After almost 200 flights I had to take several moments to replace a ball link.
The maintenance these things need is just too much!

Yup, its terrible, I had 500+ flights on mine, had to change thrust bearings twice as well as dampers twice too.

Hardest part is to remember to do it though

My question is ...HOW THE HELL are you guys getting that many flights without crashing?

I never have to worry about "routine" maintenence....Seeing as how I usually have to rebuild the machine every 20 flights or so

Trick is to crash all other machines but to spare one

well i spare the logo as parts prices are a tad higher then my other birds but with the hd parts being easier on the pockets i am going to start crashing my 500 a little more often! jk

Jag you know me better than that, Im talking maintenance here not stupid pilot thumbs! I will say I think 138 flights w/o incident of any kind is not a bad record but Im sure not bangin' the sticks like you are, thats for sure.

Changing out the connectors on my 10s lipos every 50 flights or so just pushes me to the limit. Oh wait, that's not a Logo part.

Never mind!

I almost feel guilty flying, while everyone else is trying to troubleshoot and maintain their helis.

It is amazing how tough the mainshafts and spindles are, as well.

I hovered my L700 over 100 flights now . I am too scared to do anything that I am not capable of on the Logo.

Happy Flying!

I seemed to have developed about .0001mm of slop on the head, man it's only been 130 flights or so.

After less than 200 flights my cyclic servos have developed roughly 1mm of slop. This is totally unacceptable. Oh damn, that's not a Logo part either.

Never mind!

I hate turning up at the field and flying LOL, everyone else is always fiddling while my 4 lipos are just rotated (fly/charger/repeat).

The only thing i do is replace dampers every now and again.
