Egg, be aware that mik4052 is not available through RH. That one comes with the older style swash driver.
Yes just looked at your location. This option is not stocked by readyheli. It does Not come with the old swash driver as stated above and it is the cheapest option.

You could still get mik4041 as already stated. This includes all head parts above the swashplate including grips, bearings and spindle. It does not include a swash. If you go with this option you will have a spare spindle, grips and bearings. That is all that differs between the two options.

Part number mik4052 is what you need. If you have a 500 3d then you use your existing main shaft, spindle, swash, grips and bearings. Dampners are harded for vbar.

The other option is mik4041 which is a full head and includes grips and spindle.

I think it has a 5mm shaft in which case you are limited to a 10tooth mod1 pinion only. That will leave you options from 2000rpm to 2250rpm with a jazz or jive. Numbers will vary depending on ESC and governor.

EDIT: It is not a powerful motor by todays standards and you are right on the RPM limit with new generation packs. For sport flying and cool efficient flights I think it will work ok.

As Mel says. Stay clear of the scorpion if using the Jazz80. Not a good match. I couldn't even hover without the jazz shutting down.

No matter what motor you will likely need a heatsink on the Jazz. The hacker works well.

Add the mikado belt tensioner Mik4175 if you haven't already. Also ensure your boom is a tight fit. A layer of box tape on the boom where it sits between the frames can help this. I also put a self taper screw in the boom through the plastic tail case clamp. That should prevent the belt coming loose or skipping.Regards

You can get desirepower, kongpower or outrage as 10s sticks and I'm sure many more. Hyperion were also considering this as an option but I haven't heard much on it lately.

You would be better off with two 5s or two 6s though. It's going to be much easier to charge at over 1c and also cheaper in a crash. Once the packs are same age, rating and cycle life then using two packs will not be an issue. I currently have all 10s but when I need to purchase again it will be dual 5s in future especially with high C charge rates available now and the more powerfull charges being limited in cell count.

What firmware version is your Jive? Have you tried turning the motor to another 'cog' then redo the connection to see if the ESC arms?

One of my two Jives has the older firmware and will not arm every time when I connect the pack. If I rotate the motor ( Scorpion 4025) to another position and retry the connection it will arm. It might take a few attempts. Once it arms it runs fine. It's to do with the way the ESC measures the inductence of the motor or something like that

Hold the centre yoke and lift the helicopter with the blades perpendicular to the boom. Then while holding it by the yoke turn it knife edge so the blades are pointing one towards the floor other towards the ceiling. If you are tail heavy the tail will drop. Nose heavy the nose will drop.

Ensure your pack is secure or it could slide out on the floor!

Double check by turning the Heli through 180degrees which will account for the oneway stopping the Heli from falling in one direction.

I second the regearing option. I have seen this mentioned alot in relation to Hyperion pack. The higher voltage is giving a higher motor RPM and the packs are delivering higher amps to maintain it under load. This is causing the ESC to overamp and shut down. Several plane guys reported burning up ESCs when they switched to Hyperion. There setup was on the edge with their older packs and they didn't run less prop when they switched to hyperions causing ESC failure. Dave from Hyperion has flaged this and warns it may be an issue for those who had borderline headroom in their electronics to begin with.

This is NOT a problem with the packs it just means the battery is no longer the weakest link in the chain as it were. Especially on 3d setups. You still may be over the edge with the 80HV on a lower pinion and might need a 100LV but it's a relatively cheap swap to see if a pinion can fix it. Do also add a heatsink as others have said.

Ya just checked and 4053 is not on ReadyHeli site. It is listed on the Mikado site and also with RealRaptors. Anyway Marshall is right its no harm having extra grips, featherings shaft etc..

The Vbar unit comes with 4 cables to connect to the cyclic and rudder channel outputs of your RX. If you wish you can use a fifth cable (not supplied) to connect between an aux channel on your Rx and the vbar. This allows bank switching from the radio.

Bank switching is like changing your bell/Hiller ratio, paddle weight, flybar length IN FLIGHT. Think of it as up to 4 different settings for the control response of the helicopter which can be switched in the air. Go from a sedate FAI style machine for hovering around to crazy roll rates for 3d just by flicking the switch on your tx.

EDIT: It is also very handy for checking new settings after you have the preset working. Load the preset in one bank. Copy it to another where you can make changes. Then take off in the bank with the preset and fly to a safe height then switch to the bank where you made alterations. If you are not happy with the result you can safely switch back before anything bad happens

get 4053 which is the the upgrade head parts and use your existing grips bearings and feathering shaft.

Also worth getting an extra male plug to male plug servo cable if you want to use more than one bank and switch them in flight.

