Will the v bar not fly a 3 bladed head as good or what . When nick maxwell first came out with the 3 bladed head for the e 700 he was flying a mini v bar on his heli . Why then did he switch to the cgy ?

He works for Futaba, and I've never seen him use anything but the CGY. As to which is better, I don't know. I've only flown CGY and Robird.

Nick flew a VBar in the past during a period when the 750 was evolving into its present format. In previous iterations the 750 actually flew better in a three bladed head than a two bladed one, and worked better in two bladed nitro than two bladed electric. As as result of his and Japan's exhaustive testing and engineering efforts in later 2015, the 750 now works exceptionally well in all platforms and effectively competes in performance with anything on the market.

I have been flying 3 blade heads with a vbar for about a year now. Started with the silverline and now the Neo. Vbar works great with these heads. I have never flown a CGY, but Nick can make them do amazing things!!

And might I add that after this weekend, I will be CGY only.

I've been flying vbar for the last 4 years, quite exclusively I will add. This included the last 1.5 years that I have flown a rep for Futaba! So I was not a CGY "fanboy" as some might say. However, with the new v2.0 the cgy750 has me sold! As of this month I am all CGY now and and very happy! I am very pleased with the performance and there is more to come!
That being said, I just set up and flew a similar e700 with three blades head and tail, as in the video above. Mind you it was about as boring as watching paint dry when compared to what Nick can do with it. It was setup with a mini Vbar, and I could not get it to fly very well. Had lots of weird cyclic bobbles and strange behavior that was beyond what I could understand how to fix easily, and I have not taken the time to mess with it. I know of more than one three bladed e700s that flew fine with the miniV, including Nicks at one time, so I'm sure that this thing could be tuned to fly well, but will probably take some work.
Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to try it with a CGY yet, but talking to another e700 three bladed head owner that is using a CGY, I was informed that it flew well with stock CGY settings. Take all this for what it's worth.

Previous 750 firmware needed to be pretty highly tweaked to work well with a three bladed head, so much so that Nick included the .gyr file with his three bladed e700 head. 2.0 tunes as usual and easily with two or three bladed heads.
