Logo 10 for 2nd helicopter?
I have learned to fly a Corona, and now am looking to upgrade to a nicer helicopter for the long term; something I can learn to do aerobatics with later on and something that will keep me from going to a .30 size gas heli. I see a lot of great reviews on the Logo 10, but I am concerned about parts support.
My question are:
1. Are parts readily available for this Heli or is it too hard to get them to make this a good choice for a fairly new heli pilot?
2. If this isn't a good choice, what would be the next best option?
3. I have seen a few people mention using a Mega 22/30/2, but not many. Does anyone have any updated opinions of this motor/heli combination?
4. Is the stock version good enough for me to fly awhile before I need to start adding upgrades?

It is a great heli and you will not be sorry. It can do anything you want, and I have seen it do anything you can think of!
The parts issue is a non issue. The few parts I have needed I have always found.
I am using the mega in mine. Few flights so far but it runs great!
You need NO upgrades if you get the US kit. About all you could add are KSJ paddles for harder 3D.

Ditto on the Logo 10. I have 11 flights on mine and sneaked one in this morning. It is a thoroughbred So stable and responsive and much more solid in the air than an Eco 8. I don't see a difference between it and a 30 gasser. I took mine to the field yesterday and the slimmers were so impressed they're SEROUSLY thinking of trying electric and one guy wants to do a 60 sized electric conversion Here's a pic of mine flying.

It is not easy to find an unhappy Logo flier, check this poll: http://www.logoheli.com/LOGObb/viewtopic.php?t=45
And this poll might answer your parts question: http://www.logoheli.com/LOGObb/viewtopic.php?t=46
The rest of the Logo Forum would be good reading too. It's very new, so participation is still building.

The Logo 10 is much more than a "nicer helicopter." It will give you all you need.
About 5 or 6 months ago, I had a horrible accident with my Logo10. I thought parts availability would be a problem and it scared me away. Yesterday I visited Fit'z website (www.fxaeromodels.com) and ordered EVERYTHING I needed to get my heli up and running.
I've been flying my Eco8 every now and then during this time. But there's nothing like a Logo!
I say go for it.

#1 - there are at least thre US sources so parts should not be a problem. If everyone is out of a particular part you can always order from Europe express mail. Generally the US sources will be cheaper or the same price when you take the shipping into account.
#3. The Mega is not the best choice for training, it's efficiency at 18-20 amps is really not very good. For harder flying in the 25 amp average range it is OK. Better choices - Hacker B50-13L thru 15L or Knotronik Fun 600-15 or 18
#4 - Absolutely, I flew mine pretty intensively for an entire year completely stock. At that point I noticed a fair amount of slop in the washout arms and base so I bought upgrades.
