Well one of my 500's time was up today. I don't know why, but I feel better when it is a spectacular crash. It went in at about 100 nose first exploding on impact. The only thing left of the airframe is the tail boom and canopy mounts. The tail boom ejected clean as designed. The airframe really did a great job of protecting the electronics. Only lost the tail servo. The question is what helis next? I am a fan of all Logos so the 480 would be good. The HD cell price has come way down so I think I may have to try it. The problem I have is I need to make use of these mini servos. Any recommendations?

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D.

I have the control. I can't go wrong with the 480, but the price of the Cell keeps tempting me. Anyone flown both?

Logo 600 setup as a 550 gets my vote. Huge air presence, larger canopy, still as light as other popular 550s from various manufacturers (lighter than my Trex and Synergy 550s) and can run standard 6mm motors without modifications.

The 480 is great too, just not as many options as helis running standard servos and more popular blade sizes. Awesome size though, motor and lipos stay cool and has plenty of power for anything you throw at it.

I love my logo 600. The 480 would likely suit you if that's the size you want. But a 600 is perfect size imo

I like bigger helis too. I am really missing my 600SX. I had the original and it was one sweat bird. One problem I have is that I have servos, motor, esc and BEC size specific. The other thing is that I prefer the original paint scheme and it costs as much as a 690SX which I have yet to try. I have just watched a few videos of the Cell 500 and it sounds kind of whiny.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D.
