Wouldn't you use larger batteries and blades on the 700?

If I get a 600SE, it will have 693's, and 12S 5000 batts, at 1900HS.

12S 5000mah packs on a Logo 600SE, especially if you use a 50mm Scorpion motor, will be quite nose heavy. There's been lots of discussion previously about max battery weighs on the Logo 600SE to achieve good balance. Can't recall the exact number in grams, but a "600SE" search would probably reveal the details. Something in the 4000mah range seems to be common with 12S.

Even with 10S 5000mah packs, Kyle's Logo 600SE needs about an ounce of weight on the tail to balance spot-on, using a Scorp 5020-450.

Of course the Logo 700 will be arranged to accept and balance with the larger capacity 12S packs, as it will most likely be routinely flown at higher head speeds than the Logo 600SE, with larger blades as well.

Dave, how about a Pyro 700-45 motor, it's several oz's lighter than the Scorp..pretty sure. And I may have to use my Spyder packs. They are shorter and thus could be put futher back...

Well, I'm kinda in uncharted territory here. We've never tried the combination you've mentioned. Lighter motor yes, packs a little further back yes, so...maybe, maybe not. I've never even seen a Spyder pack (guess i need to get out more)

Guess I'm not much help at this point.

flight times and performance will come down to power to weight ratio. So let;s not speculate on flight time and abilities just yet folks. Rest assured it will be well in line and an improvement IMO over other 90 electrics currently on the market, sometimes coming in abit late has it's benifits.

Band1086,

Even with the Pyro 700-45L and 12S 4500 mine is ever so slightly nose heavy. I think no matter how you slice it 5000s are going to need a good amount of tail weight to balance out.

Logo 700 Battery Sizes
I would assume with the size of the 700 being able to run 800mm blades box stock, it will easily accommodate a big set of 12S 5,000's+ and balance in doing so easily.

Some guys will want to run 6,000's and it should hold them. Some will run 14S, if there are controllers out there to go 14s with.

I sure hope it has some sort of tray like a 700E. That is a nice thing for sure.

Wow, it must have a LONG tail boom...800mm blades would be cool, though not many choices yet like the 700 size.

Along with a nice battery tray, we need clearance between the batteries and the end of the motor shaft I watched two-12S batteries go up in flames at IRCHA 2010 after the end of the motor shaft wore through them, causing them to short in mid flight. It was not a pretty sight times two. It is amazing how fast the birds fall out of the sky during a battery short

really?, only inflight fires I saw were due to Castles igniting. It was a huge flight line so could have missed something that's for sure, what were those on?

Ronnies bird (in our group) and someone I do not even know. If you were looking at the flightline from a spectators point of view, they would have been at the 3rd or 4th flight station from the left end of the flightline...

I can't believe Mikado hasn't released any pics yet. People are dying to see what it looks like, so please give us something.

Smacka, was the rubbing through from the motor shafts not being cut, or battery straps coming loose in flight?

Hi BigFil:
Definitely the motor shafts needed to be cutback with a dremel (or by???insert the name of your favorite hobby tool here). The clearance without doing so was ever so slight that any flex from battery weight being toss around would cause it to contact the end of the motor shaft.

The difficult part is that most motor shafts from the manufacturers are hardened steel, and difficult to cut or grind without owning a machine shop whereby the removal of material can be accomplished clean.

Blades and everyone, mikado will not release pics and info until the model is near ready to ship. Their full focus is this helicopter that you can be certain of it is not a mass production company rather that of one of pride in product, be patient I need to remind myself as well you are not alone soldiers!!

Cutting hardened shafts should be a breeze with a dremel cutoff laminatec disc. I cut 3 of them last summer, results was quite decent with a fairly nice even chamfer.
