You Logo 500 folks are missing the point! The OP already has a Logo 600. Not a single person who owns a Logo 600 would trade it for a Logo 500, unless they were brain dead! His only option to gain performance is to go to the Logo 700 or some other brand heli.

Been there done that. I am now in the process of building a Logo 700 because my Goblin 700, although a very good heli, does not have the locked in, confident feel of a Logo.

The 800 is nice too. Huge, smooth and not that much more than a 700.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D

I don't think we are missing anything. The Logo 600 is not a 6S bird if you want it to perform as expected. That is where the 500 shines.

I know many guys who have Logo 600s and love their 500. I used to keep my 500 in the vehicle at all times for a quick flight pretty much anywhere.

The 600 is more for a day at the field. They are two different machines because of how you configure them.

If I had a choice between the two I would go back to my 500. Of course I would still have the 700.

500 or 700?....no contest, 500 is more fun.

Between the 500 and 600 you can stick with a scorpion 4025 and have either a 3d animal 550mm 6s or a serious 600mm heli.

or not so serious...

This is my old flybarred 600 with 10 year old servos and a 4025.

about 10 degrees pitch, 1800rpm. 8lbs....less power than a 6s 5000mah

Watch at YouTube

that's flying on 100 watts per pound

those 4025 motors can average almost 300 watts a pound in a 500.

Its a bad vid, but I post it to show you a detuned 4025 hauling 8 lbs and not even being worked. Put that same motor in a 6.5 lb Logo 500 and ask it to do some work...

If you are a power-on type 3d guy who likes aggressive and quick, then the only reason to go for the 700 over the 500 is if you are really into 3d autos.
