I resisted vBar for a long time. I thought, "oh, it can't have that much power, oh, it can't be that efficient."

Then I put a miniVbar on a Protos... wow did/does it have power. I still thought it felt disconnected though.

Despite this I bought a Logo 600 and flew it side by side with a Vibe 50 for quite a while so I had plenty of data points... it was awesome. Somewhere in there I updated to 5.0. Holy crap. I mean it, unbelievable... all the FB feel with half the parts (5 total links!!!), uber-tunability (w/o $40 paddles), incredible power (fastest heli at the field), and super efficiency (nitro length flights at 1/3 the cost per flight).

Bought another Logo600 swinging 690mm blades. Unreal.

You guys couldn't pry these FBL helis out of my cold dead hands. If some clown thinks that I fly FBL now because some "pros" do, I DARE you to come fly one of my Logos. The power, efficiency (also from the Logo's light weight), and true-ness are off the hook. I am just in love, almost to an unhealthy degree.

I spent countless hours learning all the nuances of FB helis... delta, damping, weights, lengths, all that crap. I am kinda the setup guru at my field and, yes, I'm a geek with Physics degrees and a professional "full scale" pilot for those gents on here that seem to require badges on the chest for an opinion to count. My opinion: All wasted time... I regret ever learning it. Should been flying a vBar instead.

If anyone wants a FB Vibe, write me.

+1 or Sillyness's story.

I had a prety similar experience, my only difference is that I already have sold all my FB machines...

Is it me or this time the ground was higher than last time??

I can find the money to go FBL, cant find the time to learn how to setup and fly again though.

60% of the time, it works every time!

A new guy can set up vBar 5.0 in an evening. I watched another guy at the RC field completely convert to BeastX FBL in front of us all... first time ever... took him a couple hours... flies awesome.
