I still have mine. Multiple kits. Believe most parts are still available. Nothing wrong with the Vibe.

Sorry haven't checked in in awhile there DCFlyer. I have many orphaned helis now. Two Avant Auroras and three Avant Mostros.

Flower power! Nice I like it. Looks like a successful day of flying. How do you like it FBL?

I still can not believe how much power loss the flybar brings 😲. Soo much power right now. Though i still have some tweaking to do on the spirit fbl and i have some vibe issues that i have to eliminate. I was also thinking of upgrading my motor (kme .60) carb to the os 55hz carb. Rc japan has it in atock, now i just need the info if the 55 carb is the same dimensions as 50 carb and then im pulling the trigger.





Edit: Also need a new pair of blades, runnig the old FB edge atm.

Another great weekend. Had some problems on saturday with vibrations, so i changed gyro pad. Working ok-ish now. But my skid came loose, it was on the ground though

Also tried to richen up the engine. Didn't notice any power drop, and now its smoking like crazy, i like it in the morning, the whole valley was covered in smoke

An awesome flying mate was cleaning out his garage and gave me this new sealed kit. I don't know much about it but I am keen to build a nice classic.

Decided to update my Vibe's electronics during the winter months to complement the new OS55hzr. I fully rewired it and also replaced links, tail case components and installed new gears and bearings in the mainshaft blocks. Should be good to go for this season.

Removed from the machine:
-DSM2 sat
-AR7000rx
-Microbeast
Fromeco voltage regulator
-5200mah Lion battery
-JR 8311 / Futaba 9252 servos

Replaced with:
-ProModeler HV servos. Coreless 215oz cyclics and Brushless tail.
-AR7200bx
-DSMX sat
-2500Mah Lipo


Cleaned up a bunch of the wiring and also added a Spektrum backplate sensor as I plan to run the machine governed this time around with the change to the AR7200bx. Should be much stronger.

Also looking forward to trying out these servos. They really seem like very high quality units for a very reasonable cost. They come with excellent stainless hardware which I used instead of the old and tired screws. Looks much better. Lastly, replaced the servo horns with Secraft units. New swashplate installed as well. Good to go.

Had a little crash last year (needed to replace the skids, nothing more - glow plug came loose in the flight ) and it really bummed me out for some reason. It was the same day that i also crashed my protos 500. The motivation for flying helis was really down, the winter was coming and i just found more and more excuses not to repair them both. Until today. Got the parts for the vibe in the mail, i was soo excited . Should be a fine weekend, pictures incoming
