So, I have been tossing the idea around of getting a Logo 500. However, with quite a few different models out there I am posting in here with the hope that one of the members here who fly a Logo can provide me with some direction and input on which would be the best way to proceed.

Thanks !

There are two models:
1) Logo 500 - designed to run 500-550mm blades.
2) Logo 500 SE designed to run up to 600mm blades.

I guess you want to buy Log 500. It runs awesome on 6s 5000ma with 550mm blades.

If you want to run bigger blades like 600mm I recommend to buy Logo 600 instead of Logo 500 SE.

ReadyHeli has a list with recommended setups for Logos.

Thanks Dimitry !

Is the Logo 500 that much bigger then the Align 500? I was hoping to use the batteries I already have, 6S 2500mAh. But I see now that the 500 requires 5000mAh batteries, where as the 400 will use the 2500mAh. Is the 400 the same size as the Align 450 then?

I know I could look all this up but I prefer to ask questions as then I get definite answers from those who actually fly these helis Smiley

Logo 500 has the same size as Trex 550 ( 500mm - 550mm blades)
Logo 400 has the same size as Trex 500 (425mm blades). You can put longer boom (available from Mikado) and run 475mm blades.

Log 400 is a great heli, but Log 500 has a better design (same design as Logo 600). It is a next level. If you can, go with Logo 500. You wont regret  Wink

So after doing some math on what this will cost I see now it is just a bit out of my budget. Time to start saving all those bottles and cans  Shocked
