I can only think of three of the top of my head, but im sure there is more.

Trex 600, logo 600 and the eraptor.

Logo is probly the best but the most expensive, e raptor a bit old, Ive had a Trex 600 e for about a year and love it, could do with a bit more power on the stock 6s setup, but its not as bad as some make out, similar to a 50 nitro.

Hand down logo 600, I really don't know what the fuss on spares prices are, come on main frames $20 a side thats a lot cheaper than align, sure the booms may be $20 and swash like $80 but i don't plan on crashing.

Also i had the E620SE on 10S and logo 600 on 10S IDENTICAL setup and the E620SE felt really heavy, the Logo 600 is a dream to fly compared to it. I even had the KASAMA head and tail, still not as nice as the logo to fly.

Hello

It is my personal opinion that all of the referenced models are solid electric-powered vehicles, in their own right. However, in making your decision, maybe it would be of benefit for you to identify what you are looking for in a 600-sized heli (i.e., performance potential, parts availability, battery size, etc...).

I've heard people complain about the pace of the T-Rex 600 on 6S while other people marvel at the pace of a Logo 600 on 10S. Obviously there is going to be a difference in the helicopter's attitude with the addition of 14.8V. I find it hard to compare the pace of a ship powered on 22.2V to the pace of a ship (of similar size) powered on 37V.

Currently, I fly a T-Rex 600 E, on 6S, as my primary vehicle and I really enjoy it's performance. Since I'm not really a hardcore 3D fanatic, I find that it fits my style in terms of performance, quality, and local support (I live 6 miles from Align). Not to say that the helicopter is not capable of being put through the rigorous 3D routines. The helicopter has been put through it's paces by our crew's hotshot pilot.

The Logo 600 is an awesome machine but it's substantially more expensive, to get in the air, than the T-Rex 600 E. The Logo does not include any electronic components ultimately leaving the builder with the responsibilities of purchasing the motor, the esc, a bec/regulator, and etc. Additionally, the Logo requires a 10S battery per Mikado's recommended setup. A 6S (T-Rex 600E) battery can be had for as little as $118 (Hobbycity). A 10S (Logo 600) battery will start around $350.

While I have not flown the Logo 600, I have flown the Logo 500 3D (on 6S) and all I can say is wow. The herringbone drive train (also included on the Logo 600) is very quiet and efficient. The lighter weight combined with the right power system really make the helicopter snappy. Parts support for Mikado is getting better now that ReadyHeli serves as their US distributor.

The E-Raptors are just not popular at my field. A few of the guys had the E-550 models way back when but they all sold their TT gear and went with Align. I'll bet that the Raptors are great platforms in their own respects but they don't have the Mikado or Align PR buzz backing them.

Good luck with decision and safe flying.

If you plan to do anything more than sport flying, IMHO 10S is mandatory.

With all due respect to hugeone you can put a neu or scorpion motor in a 600e and do hard 3d on 6s.

I see no mention of the MA Razor. I have an 8s Knight 600E which is plenty capable on a mere 8 cells.

I like what I see with the Razor, don't have one but I'd like to.

I'd be willing to bet that any of the machines mentioned in this thread are quite capable when outfitted well, with a good pilot at the helm.

I don't see 10S as being a requirement for great perfomance in this size class. If 12 volts is enough to turn over a huge V8, shouldn't 22 be enough for an eight pound toy helicopter?

T-tex 600 !
The t-rex 600 is cheap and parts are easy to get. Align has lots of stuff for it it all fits together well. There are better helis but for the money the t-rex is a good buy.
