Mikado is releasing a new VBAR unit called the Neo within the next month or two.

I strongly suspect that people are trying to dump all their spare/extra/redundant vbars before the price of the used vbars plummet as people flood the market with their older units to upgrade to the new Neos.

That's why I sold an extra that I had...not sure I'll replace them all though.

There may be a whole new group of buyers for the older units though as they will be great for planks using VPlane.

I'm waiting for the release before buying my 700 kit. I really enjoy the current minivbar, and I'm hoping that the neo is leaps and bounds "better" than what I have.

So of course, I have to wait for the guinea pigs to buy it first to see if it's worth it.

Otherwise, I may give the Skookum 540 a shot just to have a different experience.

I am bad about that; have done my mini-v's the same way I did w. the Futaba
401s years ago. The 401 was nothing special, but it just worked, and worked
great. So they ended up on everything I flew, over many years. Now the same
with the mini-v.....on everything I fly.....w. no complaints.

Think I am too much from that old boring thinking, "if it aint broke,don't
.......

But I sure will be watching the reviews on the Neo!!

I hear ya!

Here's my approach. I've been burned too many times in the past by the things that I don't know that I don't know.

If the first beer I had was Budweiser, and the only beer I had was Budweiser, and if I was perfectly happy drinking Budweiser without ever trying something different for that different experience....then I would go my whole life without experiencing the broad range of other beers, many of which are great.

I'm currently perfectly happy with my mini-v. No complaints at all.

However, since I have never tried the 540, or the brain, or the vortex, I have no way of knowing if I'm remaining blissfully in the dark with my Budweiser, when it turns out I'm ignoring some of the delicious Belgian Ales and IPAs out there.

Sure it works, and it works great...but I just have to know if there's something even greater out there that I haven't discovered yet.

JUST HYPE
What more do you want your vbar to do???..its neat and cool, but for the guys that been on this forum for years, and know how to fly, your heli is not really going to fly any better or different. most of the units at this point are using the same technology, just like with cells phones. same concept different look....

The only thing that I think could make it better is the bailout feature other then that it seems perfect

With that said any of my crashes I have had happen so quickly that I would not have been able to make use of the bailout. If I have enough time to switch/engage bailout I have enough time to correct the problem myself

Mabey one day i will actually land one of these things !!

Mikado makes beer?
I didn't even know I didn't know that .

And "The King of Beers", to boot.

If so, then Century must produce fine whines, and no, that is not a spelling typo.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.
