I have used both, and I find that the 95mm V Paddles are the way to go. They are super smooth, and still really fast. Even in fast forward flight, they are extremely stable. I would go with them.

i heard that Tim got a new router bit and is hacking off about 3mm from the leading edge of the white paddles included in the kit. if i understand correctly they fly every bit as good as the V-paddles.

I've try both i think for hard 3D you have to use the V-Blades
otherwise the one came with the kit is fine..

Somebody asked about flybar weights. For v-paddles they are recomended. They should be fine without them.

If you want to use weights then putting them toward the main rotor makes the helicopter have aquicker response and moving them up to the paddles stabilizes the heli better. The v-paddles are about 20g which are good for 3D. The wieghts at the paddles should make the heli smoother if you have a problem with it.

IMO the stock paddles, stock or modded by me are faster than the V-Paddles, but the V-Paddles bite harder off center and still remain smooth which is what I prefer. The V's are plenty fast though. I fly them.

TO conclude this, both would work fine, but the V's are slightly more stable in FFF then the older white paddles, new ones should be nearly the same.
