But you wont do that will you. No. you are actually gonna fly it and your life will never be the same. Its such a good flying heli, you will want more. One Logo is never enough, they fly so well..A 550 maybe then 690. A 700. then you are hooked. Parts, canopys, shafts gears. tail fins,

Get out while you still can.

The best of luck with it, and I actually love Mikado Logos.
I owned no logos last year at this time. Now I own 5 with enough spares to make another.

They are announcing a big heli at rotor live this weekend. I think it's a big heli! Lol

Maybe an 800?

I know most probably won't agree with me, but I would love to see Mikado do a Logo 300 or 380 size. The old Logo 400 is outdated and the closet thing to that is the 480 which is more of a 500 size. I think Mikado dipping into the smaller market would do well for them.

I was thinking the same thing. Be neat to see.

That's not the new 800 frame. It appears to be an old saddle pack prototype, of the 700 perhaps.

If you want to run 10s it would be a good option.

would the scorpion 4035-500 be a better option for 12s?

I think were getting off track.. this is for a logo 600 right? the 450kv is the stock 12s motor. the 560kv was the 10s motor.
I use the 4035-500 in light 700's

The Scorpion 4035-450 is the recommended motor for a 12s setup in the 600. The gearing in the Logo is setup for lower KV motors than many of the other heli brands out there. You would run into possible gearing issues with the 500kv and 12s.

I am using 4035-560kv with 11T pinion and 12S. No problem at all and lots of power. Main gear has even survived one good crash.

P.S. I also have a Scorpion 4225-500kv LE laying around, but hasn't bothered to Try it yet. Might be a better option with 12T pinion. It is also a bit lighter.

depends what head speed your running. 2300-2400 with a gov, yea the 560 is fine.. any lower and your not in a good area for the gov. the 450 would be better.

I agree with Tony as the 450 gives you gearing options from lower to higher head speeds with the available pinion gearing. The 560kv is designed as the 10s motor for the Logo 600 but if you like 2200 rpm and up on an 11 tooth pinion it will work fine. This is part of the fun in this hobby, we can tune and customize our machines to our individual liking.

Yes, 2200 RPM is what I am running.

But like I said, I will probably try a 4225-500kv this spring.

Thanks PM me if you would like to sell me one.

Oh and by the way, the new 600 kit does not come with a pinion.
