Guys
I'm converting my Logo 550SX to a 600SX. A pretty easy conversion to do, but I'm keeping the 550 canopy on it for a while. My question to everyone is how does a 600 fly on a 6s battery set-up ??

I'm not interested in 3D flying as I prefer sports and F3C. Im running a Kontrinic 650-103 motor in this heli.

Any thoughts on this ??

Cheers

Garry

If you are planning on just running 6s anyway, why not just go with an SE conversion? That will allow running up to 600mm blades. I think the 600sx is capable of running 625s, but if you're only running 6s, that may be asking a little much of the power system???

I started into Mikado helis with a Logo 550sx and the next year got a 550se. I have since converted the sx to an se just because I prefer the disk loading of the 550se and lower headspeed required.

Unless you have a specific reason to go full 600sx, the 550se might be what you're looking for?

Hi BlueGarry, if you want sport/pattern on 6s, there is no point to converting a 550sx to a 600sx. Convert it to a 550se instead.

The 550se/550sx grips are softer than the 600 grips and allow 600mm blades to flap more, which is better for f3c style flying.

I went from 600 to 550se, I have thousands of flights on the 600, it is not as smooth as the 550se with the same blades and dampeners.

The difference in smoothness is slight, but there are bigger problems like not getting the balance right because 6s batteries are very light and the 550sx canopy is very short.

The 550se is the way to go.

You'll have c/g issues with the 500 canopy and 600 length tail. 500se length works out much better on 6s. I would drop down to a 12T or 13T pinion as well for about 1500-1600rpm.

I disagree with KC as ive and many others in S Africa have run 600mm blades at 2300HS on 500 grips with no problem.

So coming back to your question Bluegarry1 ive been running 6s in my 600 the last few years already as

1-cant afford to replace 12s packs in a crash
2-i like light disc loaded helis
3-im no 3d stick banger

electrics DONT need to auto

My Logo 600 is set up for 6s... although it has 556 blades. Awesome setup and still weighs less than my Trex 550 and e5. I can aslo use standard 6mm motor shafts instead of 5mm like the 550sx model. The big canopy is just a plus for making it more visible in the air and helping with balance.

Lloyd, what you are disagreeing with in my previous post? I was talking about dampening and balancing, not the head speed.

Your comment warrants some response, because yes you can get away with 2300rpm in certain ways....but they are ways the OP is not looking for and obviously you know them already, anyways...

Here's my experience, just mine, others mileage may vary: 2300rpm with heavy 600mm required aftermarket thrust bearings and was bending blade bolts in 60-100 flights beyond use. This was with the original 600 head which was known for crappy thrust bearings.

The 600/14 grips are much stronger grips than the 500/10 grips, if I wanted to run 2500rpm with 550s on a Logo 500, I would skip running the 500 grips, even though many people swear they are fine. "Fine" depends on the weight of the blade and how hard you want to bang it around. I just use the 600 grips for stickbanging, because they can run 2500rpm with even the heaviest 550mm blades.

My real concern is not the thrust bearings failing, that won't result in a crash (hasn't...YET). I worry about bigger things flying off when I go to stickbang on it. Nowadays I only run 2100rpm because I can run that setup with the 500 or 600 head, light or heavy 600mm blades, any flying style, without worry of throwing a blade or shearing a grip.
