Big difference between 480mm blades and 550s. I think there is a place for it in the lineup and I think it will do well.

I want to know if the pinions will be available with a 6mm bore, so the Pyro 600 can be used. Would be perfect on this heli!

Yep, I'm going to get one. Looks to be a very nice heli, and what more can you say, it's a Mikado

That would be a good move.
IMHO - exactly where this heli will fit in.

YES, is the answer!

Haha I normally don't but once parts listing comes out and they release a video I just may, I was looking at this and a 550sx, this is a lot lighter for just a little less blade

I think the idea of this 480 is to have a single pack companion for your 600sx. The 550sx is the single pack version for those wanting a 700 size as their other heli.

I like the idea of having two distinct sizes of helis that are optimized to use the same packs between them.....the only difference being 1 pack or 2.

I LOVE my 550sx, but if I was to do it over, I may opt for a 480 and 600 in the hanger instead. Maybe when all my 5000mah packs start to go, I'll think about it. Or, get a 700

Hmmm?...I like my L400 with the new head block.
Maybe there's room for the L480 to add on my fleet in the near future.

I wouldnt pre order one on the fact Mikado has released zero info on this heli,i cannot understand why they have given no product overview video to stop people potentially buying another brand because of the lack of knowledge of what the 480 spec is.

+1 on that, the specs are online but not seeing any video or more pics is holding me back.

With Mikado's track record I can't see this not being a successful Heli. I am sure vids are coming....

I didnt yet as it see the price of the kit is $100 more than the 550sx. Sure they are offering it for $100 off but that prices it the same as the larger Heli. The super combo looks like the way to go to me- I'm very impressed with the yge vbar gov combo, however the battery packs are not really much cheaper than the ones available for the 550.

I still might get it - it looks bitchin to me and I love to build new heli's. If I could use my 2600 packs I fly my rexy 500 with I would have already ordered it. I have 2 4000 spyder 6 s I use at times in my 550, but those would be at the top of the weight range. I would imagine it flies best on the lighter side. And I have enough loyally points to get a pack...... Now I'm talking myself into it!
