I found a pretty good deal on a Logo 10. Just wondering what you all thought. I've flown everything from CP Pro's, Blade 400, Trex 450's, etc. I know the CP Pro and Blade 400 or boxed heli's and not enthusiasts heli's but the Trex 450 was cool. How does a Logo compare and can I find parts easily for a Logo 10?

"A pretty good deal" can mean many things. Things have been changing fast in the world of electrics, and what you might be buying (although only a year or two old), might be yesterday's news (power and control system wise. The Logo 10 itself has been unchanged for quite awhile).

For guys to know what to think, post the equipment list...you'll get a bunch of opinions then I bet .

As for Logo 10 parts, they are available here:

You're on a Mikado forum, so you can expect most to say Mikado helis and quality are definitely a step-up from a T-Rex 450. Well, Mikado forum or not, it's true .

I will have to say you picked the right brand of helis. The Logos are awesome, but I can't say how the Logo 10 is since I have not flown one. I am going to assume the quality is very very good just like the 400, 500, and 600. I myself have a Logo 500 FBL and freaking love it. Its my favorite heli I have ever owned. I think you will enjoy flying a Logo and won't give the Align Trex a second thought again.

When u don't feel like soaring through the air with a plane, beat it into submission w/ a heli!

Logo 10 = Logo 400 with longer boom and belt.

Its OK to hate me for telling the truth here, but what you got is a pretty low performance (and antiquated) system. I used to run the system some years ago when electrics were still nowhere comparable to nitros, and you had to be a "weirdo geek" just to be playing with electrics.

The Hacker C50-13L will run hot (we used to wire computer fans on them to try and keep them cool), the power will be weak, the heli will be heavy due to the low voltage high capacity batteries, you will have to run a very small pinion and thus gear strips are not uncommon (small mod.5 gears), the cyclic servos are weak and slow (they are a standard "high performance" sailplane servos), the batteries are 20C and thus will run hot if pushed very hard at all, and its on 72 mhz .

The Logo 10 is fine, but the electronics leave a bit to be desired. Will it fly? Yes. Will you be really happy with it? Probably not. A Blade 400 or T-Rex 450 has more performance these days.

By the way, we're still "weirdo geeks", but the helis have gotten a lot better .

Logo 10
The logo 10's are great machines...but that particular setup is an old setup and you should run for the hills from that deal.

It's just not worth it...

it's kind of hard to find the"right" logo 10 these days as they have been in retirement so long that not many people actually fly them any more..they are known as logo 400's now

if you are looking to go logo...start with the 400 or a 500

Thank you all for your words of wisdom. One more question, how much would a logo 500 run with all electronics, servos, motor, esc, gyro etc.

logo 500
There's no cheap way around it...getting a logo 500 up and running is pricey no matter what you decide to do for a setup.

the cost of a logo 500 airframe alone is more than most trex kits with servos etc

LOGO 10

That set-up is VERY similar to mine; just different brand Rx, servos,
and ESC. And I have never flown 550s on it.

Dave is right, that motor runs consistently hot, and I have also run
fans over the years off and on. One thing though, that motor j u s t
keeps going........still original w. same esc from '03!!

Everytime I think maybe I should consider selling it, I get in some
more flights and just realize over and over what a sweet flying heli
it is! A great companion to the L500/600s. And judging from what I have read here the last few months, I think I am stuck w. it anyway.

A great little heli!

The logo 10 is a great bird still today and is miles ahead of a T-rex 450 (I have one of those too) Mine is set up with a Z-30 1100kv motor, Castle Ice 100 ESC, and runs on 6S 3800-5000mah Lipos. I have stretched it and run 550 blades. It is simply an awesome flying heli. If you could get it as a bare bones kit and run a similar set up as mine you will have a great flying bird for a very reasonable price. If I was to do it again I would shoe horn a Scorpion 4025 into it and it would be an absolute rocket. Mine is already very light, very fast, and agile so I could imagine it with more power. Look for a used air frame and put newer components in it and you'll have a great bird for a reasonable price.
