The XXtreme versions of Mikado's Logo helicopter line-up are getting smaller. Mikado initially indulged large electric heli fans with their 800-size behemoth the Logo 800 XXtreme a couple of years ago. Now they're interested in the smaller end of the spectrum. Not quite the ultra-micro market, but smaller by Logo helicopter standards -- roughly the size of a stretched 500-sized electric -- the company just announced the Logo 480 XXtreme.

The all new design is based on the larger 700 and 800 XXtreme helicopters with 470-ish mm main blades (Edge 473's). Kits will be available in base-kit (including an airbrushed fiberglass canopy like the larger 700/800 helis plus Edge main and tail blades), the Scorpion Motor Combo version which will include the Scorpion HKII 4015-1070, and the Super Combo wich will come with the motor, Savox servos all around (Savox SH1250MG x3, SH1290MG x1), a YGE 90 ESC, and a Mini V-bar Blueline Express FBL unit.

All kits are currently designated with a December 2013 availability. Pricing in the US through ReadyHeli.com, where all kits are sold, will be $650, $700, and $1,170 for the base, motor-combo, and super-combos respectively.
