I tested the new 600mm blades today on my L600-Vbar, was waaaay too fast for me, didnt like them, felt unstable because they where that fast (had to dial down the vbar alot)

Good bite though, extremly good, but I'm going back to SAB Reddevils or Edge (with higher pitch since edge has alot less bite)

For anyone that want lightning speed cyclic, those blades are for you.

Currentdraw on the VBlades was about same as Edge & RedDevils.

I also gave the new 600's a ride a buddy just got.
They are FAST, Cyclic crack is there, Governor loading is easily done by poor collective management (I found that out), Head speed increased on my settings over the Radix SB's due to lighter weight.

Overall opinion is if your flying super fast 3D these are going to be the blades, As far as the "V-Blade" crack yes it's back!
If your somewhere in between learning 3D and doing upper level 3D these blades leave little room for error on non aggressive cyclic movement.

In closing, I am not a "3D Master", Yes I can toss it around but found the blades advanced beyond my level of flying. I hope to earn the ability to put them through the paces once I get better at this game.

(I was honest at least!)

I tried the 600mm New Vs as well, same opinion as Mr. Mel. I have no 600mm flybar machine to test on, but honestly did not like the feel of them on flybarless at all. They may however be just fine and bees knees for someone with flybar, I don't know....Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

If I remember correctly there are two new types of V-blades. They both look the same however one flys more radical by means of less weight and a forward CG. I was told that Daniel Jetshin was flying the less radical new style blades with his FBLs Logo's. May be worth checking into.

Yeah, that sounds about right. But again, Bert mentioned that there will eventually be two versions available so anyone running FBL will be able to use the more tame version with good results.

well dont rule out the new blades on flybarless. Like a very good friend said to me, HC , you can make any blade work well on a FBL machine. Tune it is all

Nah, they are too fast, sure you can tune it, but a more stable blade to start with is much better, those V's are too fast, its inheritable unstable (too fast), when you tune it down, you loose resolution.

I purchased these blades from misskimo, and have gotten to fly them a few times on my vibe 90SG. I took off a set of old 710 hologram tip V2 V's to put these on. they deffinetly had a little less pop and made less noise than the flash tip V2's, but they are also definetly V blades, make the same kind of sounds through most maneuvers, and have the same super crisp feel. they are also quite a bit quicker cyclic than my old flash tip V2's. they should as they are 10g lighter than my old V2's 173g vs 183g, and the span wise CG is also about an inch closer to the root. the biggest thing I noticed about the blades was that they don't bog, they pull like V's, but they bog like aligns. this could be because of the slighly different and thinner airfoil on the blades, allong with the shorter cord.

overall these blades flat out rock, if they release these blades I think they will be hugely popular. I recorded a video of me flying them this weekend, I will post it within a day or two.

this year at ircha I saw the new 710's at the experience RC booth, they were not these blades. they were newer ones with metal roots. I don't know if the weight, the airfoil, or the stifness are the same on these blades, nor do I know when they will be out.

He'd be making good money if he got a commission on the older V-Blades constantly being resold. Sooner or later there won't be any left. They'll be museum pieces.Wolves don't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep

In buisness but no new metal rooted blades, etc... Seems just no talk or new of anything new, not many running them anymore. I loved the bite they had, they just suck on FBL helis ...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...
