Hello,

For now, I've been flying the Logo500 3D with 500mm and MS 515mm blades. The MSComposit 515 are great blades, but they tend to be very very hard to find now.
Apparently, people are running 550 blades with great success, so I might switch to 550mm.

Could you please tell me:
- what pinion do you use (I am with a .7 mod gear) ?
- what is your flight time (3D if possible) ?
- is the battrey very hot after a 3D flight ?

Thanks,
Fabien

I am using a 15 tooth pinion and get about 5 min flight time using a 6s5000mah older 20c PolyRC pack. I am also using 550mm blades and switched from 500mm blades. Shawn here on the board told me that there is a night and day difference between the 500mm and the 550mm and he was right. My Logo 5003D had more grunt than my 50 size nitro heli.

The Future of Nitro is ELECTRIC

Same here 15T, 5.5M flight time on a 5000MAH 6S, battery is not really hot. 550MM rotors will make a big difference!

I use an 18 or 19 tooth on my L10 with Z30A-1100 and 5s Flightpower/Hyperion packs. I run the 580mm Mikado blades.

I am about to stretch my L10 for 580mm blades (#1047) - will hopefully get them today. I am using the #2480 650mm boom and #2444 belt. Had to order the #4000 battery support to get the CG right.

I also have the M1,0 second/tail gear and belt from the L20/24? heli for a 600mm+ stretch (690mm boom) somewhere for the L14.
AZ, do you know which max blade length to use for this setup?

I will use the L10/580 for the smaller cameras and the L14/600+ for a Canon 450D.

Now, the question is if I should go with the L500/600 instead as they seems to have a more efficient/better main gear???

when I ran that motor I ran 16 tooth goverened at 80% on jazz, worked good.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Hi Mosfet,

I'm running the Z30 with Jazz 80 and a 15 tooth pinion. I get 2100 at 76% governed for 5:45 flight times putting about 3700 back into the TP 6S 5000 mah batteries. (Moderate 3D flights.)

Temps at 85 F ambient:

Motor: 127 F
ESC: 130 F
Batteries: 118 F

Hope that helps.

Keep 'em flying.
