Default Which "one battery" heli should I buy by accident?

Not that I don't have enough helis, buuuuuuut, I may just do a Christmas build since I haven't done one for a few years. I basically want the largest heli I can get that runs on a single 6S 5000 mAh battery. Experience has told me I'm lazy when it comes to charging batteries and if it takes two batteries I will fly it less often. Also, I prefer not to add a new battery type to my list of little bombs I keep on hand. I already use these batteries for my Rush and a jet.

I love the way Logos fly so that give you an idea what I'm shooting for.

Thanks
Rick

We could suggest nitros that only need one RX battery.

I fly my Synergy E5 (stretched to 606) on a single 6s 5000mah 30c pack. My timer is 10 minutes at 1600rpm

My Goblin 570 Sport runs just fine on 6S. I'd say this is technically the largest stock kit that runs on 6S.

There has been some discussion here of whether you could get an Oxy 5 Meg (600 mm) and run it on 6S, but I'm not convinced that most batteries would take kindly to that kind of abuse.

Synergy 516 stretched to 556 blades. One 6S pack. Use a XNova 4025-1120 motor or similar. Lots of power, great design with belt tensioner, adjustable battery tray for CG, I use magnetic canopy closure so easy battery changes, carbon boom with no boom supports, no need for grounding, this design is strong and reliable. And it flies great !!!

LOVE it. FULL size servos, 550 mains. The "manual" is challenging, but I had no troubles.

I say Tarot 550 but there are many others to choose from. I like the Tarot cause its different than any other heli.

WOW. You're not kidding. Lots of great choices and many brands I haven't tried. Thanks for the great feedback. I'll have to chew on this one a while. The Logo 550 would be a logical choice for me but I do like switching off just to try different brands. Decisions, decisions. Life is good for sure!

Just make sure the main shaft fits one of your leveling tools.
