ive noticed that the vigor cs could take any motor from a 60 to a 90
can you do this with a vibe as well? ive also noticed that the fury tempest is the same .im asking becouse ive got a brand new vibe wich i havent put a motor in yet and as im still learning ive been told by the guys at my club that the vibe 90 is too much heli for me and i should sell it and get a 60 .if i cant put the 60 in my vibe i might consider a trade. my vibe is brand new and hasnt even had a motor in it yet it also has 700 mm zigsaw carbon blades and has been built very carefully by a freind who has been flying and building helis for 15 years .i will only trade one of the following which must be in perfect condition .jr sulphide 50,fury tempest,fury extreme or expert .if no one is interested ill sell it in the classified section cheers

Put a 90 in it and just run max throttle less than 100% to simulate the 60 size engine.

This will teach you collective management without have to purchase stuff twice.

Bigger helis are actually easier to learn on. Just don't pop the throttle.

It sounds like the "guys" at your field are just a little jealous.

You should keep in mind that a 90 size heli is JUST a stretched out 60 with bigger blades and motor. Put what you want in it, 60, 70, 80 or 90 and fly it. This way you can kill the jealous folks with the fact that the "newbie" is flying a VIBE!!

Don't come off the throttle untill you see your GOD!

If you are still learning, I think the guys in your club may have the right idea about steering you away from the 90. Couple of reasons why. You don't mention where you are in your learning, but if you are still in the hovering and forward flight stages, there is a good chance that as you progress you will have some run ins with mother earth. With a 90 size ship, this can become quite expensive. If you have deep pockets, then don't worry about it, but if you don't, there are cheaper ways to learn the basics. Second reason to steer away from the 90's is the fact that they down the fuel in a hurry. Again, not a problem if you have deep pockets.

Have you considered a 50 size machine to learn on for a bit before you go for the big machine?

I would suggest the 50, too, however he said he already bought the Vibe.

With one crash you could buy an EVO instead of a repair bill.

thanks for the advice guys .all the guys at my club fly raptor 50's
and i think there a bit biased . as any time you talk about getting a different heli such as a fury,vibe or sulphide they try to talk you out of it and say a raptor is all you need .ive already got a raptor 30v2 and as much as it fly's nice the raptors just dont do it for me like the high end machines do and if you add up the cost of the hopup parts you end up buying for the raptors, i think your much better off just buying something like a vibe,sulphide or tempest which already have all the goodies on them

I don't think they are biased......probably just trying to keep you in the hobby long term. If you really like the high end stuff then by all means go for it. Just be prepared for some high costs down the road if you dirt nap it.

If you want something different from the Raptor 50's, why not try an Evo 50 from Hirobo. With a new pair of Infinavation dampners and maybe a delrin main gear (which even that is really not required) you'd be good to go.

I learned a lot with a MinAir Pro and a Fury, both with 60's in them. Like the Vibe, the bigger machines are easier to learn with, but be prepared for higher crash costs.

You are right about buying decent over upgrading. A Fury is lovely machine to fly.
Put a 90 in the vibe but leave it on the shelf for a while. I have seen many a flyer get a high end machine and then realise that whilst they are great to fly, are expensive to smack and hence don't learn as quickly.

Just keep flogging the R30 in standard form, theres no reason to upgrade it. It will last you till you can fly backward inverted circuits with confidence. Once you get through the smacking every few weeks phase, break out the Vibe and fly the hell out of it.

A few helis, this and that

If I already had a good 90 size machine, with full metal head and tail, I wouldn't sell it and I would just put training gear or similar (like 1 carbon rod perpendicular to the heli to protect the blades from touching the ground - works perfectly for me and is a great last line of defence, I still fly with it), so I would put a training gear on and advance gradually as with any other ship. Can you adjust phasing in vibe? Does it have play in washout? If you can and it doesn't then it's perfect.
I would install FAI standard/stable blades on it not 3D, heavier paddles/weights and would just enjoy it. Yes it will cost more on fuel, but heck selling it and buying something less seams like a lot of work.
