A Logo 600? Ok I know there may likely be a biased response, but for those of you who have had or have a Logo 600/SE, how would you compare the two? I have been away from helis for a little while now, but hung onto my Logo 600se and little Rave. I've had a couple N9's and an N5, and have been nothing but happy with Synergy. So now I am considering an addition to the hangar, and it's between the E6/7 and the Xxtreme, which cost wise for now I am leaning towards the 700 size....Thanks in advance....Jake

The Logo 600 is a great heli, simple and trouble free.

The only issue I had with my 600SE is that it wouldn't take my aggressive flying style. It's a mostly plastic machine, although the plastic is quite durable. I was replacing the main grip bolts on a weekly basis because they were bending, the head just wasn't beefy enough for aggressive flying with the longer 700 size blades.

The E6/E7 is also a simple, trouble free heli, with an industrial look, mostly carbon fiber and metal, but the components are more beefy, for example when you go to larger main blades you swap the bolt and bolt sleeve in the grips to a larger diameter. The only issue I've had with my E7 is the belt slapping a bit during aggressive maneuvers.

The E6/E7 was designed for both sizes, the Logo 600SE was an after thought.

The XXTreme is a different beast entirely, make sure you see one in person and in flight before you buy and gear that bad boy up.

Ok, thanks. I definitely am going with the E7, and I am also looking at picking up a 500....I am thinking the Atom 500 at this point....

Ok, getting my cash ready, and am about to order. Does anyone see an issue with running an ICE 100? I happen to have one. I was thinking of going with the Hacker package from Aeromodel, but I can save a few hundred by just using my ICE100. I plane to run 12s, and will most likely keep it as an E7 as I already have a set of 693's....

Oh, and I plan to run a Hercules BEC, which I also already have.

I assume you did a typo.....twice but just in case the Ice 100 is a 8s esc. Only the Ice HV series can do 12s being the Ice HV 60, 80, 120 and 160.

You could use an 80 but best bet would be go for the 120.

Ahh you're right, forgot about that. I do have a Phoenix 110 that was meant for another project.

Ok, still researching the right esc for me, probably going with an Xera if I can find one, but I have one nagging question that's been bugging me and I've felt too dumb to ask as I have plenty of experience to know the answer but this particular Heli is throwing me off. What are the differences mainly in flight between the e6 and e7? I realize the blades and weight, but I've researched a bunch of your setups and watched videos and they seem to fly similarly and so many of you have virtually the same setups between the two. My gut tells me the 6 is more nimble and faster, but this very obvious answer has me somewhat fooled. Thanks fellas.

Both having the same 12S setups, the E6 @ 2300 is going to be wicked fast and crazy agile and the E7 @ 2150 is going to fly bigger with more stability. The E7 will have a much bigger presence at the field and attract more attention.

That's pretty much what I figured. I already have a set of 693's and I prefer big air more mellow smooth type 3d and I love autos, so I'll stick with the E7. So is anyone running this on 8s or less? If I'm going to just keep it on 12s either way then I think the Jive 80 will work just fine.
