Coming out with new machines is not a sign a company is doing good, but rather perhaps trying to get hype to increase low sales. Jr might not be dead, but if you are regular joe on a hobby budget, JR might as well be dead. I checked the parts prices for their.new offerings. You gotta be oretty well off if you want to regular fly and wear out/crash their machines. Too rich for me.

The Forza 600N is not based on a Vibe 50. It's the JR Airskipper 50 Type 2, which I think was only available in Japan, around 2010. The airframe appears 100% identical, it's just updated with new FBL head and metal tail.

Here's review of the Airskipper 50 Type2 vs the Vibe. Interesting to note that the aileron and pitch servos are direct to swash on the Forza, but the servo position hasn't changed, just the linkage lever is removed. The mounting hole in the frame where the original lever used to attached is still there on the Forza:

Comparatif JR Airskipper 50 V2/Vibe 50 - Héli-Bazard
I never said that the Forza 600N (Airskipper Type 2 Pro 2010) is based on a Vibe 50. They were two distinct product lines but they share a lot of parts. This is why I said they were similar.

Fine, but no one even mentioned the Airskipper previously
As no one had mentioned it, I thought it worth pointing out that this Forza is basically a FBL upgrade of the Airskipper 50 Type 2. The Vibe is actually different in most respects, even though there may be some common parts..
