I like the size of the Logo 10 but I hear that the Logo 14 allows for a single larger battery pack.

I am thinking about buying a Logo 10 but don't want to be limited to 10 min of flight time. So should I go for the 10 or 14? Can anyone list the pros and cons for me between the two?

Help.

On my Logo 10 I get about 20 minutes of flight time with one 4S4P battery. I actually fly three 6 minute flights on each battery. I'm sure I could fly three 7 minutes flights on each battery, because I only charge the packs up 6,000 mAh.

The Logo 14 looks like an awesome helicopter though. If I had the extra money I would buy one of them. If I had the choice now, I think I would have bought the Logo 14 instead of the Logo 10 I have. I think they would be about the same price except the battery packs would cost more.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Hey Saint... been a while since I've seen your posts in the HB section. Good to see you're still out there.

My concern about the 14 is the size and weight. I like the 10 for it's size and weight better.....more the size though.

I saw a guy flying his 10 at the MHA open house in near by Washington DC and he was doing some unbelievable super 3D. It was truly impressive. But he said something about the batt packs that would fit in the 10. He said I should consider the 14 becasue I woudln't have to fly two batt packs..... I don't understand.

Does the 10 not have a housing large enough for an ample batt pack?

What's the largest batt pack that can be installed in the 10? What about the 14? and what is the difference in flight times between the two?

The guy I saw was flying very hard for 13+ minutes..... Very very Hard 3D.


Thanks............ Miles

Thanks Miles, yeah I'm stil here, I just don't post as much.

I'm not sure as the size difference between the two, because I've never actually seen a Logo 14 yet. I only know one other person around here that has a Logo 10 and I built it for him.

If your going to buy a Logo 10 with the stock plastic frames then the widest battery pack you can use is about 48mm wide. They also can only be about 28-30 mm in hight. Depending if you use the hardened main shaft depends on the hight of the battery pack you can use. The standard main shaft can use a higher battery pack. You would be able to use a HV battery pack with a stock main shaft.

I'm not sure what the largest battery pack you can use in either the Logo 10 or 14? I think some people are using a HV set up and their running 8S2P packs? I just use the slim TP8000-4S4P packs. They barely fit under the hardened main shaft. I have about .5 to 1 mm clearance under the shaft. They also barely fit inside the carbon frames. The slim packs are 45 mm wide. I think I might buy some new packs and see how they fly? I'm thinking about a couple packs of 4S3P or 4S2P? I think it will fly better with the same voltage, but a lighter pack?

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

I run a 8s 2p 4000 mah TP lipo in my logo 10 and have plenty of room under the mainshaft. my tp lipo is a single pack, not two 4s 2p's series together.
I don't use the hardened main shaft, but i could with my new design frames.

The Logo 14 has plenty of room for the batteries. I use a 5s4p pack with mine, but several guys are going with HV setups along with "the box" to step down the RPM.

The 14 also comes with an autorotating tail. The head and tail are from a Logo 20. The 14 can be upgraded to the 20 by buying the boom, belt, and control rod for the 20, then you can use the 600mm blades.

Then there's the greater stability that comes with larger helis.
