I freshened my Logo 600 BAR up for IRCHA. For looks I added the CNC Tail Pulley, CNC Idler Pullies, and the CNC Tail boom holders. The CNC upgrades were strictly for looks and while I was at it, I added a new boom (flat black one), new white skids, blades stickers for visibility, and a new canopy.
I also upgraded the power system to 12s, added a Mega Power HV ESC (Robbe rebadged) so that I could utilize the VBAR governor, a new Scorpion HKIII 4035-450 motor, and 13t pinion,. The setup went very good and with MrMel and Jag72's help, I got the gov tuned in very nicely. The ESC does not have a BEC so I ran a 2s lipo to my 8717s again and used a Spektrum regulator for the tail servo. I also got some of the new Pulse 6s 3300 45C packs packs.
Only two flights so far but the whole setup runs very nicely and smoothly. The ESC/gov does not miss a beat and the servos are all cool after a flight . I am glad I did the upgrade, it was worth it ..........Ron

Love my 12s setup, very efficient and the Logo flies effortlessly. When it comes down the hottest thing on the heli is the head of the Scorpion motor... surprise right? The batteries could probably go straight on the charger.

What flight times are you expecting out of the 3300s?

I did all the wiring when I got back

@Steffgiguere...I am not special at all. I would consider myself a sport flyer who is just getting into 3D

@HeliRush27...I am unsure right now, I will get more flights on it flying as hard as I can so I can get an idea......

Id like to say yes but those 6 weeks out of action this year consumed too much time....Next year, next year.
Your heli looks awesome.

Hey Ron, nice job! I'll have to hit you up for some help programming the same ESC when you get back from IRCHA. I just picked up two of those (Mega Power 120A) and a few of the same 3300 mAh Pulse packs that I'll also be using on a 400SE.

Have fun at IRCHA! I'm bummed to be missing it (again)...

Performance Update!!!!
I have to say 12s rocks!!!!! I am seeing more power, cooler running electronics, and more fun . I am flying for 4 minutes for the test flights and I am averting 2000 put back in to the 3300 packs. The rx pack is averaging 220 mah back in after 3 minutes also. Very nice upgrade and I am going to recommend it to everyone. Here is a video of me flying it as hard as I can doing constant tic tocs trying to see how much this setup can handle. As you can see, it takes it and loves it. The servos are around 87 degrees, the packs around 115 degrees in the center, and the ESC is 107 . Even the Scorpion motor is under 130.... Flippin awesome!!!!!
2300 HS
+/- 15 degrees pitch
4 minutes
12s 3300 45C Pulse packs
