A 6S 5000 is plenty for a Logo 500, but it will certainly fly with 8S. Since you already have the packs, I'd recommend a setup where you can use them.

There's not that much difference actually
The 8S configuration will be kinder to the battery and ESC
(a little harder to balance the heli - use 4000mah or 4200mah packs)

Going from L500 fly bar to VBar makes a much bigger difference

I have 8S 4500 and 5000 mah. which are heavy.. I know that 6S is enough for pwr but i just want to use these batts due to its comforming fit into the Logo 500 frame.. I think 8S will be much heavier than 6S version.. I would need 100amp esc for 6S and maybe 75amp esc for 8S. CC ice seems very good option for it..

I changed my FBL to 8S. 4 x 4S Hyperion 2600mah and 2 x 8S Outrage 4200mah that I split in half and folded into one long stick pack. The heli has tons of power at 15° pitch and no bogging to speak of.
