I've seen a lot of Mikados fly and 690SX flies like nothing else - super smooth and super efficient and can even handle basic smack, although the manual warns not to exceed 2000rpm and 11degrees of pitch. I cranked mine up to 2150rpm and it smacks OK, although at 1850 it's ballistic enough due to low weight and crazy efficiency under load. It's basically a 600 stretched, which has been around for like 10 years now with different versions - basic, SE, SX, now V2, so it's definitely a tried and tested design.
Mikado had their own carbon frames a while ago, like the kaos frames, from what ive read, most people didn't like them compared to the plastic frame. not to mention finding replacement frame parts..I understand the nitro don't like the plastic. but the carbon does look cool.

I think that depends on the plastic, besides Mikado can't be to worried as they are still using plastic main grips.

TT Raptors and many Hiroboís never had any problems with fuel in the past. So Iím sure Mikado can make them in plastic if they want to

I'm done being excited over anything until I can order it and it ships immediately.

Time will tell.

The plastic main grip design is actually very cool - the blade grip arm is designed to break in a crash but the main grip itself is so beefy that the blade will never fly off. Everything else like the main shaft and feathering spindle takes kinetic energy of an impact really well, so most of the energy is transferred away from the frame. I've dug my Logo in and had all the parts basically sacrifice - unless one crashes the frame head on or goes in under a lot of power, it's hard to break the frame.

The only thing you can't do is run the blades very tight in the blade grips, but that's not really needed anyway.

Added bonus - all plastic parts are super inexpensive and use nylon nuts.

While your all on here, I see where kyle attached his pipe to the motor with the long bolts and nuts. I've been trying this today and for the life of me and can't thread them all the through by hand. My hand is sore and wore out. Any suggestions???? Would it be OK to use a 3mm hex screwdriver bit to run them all the way through with a battery screwdriver to break the screws in first, then tighten them by hand. This is kind of a logo question and pipe question all in one since Kyle is using this method on the goglo 690.

If that's on a OS 105, you need to drill out the motor case first. I think it's a 4mm bit? Don't remember for sure.

Heard something that Ralf Buxnowitz mentioned the Glogo 690 might be available around December.

This is why I like my logos. And parts interchangeability between sizes.

Sad to see the new ones all with aluminum grips now.

The plastic grips are exactly why I bought the last 550SX instead of the newest one.
