade clearance with 550 configurations, but just saying. things like that have improved my helis in the past.