I would also advise a digital pitch gauge for accurate pitch setup. Your old one will have no flybar to sight against now

The only issue with 8s is you are getting into high voltage ESCs which are typically lower amp rated than the 6s. As your voltage is lower than the norm on these ESCs (most run them on 10s) then you may run into issues with amp draw if you push them hard on a 550 blade heli. Although from what you have said I guess you don't plan to run a crazy headspeed.

You say you want constant headspeed yet in your first post you say you will run 100% on the ESC. Thats not going to work. Leaving that aside I would go with a Scorpion 4025 890Kv and a Jive 80HV or Jazz55-10-32 ESC. A 15tooth pinion would give around 2250 with plenty of headroom for the governor. Edit: 14tooth if you want sub 2200rpm. If you do decide to not run a governor then these pinion choices are out the window. ( I would not recommend 100% flat throttle on this size heli. I know many do it on smaller helis).

I used to run a 500 on 10s A123 (same voltage as 8s lipo) with a tango 45-08 and Jazz 55-10-32. The motor/esc is a very efficient combo but that was pre scorpion which I think are currently the most cost effective option for the Logos.

If you want a 45-08 at a good price send me a PM

that would be my preference and I must stress I have not tried the 890Kv but I do run the 630Kv motors with Jives in both my 600s and think they are great motors.

As for batteries I would look at running the Hyperions two 4s 3300 35C in series.

What Heli, servos? I would not chance it with one wire carrying the load on a 600 with high power servos.

Did you remove the pin in the receiver?

Not sure if this would work but if you have other free channels which are not needed perhaps you could split the master cable with a Y harness and run the extra power to the receiver through the spare channel. Just ensure it is not transmitting a signal which could effect throttle! ( remove signal wire on that half of the Y harness)

I had that motor for a while in my 400 and all I can say is for some reason it will not work with a Jazz ESC. I run Scorpions and Jazz/Jive in all my helis but that particular model motor causes issues.

If you are not running Kontronik then perhaps it will be ok. I'm sure others will comment. I didn't want to change ESC's so I changed motors instead.

I'm not familiar with that motor and ESC but my guess is You need to come back a few teeth on the pinion.

Holding back the motor like that is going to increase current and was likely the cause of things burning up.

I hadn't factored mod1 gears. The difference in flight time will still apply although the actual flight time may differ. The 12s setup on what is a 12s motor should do better. That is providing the 20c 12s pack is in good condition i.e maintains voltage well under load.Regards

Logo600?

If so the power factor wont really come into it at least for 3d as that motor can't be geared for a high enough headspeed on 10s.

So taking that into account and just looking at runtime alone for a similar power requirement then the 12s will likely provide the longest flighttime.

Gearing both machines for similar headspeed:
10s 18tooth 1750rpm
12s 15tooth 1750rpm

Taking an average of 1000watts and 3.5volts per cell as a figure then the amp draw and run time is as follows:

10s pack 28.5amps average draw. with a usable capacity of 3600mAh

This gives about 7 and a half minutes.

12s pack 23.8amps average draw. with a usable capacity of 3416mAh

This gives about 8 and a half minutes.

These are only estimates and are based on the fact you can not setup this heli for 3d with that motor and 600mm blades. So I am using 1000watts as an estimate of power for hovering around and very mild aerobatics.

With a 10 or 12s stick pack you would expect that all cells would be checked at the factory and matched for similar IR. With two packs in series there is no gurantee that the two packs are matched with each other. Two smaller packs with different resistence (which may still be within quality control standards of the manufacturer) have a greater chance of going out of balance.Regards

Did you check the main shaft. If it is bent below the bearing blocks it will cause a wobble in the gear but may still be straight above the mast locking colar so it will not be visible in the head. Just a thought.Regards

the tray is needed with the 4200mAh packs on a 700 to get the CG correct. I think Mel is running a stretched Logo.

If you gear the new packs for the same power then amp draw will go down and flight time will go up. If you want to use the added power available by increasing headspeed or pitch from where you are now then amp draw will go up!

Rumours of a new HV Jive 130amp aside I would pick the 100LV and add a heatsink and all should be fine on 6s.

Not sure if any are using the HV80 on 6s perhaps others might help you out.

They actually do a 7s pack. This is also the rating of there current top of the line charger the 710i. As I have said before I don't think this is a coincidence and is likely the reason for 7s being the max cell count they produce. As they also sell chargers it does not make sence to market packs when they have no charger to support them. That coupled with the 5c charge rate capability means two smaller packs in series can be charged much faster than a single 10s using the NET or DUO chargers.

