Just wondering if the 690mm Vblade's load the head a bit more than Align,Edge or newer 690mm main's ?I used alot of the newer blade's but this is the first time trying Vblade's and they seem to load the heli quite a bit,anyone feel the same way?.

Yes, they do load the head more. Reason being they have a wood core and are much stiffer. Newer blades have a foam core and less stiff = Less Load.

Ps. They sound like no other! POP galore!

Cool.I just wanted to be sure it wasn't me.I had a crash with some nice blade's which flew awesome but sense I repaired the heli and put the Vblade's on,I noticed it bogged alot.At first I thought it was the lipo's but watched the crash video and it wasn't close to the way it is now.Yes,they have ALOT of pop,even doing a roll lol..
Here's the crash video and after crash video with same lipo's bot different main blade's,big difference ..

Vblades were for a long time my favourite for immediate response and pop, but as you have discovered they also are likely the most power hungry blade by far that were and are out there in small amounts.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Before there were super fast servos, FBL systems, and Tareq, there were V-Blades.

Their Version 2 (and subsequent ones) have a very agrresive airfoil, wider chord and higher lift vs angle of attack than any other blade then, and maybe even today.

Hotshot pilots did a lot of last second stops near the ground, that would have been 1 foot under with any other blade.

With all that lift comes drag, so you have to run back to low collective to revup and prevent the blades from lagging excessibly and taking out your boom.

BTW, heavy handed stick banging pilots with lots of power in hand, can manage to take their boom with any blade.

They are my favorite 3D blade, for my 2 1/2D flying

More blade area = more pop = more drag = more load

OICU812,
Yup,they pull the power out fast as heck..

MoneyPitVictim,
I did what you said and took pitch out.It made thing's ALOT better but damn,they still load the hell out of it.Im sure if I had the $$ to buy a good power setup I would love them because they fly nice but they will be going soon.Check out the video's,I just looked and she's down to "10 degrees of pitch" .That's nut's and I never ran that low of pitch on any of my heli's ..

AirWolfRC,
I for sure know that now and I also know why people with high powered setup's want these blade's.

Heliguychris,
What motor,ESC and lipo's are you running.Im 100% sure I don't have the $$ for either of them but just wondering?

I have a friend who still has a pair, from back when, and he still flies them and I'd add he still likes them.

The extra pop and rip, is a trade off against lesser stability, and auto performance.

If you fancy yourself as a low to the ground pop and locker, and you havent tried vblades, you are missing out. Flown properly, they make the heli look a heli of a lot more powerful/grunty.

And vblades are loud......... Nothing like the blade fart from a 90MPH reverse hurricane echoing across the countryside at 7am

Have a set of V blade V2 690's on my Vigor CS. Love the way they fly. There is just something about them, the sound and feel. Getting some 690 TST's on a N9 I just bought so looking forward to trying those out.

True, there were not as many good blades then they are today either. I used to fly vblades until they had production issue. Now I fly Curtis and there ard big difference between the two. CYB auto better and you don't insane head speed either and just happen to loose my touch with Vblades. I still have a set and they test blades for now.

I still fly them. I have 600 , 620. First set made. Real light for HC, 550 wide core, first test pair too, 690. 700, 710s. And some real old ones back in the day, yeh. I like the pop they have, if geared right and motor and batteries are good, they don't pull much more that the others, They have the sound like no other,
