I would just be happy to receive any feedback from people flying the Mikado Hughes 500 fuse mounted on the Logo 600 SE.

I am planning the following setup:

Kontronik Jive 80HV with a Scorpion HKIII 4035-450KV motor on 4500mAh 10S Lipo packs.

Main Gear 106T and Mod 1, motor pinion 12T.

According to my maths I should be flying at around 1400 RPM for smooth aerobatics:

450 [KV] X 40 [V] X 12 [PT] = 216000 [TPM]

216000 [TPM] / 106 [MT] = 2038 [RRPM]

Finally, setting up the ESC at 70%:

0.7 X 2038 [RRPM] = 1426 [RRPM]

Where:

KV = RPM / V
V = Volt
TPM = Teeth / Minute
PT = Pinion Teeth
MT = Main Gear Teeth
RRPM = Rotor Revolutions Per Minute

How does this setup look to you guys?

Ricci.

Don't change a thing (-: Your set-up looks good.

In one of my Hughes 500's I have a 500kv motor vs. your 450kv, but I use an 11T as opposed to your 12T...works out in the end about the same.

1400 head speed is super for hover and circuits. 1500-1600 works pretty good for smooth 3D. On 4500 packs I get 10 minutes...but I don't 3D the heli, just basic aerobatic stuff at 1500 head speed.

Plus this fuselage isn't carry by Ready Heli.
When I was in IRCHA Mikado has a nice fuselage, that they claim it will be cheaper and it will be available in USA.
I am waiting

@ Dave d
What kind of servos r you running in the 700. I ordered one. It should be here in a couple of weeks. I usually run spectrum 6040 on my 500 and 600 but on the se I have futabas . I'm thinking about jr 8717's but I see some other options as well, mks, Savox and torques.big air 3d pilot. Tic tocs funnels tail slides, snakes and stuff like that. Will the 6040 do it or should I go bigger. Also are you using a separate flight pack or a regulator? Thank John

Actualy I ordered mine through ReadyHeli as a special order (no extra charge for that).

The scale body is pricy, but each dollar is worth.

You can certainly get a Hughes 500 fuse from other brands at half price or less, but with no aerobatic capabilities (this one has a lot of CF in it which gives greater rigidity), and you'll have many time-consuming challenges adapting it to the logo frame as they are not plug & play engineered as the Miakado's one.

It was more convenient for me ordering to RH instead directly to Mikado Germany, because of the placement of the parcel in Chile.

Here are some Today pictures in Santiago:

@ johnnie eagle,

Kyle flies JR8925's on his 700's, but frankly, most any HV high torque servo (say at least 200 oz/in of torque) operated at an HV voltage would likely work fine. I mean, we used to fly the XXtreme 800 on non-HV 8717's @ 6V (about 200 oz/in of torque) without issues, so I feel that's sufficient for the 700.

Kyle has over time used internal ESC BEC's, external BEC's, and a straight 2S pack to power the on-board electronics on his 700's. In the end, he settled on a straight 2S unregulated 1320mah pack, once JR's HV brushless t/r servos became available.

Dave,

How many flights does Kyle get out of the 1320 pack unregulated?

Thank you!!

Flying an average (for Kyle) flight of four minutes with the 700, the system draws on average between 200-250mah per flight. We've done as many as four flights on a pack without issue (total 800-1000mah used out of 1350mah), but generally feel safer at three max.

We have a couple of packs (they are relatively cheap to buy), and always have one on charge, and swap them often.
