I wonder how much one of hose "packages" costs?

Just curious, is there a cure for this addiction?

That looks like a Logo 400

Whatever they did to get 500 size heli to fly for 20 minutes, maybe run 6s 5000 pack?????

Skeptic hat is on.....

I've actually flown the Hornet Micro and can vouch for AFI. It's a good system but you'll pay good money for it.

The pics on the website look a lot like a Logo airframe, can you tell me how they get such long flight times from an electric heli loaded up with equipment?

Georges from Scorpion got a 20 minute flight time by running HV packs at super low head speed, but it was no easy feat.

If I could get my electric helis to fly for 20 minutes, I'd pay almost any amount of money for that technology.

Found an answer:

Logo 600 airframe

Still, they boast a 25 minute flight time.

Really?
Loaded up with video equip, an IMU, GPS, microcontroller/ microcomputer?

I got deep enough pockets. I am willing to fly up there and get a demo, and walk away with one, put the fancy stuff on a bigger heli, and turn the Logo 600 into a 30 minute sport flying machine.

Did you guys miss the 23min flight during the Mikado hour at IRCHA?

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

Yeah, that was Georges' ultra low headspeed project.
He's the freaking brains behind Scorpion motors and that was no easy feat.
Now, load up 2 lbs of gear to that thing, and the load drops his flight time to 18 minutes....
Where's teh 25 minutes come from?????

It's that stupid 007 Goldfinger music that keeps it up for 25 mins.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
