Just got a logo 500 to mess around with it fkys great. I am running a 6 cell 5000 mah. Getting 6.5 mins.. My question is this. What are most of you guys running for the battery and what head speed. Does anyone run 8s by using two 4s batteries? Would that be better that 6 s?

Thanks

A 6S 5000mah class battery is kind-of the standard on the Logo 500 (with 1100kv motors...which is also a very common motor for the machine). The gearing is based on these components.

Head speeds range from generally 2300 for aggressive 3D flying, to 2000-2100 for light 3D, 1800-2000 for more sport flying, and 1600-1800 for hovering and simple forward flight aerobatics.

All these head speeds can be had by changing pinions, which range for 11-15 tooth.

You can of course run 8S, but it's not very common, as you need to use a lower kv motor.

Mr. Eagle;
Yes, I run my Logo 500 on 8S, with a Tango 45-8 (that's an 800 kV motor). I usually use 2 X 4S 4000mah batteries with variable C ratings, and a HS of approx 2000 rpm. The 8S stick batteries make for a difficult CG. I usually get 8-10 min of easy sport flying with this set up.
