I fly the hyperion carbons on my SE and love them, but i am curious about the new 325 v-blades. was hoping there was someone who flies aggressive 3d that has flown them both to see if there is a reason for me to switch, or at least to spend the 55 to try them. thanks

Both are nice blades. I Think you may like the V's more, but they are very stiff, which will help to bog the head down more than a set of hyperions. IMO, the V's feel alot like the new align real carbon fiber 325 blades.. but a little stiffer even.

The V's do produce a very nice cyclic response time, and are very "snappy". "rebound" will suffer with stiffer blades, but cyclic response will increase. The V's are probably the stiffest Trex blades on the market. You might also try the KOK's for another great set of blades from Modefo's (my personal favorite blade so far..)

i haven't flown hyperions on my heli aggressively, but i have flown them gently on a buddies heli. i personally fly vblades on my se with a very aggressive setup. vblades are simply awesome, they make the heli very smooth and give crisp response.

The Hyperions totally out perform the Vblades... The Hyperions flip..roll much faster than the Vblades. On a 3s setup the head speed increased about 260 rpm on the Hyperions after we took off the Vblades.... This is with the new Align paddles and a Medusa 28-32-3400 with 12t pinion on a TP 3S 2070.

Vblades HS 2900.
Hyperions HS 3160.

Night and Day...!!!!

Keep your eyes out for a new set of blades that should be circulating real soon. Radix of course. And they are SWEET! I hope to be giving a set a try here REAL soon.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

I talked with Curtis at IRCHA... the RADIX blades for the T-Rex where not finalized... I suggested 2 blades.. one heavy for auto's and one lighter for a "Hyperion feel"... I'm waiting anxiously for the Radix....

Is there any difference between the branded and unbranded Hyperion blades? The only thing I know is the unbranded can easily break upon impact. how about the performance?

i fly with hyperion blades real and unbranded cant tell the difference. theyre great, they just suck at autoing compared to the VB's. the price is right. i cracked my real ones before my unbranded.

i tried the Vblades and i didnt like them. dont get me wrong, the Vblades are damn good blades, but not for me. the vblades are soo stiff and it makes the heli feel extremely 'slippery' especially in 3d flight. that is GOOD if you are doing hard, continuous, and sharp 3d, but i didnt like that feel.

'slippery'
I got that SAME EXACT feeling with the new align real CF 325's. I guess the align real CF 325's would be the closest thing to the V's out there.

Just as you describe it, I also thought they felt "slippery"..
as in the heli had a tendancy to want to keep moving, and slip in and out of tricks. An odd feeling, but I know what you mean there! Thats the word I was looking for to use, just couldn't place it It slipped my toungue..

For those that like the hyperions.. consider giving the KOK's a shot. They have more lift, with lots of cyclic and loads of "springy rebound" for tic tocs. (like the hyperions.. nice and flexible)
