preventative maintenance?
So I've got over three hundred 3d flights on a logo and it flies great. Other than replacing a swash under warranty I've replaced nothing on it. Bolt checks is all the mx I've done.

Should I just keep going or what? I believe this will eventually catch up but its hard to know where to wrench on when things are fine. Links seem fine but do they have a life limit? Should I replace links? Dampers? No shaking but should I be doing something?

Great bird. .. standard non sx logo 600.

at around 200 flights (plus however many were already on the used airframe) i did have my tail pushrod guide start rubbing a spot in my pushrod. it wore the CF down far enough that it induced a serious vibe that affected the vbar. keep an eye on that. aside from that just keep an eye/ear on the bearings for notchiness. that's about all that wears out on these things.if it ain't broke, break it.

Fly harder, crash more, and never have to worry about preventative maintenance.

Works for me, anyway.

Make sure you check your C clip on the bottom of your main shaft. I had one on my 400SE break while flying it and the main gear came out in flight and it's the same size C clip on on my 600SE. Other than that I have had zero issues with my logo's.RIP Roman

Get a snap ring pliers from any hardware store.

A good snap ring pliers makes the job even easier. I had a Channel Lock brand snap ring pliers with adjustable tips and it was a piece of junk. It couldn't hold the tips in position under load. Then I got a Knipex and it works perfectly.

IMO at some point you should verify the tail bearings are ok. ( this requires disassembly) My 600 had flown for about a year and a half then one of the bearings failed in flight. I believe the quick UK 'upgrade' tail hub had some part to this, but another good idea to keep it together longer is check your logs every now and then, also use the spectrum analyzer to balance the tail. The proper balance will help the bearings last longer. (& it'll fly better)RPM is your friend..................................until you crash

With the pinion engaged I don't see how the main gear will fall off if it is a Logo 500 or above with the herringbone gears.

I think the c-clip on these models just holds the main gear until the pinion has been meshed.

As for maintenance the thrust bearing need re-greasing but at what interval I cannot say. Also check the belt for wear and tear.

After 5 years of service I had a ball back out of the swash last weekend so I would recommend you check them.

I took the opportunity to check the main shaft bearings and one was a little notchy and the bearings in one of the belt pulleys didn't spin freely so I changed them.

I have now fitted a Quick UK swash which cost less and uses a M3 instead of M2.5 thread.

What a rare post but yet common in the Logo world. Logos require next to nothing ever in comparison to many helis I've owned. Being a long time Logo head but yet curious I've tried the Goblin rage & many others...and quickly turned away since I spent more time repairing crap failing in flight rather then flying.

Conclusion: keep flying what works and works well you'll be a lot better pilot and have a thicker wallet in the end as well.
...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...
