GRINCHMAN...no, the pictured canopy is NOT the one included in the kit. Those were a special canopy painted for Horizon for the Vibe 50 introduction.

I really fancy the idea of getting the Vibe 50 when it comes out, but live in the UK and was told by someone in the trade not to bother as I won't be able to get parts for it?

Anybody in the UK have a few on parts supply from stock in UK?

v58,

that sounds like someone is living in the past. Parts will be available for it. However, speed of delivery will depend on how many units are sold.

Imagine you have a Ferrari Testerossa (or whatever its called) you seriously dont expect to have the same spare parts availabilty from your local dealer as he would have for a Ford Escort ? If you pranged it how long would it take to get the spare parts from Italy ? Its the same with JR parts, they are manufactured as and when required.

It would be great if the JR range had the same popularity as the Rappies etc, but then if everyone had Ferrari's, it doesnt carry the same kudos !

A certain large Heli store in the UK has agreed to carry MOST spares for JR Helis so they should take the typical spares. It may take a bit of time to get up to full speed but this store knows what it is doing.

Whilst I fully accept the comments about a Ferrari and parts availability, I don't think the Vibe 50 falls into this category.

If the price does infact come out somewhere near the $600 mark, and this is maintained in the UK - it will put it at pretty much the same price as a T-rex 600N, but probably with better quality. This would potentially make it a real winner, and certainly not put it in the extreme end of the market like a Ferrari is.

If the price and quality are good, the only thing that would hold back the sales would be potential spares availability and cost of spares.

It looks really good.

Parts will be readily available for the heli. Regarding the canopies you see at IRCHA, those were specially painted for us for the Vibe 50 introduction at the event as Bill mentioned, Bill did a great job for us and they look great! The stock canopy will be white with black windscreen, with decals included.
