For those who own a 690sx, what is your RTF weight? I see that Mikado specs it at 4.8kg (10.58lb). Specifically, Kyle's 690sx seems to perform very well and I'm curious how the weight of his setup compares to others.

Kyle has flown the 690SX with packs ranging from 3700mah to 5500mah (all using a 2S 1350mah RX packs)...so any significant weight variations from Futura SE's 690SX are only due to the batteries.

Kyle's comments are that the larger batteries (5000/5500mah) don't really add much to the "total package" of the 690SX...unless you just want it heavier for personal reasons or are looking for the extra flight time.

With the 3700mah packs, (and I quote Kyle here), "It's just stupid light". To each their own of course

So, the best overall fit for the machine (at least from Kyle's perspective), are packs in the 4000-4500mah range.

Silent because yes, not much to report when you fly a heli 412+ times and only have to change out a ball link or two. Also, not much to talk about when you don't need to upgrade or buy a new heli frequently. When my Logo goes in or wears out (might take a while) I'll no doubt buy another with very little fanfare posted here.

Lots of great discussion here, Thanks to everyone for your input! This serves to remind me that anytime a new model is introduced to the market there are those who like it and those who don’t. The ones who don’t usually tend to be more bold about offering their opinion in more places and on a more frequent basis. (people are much quicker to complain than they are to compliment)

While those who like it tend to just buy it, fly it and don’t speak unless spoken to. Everyone has his/her own specific reasons as to why they either approve or disapprove of said model.

I have been studying the logo 690sx for a couple of weeks now through various means. I have downloaded the manual, I have read everything I could find both negative and positive on the forums, I have watched every logo 690sx video on youtube and vimeo and I have actually spoken to a couple of different pilots who own and fly the 690sx via text and telephone. After all my research and self examination of my own personal flying style and what I need and want out of a model. I have come to the conclusion this model will be my next helicopter. I actually expect it will become my “go to” bird on a regular basis and will give my other helicopters an extended rest.

I am not going to list my preferences but I will say this particular helicopter seems to meet them all. My Logo 690sx should be on my doorstep sometime next week. It will be some time before I complete her to the point of getting in the air however. I am planning to use the VControl radio for this model (also for some very specific reasons) and I won’t have the funds to complete this project for about a month.

Soooooo, what do yall think about the V-Control radio?

VControl? Awesome

Like you, I got the 690sx and VControl together. I am completely satisfied with both purchases.

There are two specific functions I am interested in with the VControl. Model sharing and the MAH counter. I know I must purchase an additional sensor for the MAH counter. Have you experimented with the model sharing function? This has huge promise for me and my son! I would guess the gimbals are similar to my 14sg in quality. Am I correct on this?

Thanks!

I haven't used the model sharing functionality as no one else in my area has a VControl. I came from using a JR 12X and the gimbals on the VBC are just as smooth. I also moved to using the mah telemetry as soon as that came out. Flying via mahs used versus a timer is soooo much better on an e-heli. Depending on head speed and how hard you are flying, flight time can vary drastically. With the mah telemetry, you can get the maximum flight time and never over discharge your packs.

My thoughts exactly KevinB

So the alarm can be set to coincide with the MAH counter?

Yes. I set my packs to warn me at 30% remaining. That gives me plenty of time to come in and land after the alarm goes off and still never go past 80% used.
