What is the difference between a Mini Vbar and the big un. With all else being the same and using a Jive ESC would I notice the difference? For us mere mortals of course!

You would not notice a difference.
The full size is just less vulnerable to vibrations.

For what it's worth, I've been running the new Mini V-Bar (blueline) on a TREX 700 Nitro and it works great, sitting on top of some Zeal tape on the gyro sensor tray.

I'll likely upgrade to the new full size V-Bar when it comes out, just thought I'd try the Mini just for fun.

The price is good too, in combination with a Logo kit it definitely offsets the cost of a Jive ESC.

Now, the latest batch of FBL electronics will have internal governors. Do we expect to have variations in how well these govs perform? To me it's entirely possible that the Jive ESC may still be a better governor than the upcoming Vbar's internal gov. Or a Total G may have a better governor than a Castle HV ESC or worse, food for thought, right?
