Mikado Logo 550SX ordered... The ONLY thinks thats sux is the limited motor chouces. Scorpian and Mikado teamed up to design a bolt pattern that forces most of us to pay the silly markup on there design. I will be setting up w KDE 100KV cor first flights.

R/C is like the mob ..once your in , your NOT gettin out !

PICK ONE BRAND FOR 550 600 CLASS ELECTRIC

I really really like my Raptor E550 tri blade ... Strong looks , easy to wrench on , a blast to fly and the sound !!!....the sound of the three blades is beyond cool.

BUT..... the LOGO 550 , in my case the SX i know will be my daily flyer and i think i will be glad i picked it over some others .
For the record , i do not meam to bash any other bramds...i have owned several others and they were excellent machines ..my Align 500 and 450 were excellent.

I don't recall you bashing any brands, it's all good glad you found something "you " like. We all have different tastes and that's what makes this hobby so great.

All you need is a motor with 30mm bolt spacing and a 5mm shaft.....nothing else is special for it...

I have Synergy, Compass, Align. E5 is on a different level, but the others are lower in cost and can be tuned to fly well, E5 flys well across a wide range of setting/head speeds ect... Was a 12s 550 I'm going to try 6s this season.

Find someone to machine a motor mount for you. It is not that hard to do and then you can fly whatever motor you want.

Align

I'm a newbie as far as electric and FBL are concerned. Still groping and hoping for enlightenment. Under the circumstances and in my corner of the world, Align is the practical choice mostly because of the practical accessibility of their 'Super Combo' kits. They certainly aren't cheap in the long ng run but get you started at reasonable cost.

I have been a long time user of Hirobo but my last exposure to them are still flybar and nitro. I still fly them, and SDX and EXII. I look forward to getting a more current Hirobo in the future and maybe even venture to try what I would consider more exotic stuff such as Synergy but for now, I'll be grinding my chops with the vacuum cleaner brand from Taiwan.