I agree with Shaun though it would be nice to have the option of 10s sticks but I think it is unlikely.

Luckily my two cellpro 10s chargers can do two sets of 5s as I do plan to go Hyperion when I need new packs. After seeing the performance first hand and for the price it is a no brainer.

Sorry to read that Bill. It's not often I see an all kontronik setup giving problems. Have you got another motor so you can test the ESC?

If the motor somehow developed a short then the ESC could be damaged as well. I would test the ESC first not the motor. You don't want to risk another ESC by connecting a bad motor. Thats if the tango is at fault. If the jazz works with another motor then the tango is likely the culprit.

I have a 45-08 sitting here. If you dont have another motor and want it send me a PM.

Vbar unit reads the software as soon as it is connected if the software is open. If you have multiple vbars then I recommend not opening the software until after the heli is connected. This way you avoid accidental writing of data to the unit.

Of course there is no comparison between the protos and 400vbar. Just as there is likely no comparison between the 400flybar and flybarless. The question related to the flybar version of the 400 and if it's a better 3d machine than the Protos.Regards

Sorry never flown a flybar 400 or flybar protos. I have a flybarless protos on v4 and it is a really nice flying Heli. I prefer it to the l400 flybarless.

I am not sponsored by anyone. I love my logo600s and enjoyed my logo500 both flybarred and flybarless but for me the 400 was a bit of a dissapointment.

If you have a protos and are not happy with the cyclic speed then perhaps you should not rule out flybarless. The protos has a huge cyclic pitch range. I can't see a heavier logo 400 with flybar being faster. Just my opinion and something to consider.

Each case is made to measure. The case above cost in the region of 250 pounds. Various materials, colours and foam thickness as well as extras such as castors and handles will change the price. Best to look for a quote for your own requirements. Its a lot of money for a one off trip. I might have to look at some of the RC Hotels in Corfu and get better use out of it

I have yet to finish work on the interior. I have fitted the boom support block but need to add straps to secure the boom and skids. I also hope to add some other compartments for charger, tx and spares. I am hoping to squeeze a partially dismantled flybarless Protos in there as well to bring with me to IRCHA.

I need to plan it out better a bit closer to the date.

Here are some pics of the interior. Its very sparse at the moment though.

I just received my made to measure Logo600 flight case for airline travel.

I am very impressed with quality and thought I would share a few pics. I am confident it will keep my heli, radio, charger and flight packs safe from over zealous bagage handlers

It holds the fully assembled Logo600 with canopy and blades fitted. It includes a foam boom support and I plan to fit more foam compartments.



I will add more pics when I get it fully padded out. Can't wait for IRCHA

The tail menu seems much easier. Alot of the parameters are now handled automatically.

I converted my Protos to V4. I just loaded the 3.6 to 4 preset which brings forward some of your old settings. I had to redo the mechanical setup as servo centre has been changed for certain servos. I checked that Piro optimisation was working in the correct direction and changed nothing else!

The previous setup was not ideal on my protos. The tail had some wag. I did the trim flight and on the first flight after that the tail was holding well. piros had some bounce back on hard stops. I enabled the tail optimizer function and flew two more packs. The software automatically made adjustments and now the stops are perfect and I have no wag

Thanks for the headsup. It's a pity about the handheld not supporting V4 yet. I have done a trim flight on my protos and got a green light. I will deactivate it now via the software. Thanks again Bud.Regards

Well it's also only fair that people know what they are getting even if it is cheap. I like things symetrical and am one of these people that has to straighten a crooked picture

If you are happy with stencils that are WAY off centre then that's your call. At least now you know BEFORE you buy.

I am not knocking Jags canopy. Just commenting on the wonky one that I got.

Good find 4ever.

I have seen PJs machines flying V4 recently and they look to fly really well. There is no way he improved that much on his own

Thats 1 all PJ LOL

Mine will probably last longer though - too embarrassed to fly it in public LOL

Picked up one of these canopies from Bobby at RRE.

They are twice the weight of the stock canopy. OK for mucking about at the field but it's not one to 'show off'. Maybe the painter had a hangover. His eye was definitely off

Have a look at this:

You get what you pay for I guess. Mikado all the way for me in future.

Has anyone seen these in stock anywhere recently. I have tried the US seller and the usual shops in the UK. They are all out of stock.

Discovered the problem was a slight bow where the two frame halves meet. this resulted in a non level surface which caused the tape to seperate and fail. I used a strip of zeal tape on each frame half and also put a velcro strap over the top for extra security as Talron suggested.

Just had a test flight and no oscillations or other visible problems.

Thanks for the input guys.
Regards
