The new 600 SX and 700 XXtreme look awesome. I've never owned one before but am Jones-ing for one of these. Tough decision tho, 600 or 700??? Ugh - decisions, decisions.

Any idea on a release date yet?

You can get a 600 logo and if you want bigger blades turn it into an SE, It will be close to a 700.

That's true but the 700 frame is new and the canopy looks wicked. The 600 maintains the same frame with a few upgrades. Makes for a tough decision.

Based on photos, I believe it's fair to say the 700 is a modified/downsized 800. The 800 is an unbelievable helicopter, in every sense, so I would expect nothing less of the 700.
The expected release date is mid September(ish). Its only a few more weeks, which will be well worth the wait!!!

@ kw_rc,

What are you flying now. Just curious as it might give an indication where you should go.

The Logo 600 (the 3D version or the new SX version), the Logo 600SE, and the Logo 700, all fly substantially different. They all have different power to weight ratios, disc loadings, belt vs. tube drive, CF vs. molded frames, and with the variables you have with each heli's set-up, you've got a tough decision for sure (I'm no help I know).

@ dahld - good point. I am flying the 700E DFC and 550E. The L600 would put me right between them but I do like the TT of the new L700. Price could also influence my decision as well.

Can you [please] describe some of the differences in flight characteristics?

Well, the Logo 600 3D is a favorite for being set-up as a hot rod, as it's quick, agile, and has a lot of "pop" if you want it to.

The Logo 600SE, due to it's head speed limitations with it's larger disc (max disc size of 693mm), is a little more of a cruiser, better suited for smoother 3D, and big air flying. It's kind-of a "700 lite".

The Logo 700 is a full tilt, full size "700 class" heli, designed for high power and higher head speed type "700" performance. It borrows a lot from the Mikado Logo 800, and is a strong heli that's hard to break in the air from abuse dished out by aggressive pilots and high power systems.

And as with most all helis, you can tone down the performance of any of them, to get more "sport" type performance, and longer flights.

Flight comparisons:

The only way to solve your dilemma, is to eventually get all three - HA! (-:

that's a tough decision to be sure. but, i can almost guarantee without a doubt that you'd never regret having gotten a Logo 600. It's the single best investment I've made in the hobby. It is quite simply a fantastic machine.

and, there's no guesswork. the 10s combo is just perfect.

if it ain't broke, break it.

It crossed my mind. I was staring at them on the RH site. Then, like a magnet, I was drawn to the 700. Good things will come to those who wait. This couldn't be more true. I almost pulled the trigger on a Gobbler the other day. Then I saw the new Logos. I'm glad I didn't do it. ;-)
