Okay, so as I alluded to in another thread I just "inherited" a Logo 500 airframe that I'm looking to get back into flight status. It's in pretty good condition but is in need of some TLC.

My background is that I have a lot of simulator time, but only a few dozen (~28) "real" flights on a Trex 450. I'm not looking to jumping right to the 500 quite yet, but would like to start my "migration" to the 500 by June or so of this year.

I have no real interest of doing 3D so I don't think I need some crazy headspeed, or HV setup, or anything like that. So, bottom line is that I'm looking for a setup recommendations for a new guy like me. From the research I've done, I think the following setup is good for me, but would like some feedback from you guys...

Motor: HK-4025-890 (With 12T pinion and 106T mod .1 main)
ESC: YGE 120LV (w/WR Super Hercules BEC)
Cyclic Servo's: Spektrum 6040's (Already have) or JR8717's (Have 2, need a third).
Tail Servo: JR8900G or Futaba BLS-251
Battery: 6S 5000Mah (I don't know what brand yet)
Gyro: Skookum 720 (Blasphemy, I know) or VBar. Of course I'm attracted to the "bailout" of the Skookum, but I'm not opposed to going with a VBAR.

Whatcha think?

Looks great to me. My vote is for the V-bar. The V-bar will walk you through the whole setup process, and you can easily and quickly change the heli from mellow, to wild....You watch, you will want to start doing some mild 3d eventually, it's inevitable.....Good choices, and good luck....Ask lots of questions....

Question, does anyone think it would be reasonable to use the YGE 80LV?

I would go with at least 100A, although the 80lv would probably work for mellow non-crazy 3d stuff. I am personally a big fan of the Kontroniks and YGE stuff, but I have to tell you that I have 2 Hobbywing Platinum's in 2 of my birds, and they feel exactly the same on the V-bar gov. I am quite impressed, and for a fraction of the cost....Not a suggestion, just my opinion.....Jake
