Welp, I have a Mini Vbar on the way

Is it picky about mounting tape? It will go on my 450 Pro. I have 3m tape handy. Not sure if mine is coming with any, I bought it off the classifieds.

I'm looking forward to trying it out. My 7200bx is as dialed in as possible. I want to see how they compare

Depends on the version of the Vbar.
The black one is somewhat sensitive.
The blue one uses fairly stiff foam mounting tape.

If you skip me I can't play!

I have a blue one coming. Would 3m tape be okay or should I use something else?

It should work. Like I said the blue comes originally from Mikado with some very stiff foam mounting tape.

Otherwise you may be able to use steering servo mounting tape for r/c cars.

Thanks, I'll give the 3m a try first. Can't wait, Vbar app is loaded and ready

I say start by using the tape included with the V-Bar.

I would, but I got this from the classifieds

I am not sure if it is coming with any tape.

Two layers of 3m 4011 exterior mounting tape has always great for everything I have used it on. Plus its easy to remove without any leftover residue.
