Flew the maiden flights on my 600 today. What a beast. God I love my mikados. The only glitch is the Kontronic esc, I like the simplicity but I wish the gov. Was more dead on.

@laughing

The esc is working fine,I just don't like the way I get different rpms with different packs. I only programmed mode 4. Still trying to figure out the other gov setup.

@wrangler. I have an se with carbon frame set,luv that also

Program mode 11. That is what mode 11 does, make the HS the same between packs

Also did you program it as per MrMel's vids?

If you go mode 11, go with your "worst" pack first so it sets the std, and doesn't try to overwork the lesser packs in the future. And/or go mode 9 as well, lipo protection.
Definitely a lot of good vids and setup tips on the net.

I don't know... I just put 623mm on my SE... like it better. Can thrash harder without ill effects (woof) and it locks into the maneuvers better... was too floaty for me. Never thought I'd say something was TOO light.

I just convert mine from SE to standard 600 heli was flown good seem like have plenty of power and collective but only ran 4:30 to 5 mins flight time ( mild 3D ) My set setup are V-bar full size, 3 8717 cyclic, 8900G tail, 120HV Jive mode 11, x2 5100mah volts kinda alittle heavy, Scorpion HKIII 4035-530, Edge 623, Pith -13+13 degree, 12T pinion, after 4:30 min land motor Temp 185F, ESC, batteries 125F. HS 2200, performance was great, today I tested flight compared with Align 600E pro setup almost identical except the batteries only 2600mah 6S X2 the align was twice faster than my logo 600, punched with full collective climb like a rocket tictoc all days. Now make me thinking about Align 600E pro, cuz I like more smack down

Funny because I feel that the Kontronik has the best gov in the market right now. Different speeds with different batteries is better than different speeds with different batteries and different speeds during one flight (gov not holding the head speed). As the guys said program it in mode 11.

Yeah, your carrying twice the battery as that 600pro. I'd go with the 3800s. 6S 4400s are better suited for an SE due to the weight.

2x6S 5100s are even super heavy on an SE.

@ phil

Phil, how are you doing,

I am running 5000 x 2 6s on my se and i get 8 mins on big air with mild 3d manouvres and I am only putting 70% back in the packs. I can prob. get 9 mins if i wanted to push. On my 600 i run 2 x 4500 5s and im getting 6 mins and only putting 55 % back into the pack.

Wow. I use 6S 3700 x 2.... They are well over a POUND lighter than the 5100 you are running. You are way over-weight.

Your batts are 1.7lbs heavier than the 2600 packs. That's almost like the feel diff of running a 700 on 600 blades!!!
