AFAIK, there are no "metal upgrade grips" from Mikado or any other supplier. My guess is that they're not needed for this application. Why? Because if I'm a design engineer at Mikado, I'm looking at the expected forces and design requirements (such as weight and cost).

Some materials simply make more sense than others. For blade grips, I'm looking at tensile strength (how much force necessary before being pulled apart), and not so much hardness (to withstand impacts) or fatigue strength (to withstand being pushed together or pulled apart).

Different plastics and metals each have different have different grades and properties. I know that some people just like the "bling bling" from metal parts. I generally just want what works best.

Not picking a fight with you at all, but if I made a FBL head made of crushed tin foil, would you trust/buy it because it was "metal?" I'm just saying that the plastic grips on the Logo 500 are more than able to withstand any forces generated on that machine.

Very few use metal aftermarket heads on their Logos. If you just like "bling", then fine. But there is no need.

Quote: "...what Motor will I need and ESC also..."

You need to decide if you're going to use 6S or 8S, as that will determine motor kv. ESC: I recommend with 6S use 100 amp, with 8S use 80 amp.

Hey thanks a lot guys (dahld)(wiesenflieger)(ElectricSheep) I had a feeling about the plastic that there were no upgrades and it seems to not be a problem by reading in the Forum. One more question (dahld ) can you direct me to a good Motor for the 6S and the ESC like where to buy
and thanks to all once again.

I'd love to hear from others on hot motors for 6s. I have the HK-scorpion 1100kv motor with 16t pinion, a Jive LV 100 ESC which has a fantastic governor and good BEC. Use the TP 45C 5000mah batts. I think this is a really good set-up.

Tday - Do you have the Scorpion HK4025 or HK4020 motor?

blade3d - I'd definitely agree with Tday that he has an excellent setup. Based on specs alone the HK4025 is more powerful than the HK4020... But course the extra power comes at the price of less flight time.

I've thought about converting one of my 600s to a 500SE; I've asked many of the guys here (that have flown both the HK4025 or HK4020) and the consensus is that unless you really need or want the extra power, the HK4020 is plenty fun, with the benefit of longer flights.

Either one would be a great choice -- it's just up to you which you value more (more power or more flight time).

You can get either motor and the ESC here:

http://www.readyheli.com/Scorpion_H...k-4025-1100.htm
http://www.readyheli.com/Kontronik_.../jive100_lv.htm

BTW, yes you can buy a cheaper ESC but IMO if you can swing it get the Jive and be done with it.

Good luck and let us know what you decide!

I do think you want all the power you can get out of 6s as well. The HK-4025 is a recent upgrade for me after reading another thread on whether to upgrade to 8s; no...then another on what 6s motor...HK-4025 1100kv was considered strong. I get 5 min a flight of hard flying and it's very strong as advertised and has a really "nasty" sound too. It's strong enough that it "ate" a soft metal main shaft via the one-way bearing. Now I'm running the hardened one. Tom
