Not liking Vblade's at all

After trashing my good main blade's from a crash,I put a set of Vblade's on and not liking them one bit.Had a few guy's tell me to turn the pitch down some which I did but my heli still isn't happy like it was before.I bought 2 different set's of main's so i'll see which one's I like and sale/trade the other 2 set's for the one's I like.These Vblade's are for sure going.Im running the CC ICE 80HV/ Align 700M 510KV motor so I wonder if another motor will help at all useing gov mode/fixed end point's??Right now im running a flat 95% throttle curve.

EDITED::
I looked a min ago and my pitch is at 10 degree's...

Bro,
I just looked a min ago while replying on another thread about these blade's and im down to 10 degrees of pitch .That's crazy LOL.I have never ran this low of pitch on any of my heli's.It feel's like I have 12 degree's of pitch as it sit's .I DO NOT make enough power to use these blade's the way im flying..

Are you still running those old Chinese packs? If so, I suspect you'll have plenty of power when you get those TP 65's in!!!

High Voltage just works better

Pitch

Hey you might want to check your aileron and elevator pitch also. If you went down in you collective pitch range you will need to do it for the 4 corners also. Happy flying..

Vblades are VERY stiff. They do not have the same flex as your typical Radix or Align.. Therefore, they do not require the same amount of pitch to perform the same. 10 deg. is about the same as 12 with other blades. Also, as you have found, they tend to use up more power. This is not because your power system is weak. It's more likely because you are not accustom to the blades. Vblades tend to make people better pilots in my opinion as they are less forgiving and make you learn collective management. Vblades are what started the "pop" or blade fart. Guys would run 12 deg to stop the heli or pop it. then immediately back off so they don't loose power.

I ran Vblades for MANY years. Once I switched to Radix, it was night and day. The heli seamed to be stronger and more forgiving. This actually made me look good

Remember, the Szaboz were flying Vblades back in the day on Raptor nitros. These birds DID NOT have the same power we are seeing on electrics and nitros today. They were making those birds look REALLY good. so it's not the blades, It's the pilot adjusting to them..

Good luck whatever you decide to do..

I will say that the 700M motor is a little down on power compared to the 700MX so that would improve things. You also want to be running set rpm governor mode at 1900, 1950 and 2000, this will give the impression of more power as it won't sound to be bogging. If you are down to 10 degees but it has the response of running 12 degrees with other blades why not try 9 degrees?

60% of the time, it works every time!

Bladestrikes, are you running the ESC in Gov mode? If yes the 95% only dictates the 3rd RPM set within the software. For example: the RPM would be the same at 94% or 90% or even 75%. If already in gov mode raise the gain until you start to hear a stutter sound in the motor under load.

Re: blades
yeah, Radix really does a good job.

You're on the right track there, ignore any advice about managing your power properly and hope the stronger motor will fix things. If it doesn't just strap even MORE power in that bad boy!
