I have seen a number of flight reports in this tread and others for the VBar V5 now and it seems to me that it is a bit mixed results. Generally people are positive but some report better tail performance and others the same or worse and the same goes for the cyclic control.

I have noticed that some people just reset the tail/cyclic and otherwise use the same setup while others redo the entire setup. So the question is if anyone has tried both ways and if you get better performance if you start with a new setup?

It looks like V4 and V5 likes different blades. It could be a reason why some people report about bad performance of V5 comparing to V4. My favorite V4 blades does not fly on V5 very good. Now I like the blades which I did not like too much on V4.

Both v4 and v5 love my Edge 693's.

Could there be some left over conflicting settings from v4?

V5.0 Fly better now than V4.0 it seems that you have to let time to the optimizers to settle. They needed 4 flight in my case.

I need to change the rates but flip and roll rate is much more consistent than first flight.

is this the express version or the pro? I have 5.0 mini express and it flies like align 3G. Tail wagging, not really responsive. I did exactly as the set up guide but in reality it doesnt fly right..

is that a new heli? Oh no honey, its the same one w/different stickers.....

Upgraded mini V to V5P from V4. Much better. More solid in all aerobatics and certainly better in tic tocs. Worth the money to me.
