I just got a logo XXX700. It came with a carbon fiber boom. Is this standard with kit? Also from what I read using carbon boom on carbon frame is a bad thing. Do I need to replace boom with alum one? Thanks guys

I run the carbon boom and I know Dahl does and most all team mikado pilots. What makes you think a carbon boom is bad?

Of course you can run it.

Well I tried to find the post I read but can't. I thought it was on a Diabolo might be wrong I read a lot. But though I read that the carbon boom was creating a harmonic vibrating however I just reminder that heli had a belt too.

Do logo 700/800 need to have ground wires from tail to boom to motor mount like the logo 600 belt drive or does the torque eliminate that.

Kyle, Jesse and most team pilots run them and prefer carbon over aluminum boom. I have never heard of any issues other the cracking when you tighten the boom supports or tail box. And even that no one seems worried about it, they beat the crap out of them with no issues. I prefer aluminum because I think it flex's less but Kyle is so weight conscience if it's lighter it's better..
