I have a Logo 600 set up on 10s packs. My batteries are starting to go, so I thought I would change things up. I can't decide if I should keep it a 600 and go up to 12s or shorten it to a 550 and run one 6s pack on 550s. I just wanted opinions on which one people like that have flown both. I like big air stuff with some 3D. I am leaning towards the 12s 600, but 550s are looking pretty powerful also.

Big air = bigger is better. The larger the heli, the less apt to be pushed around it will be. I own both, the 600 is better for that style of flying between the two.

If you really like big air, put on the 600se boom and belt and bigger blades with the 12S.

I thought about that too, but didn't want to pay for 690 blades.

Go with the 550 on 6S if you want to change things up. The considerably lower weight makes the 550 floaty compared to the 600. It will be easier to do maneuvers like funnels as the heli seems to just float in the air.

Hi

You are overlooking one option...... Get some more 10s packs.

Despite the 12s craze, a Logo 600 on 10s is very good.

For the 12s option, you need batteries and a motor.

For the 550 option, you need 6s batteries, motor, canopy, blades and all the bits to shorten the boom.

I was in your position a few months ago..... Got some 10s batteries.

Admittedly, I still want a 550.... And a 700.... And a 800. But that's got nothing to do with my 600, it is awesome.

Regards
Paul

True. My Logo has 275 flights with no problems, none, zero. Which is good, but if nothing fails or breaks I can't try new things. So, I thought this winter I would give it a face lift. Change things up a bit. After talking with some of my flying buddies they say the same thing though, if it isn't broke don't fix it. It works very well with 10s, so maybe more batteries is the best right now.

If your going the 12s route , your going to want to get a set of 623mm blades.

I built up my first logo 600 on 12s (~1300 grams) packs running edge 603's , performance wasn't stellar.
Sure it went good and tracked like only a logo can but I came from a trex 600 on 8s and wasn't impressed.

After some research and oicu812 suggesting a set of 623 mains , I gave it a go. Not even close to the same machine , smoked that trex all day long - power, speed , and auto hangtime.

After some more reading you can get similar disk loading with 10s and 603's.

Just a thought to ponder.

Jumping to 12s and heavier packs on 603's is going to be a let down I think.

Hi

I thought the grand plan when going to 12s, was to keep the weight the same?

Something like:
10s 4500mAh to 12s 3700mAh
Where they are both about 1400g

Depends on the brand.

My HK 3600 30c pack with HD shrink wrap is 1300 grams

Where my volts 3700 stick is 1100 grams

Easy to tell which pack is in.

I'd think a 10s could be had at 1000g or less

If your running over 1200 g on 603's then it might be a plan to select a new 10s pack that's lighter.

I have never been one to worry about weight, but here is some weights for the current batteries I have and ones I am looking at.

Current set up is Gens Ace 5s 4000mah 1072 grams +/- 5 grams
If I stay 10s Thor 10s 4000mah 1095 grams +/- 5 grams
if I go 12s Gens Ace 6s 3300mah 1078 grams +/- 5 grams

To me those weights are all close enough for me not to notice a difference in flight. I have multiple sets of 600 size blade, so I will sticking to those.

Hi guys

OK, I have been using slightly heavier packs.

I started with Voltz and now Thor 10s 4500mAh @ 1245g
I found the Heli much nice with Edge 623 blades.

FWIW, no need to wait for 12s to run 620s. I love the things on my 10s ship. headspeed of 2200 holds like a champ. and, yes it's almost a whole different level of machine.

if it ain't broke, break it.

623mm
Iam with rcmarty.I was flying my 600sx with 600mm and made the switch over to 623 edge blades-with all else being the same-it was a different heli,tic tocs better,more pop and it seems to track a little better.

+1 ^^^ bigger blades flies unreal.

Get the 550 sx also.

If you go 550 - I have just tried the 6s 4400 packs and love em. $100 a pack (or less on sale ) very floaty, pulls high really fast also. For me my 550 is more relaxing to fly. super quiet. plenty of power. I typically use about 3000 - 3200 mah per 6 minutes. everything is cooler than my 600 10 s after 6.

either way is a win.
