Hi,

I like doing acrobatics with my Raptor 50. I want a JR replacment. I was thinking Air Skipper 50.

I know it's not a 3D machine, but how much can be done with it before it says no more??

Flips, rolls, hard fast loops, queben 8's, tick tocks ???

Thanks

I do pretty much all of that with my AS50 and it's fine, as long as you've got it set up O.K. with a good engine and blades.

However, why not hold on for just a few more months and go for the new Vibe 50. I recon it'll be just what you're looking for, and it's JR too !!

Cheers

I'm getting the Vibe 50 anyway. I just want the "the JR experience" before I get my vibe. I have the chance to get a Skipper now. I will then sell my Titan. I don't know what I will do with the Skipper when the Vibe is here

If you fly with stock paddles , the machine will be flying like F3C . If you replace them with stubz , it will be a softcore 3D helicopter. You can do all of the moves that you have mentioned even pirouetting flips...

JR Vibe 90 , Sylphide 90 C , JR Vibe 50 , JR AS 50 , T-rex SE V2 , Raptor 50 Titan

I wish I had more experience with the standard Airskipper to really comment but I can however add that I got alot of sticktime on a mate of mine's AS50 with the JR upgraded full metal head, this is the one that comes on the new upgraded version of the Skippy 50 too. What was that one? Airskipper .50 CE I think? With this setup you'll do pretty much anything with it from tic tocs to piroflips easy. There was a video somewhere online of a 'better' pilot flying a stock AS50 pretty hard, I'll check what it's called tonight at home and see if I can't find the link to it.

Either way the AS50 is a really worthwile machine to own if you're willing to go the extra mile to get proper equipment on it. By this I simply mean a decent governer like the CSM Revlocks, decent blades like Radix SB's, a muscle pipe 5 and of course the all important OS .50 Hyper. You'll end up keeping the Skippy even if you get a Vibe .50 trust me.

I understand the AS50 I'm getting has metal grips, Quick UK swash and a JR metal tail pitch slider?

I will be fitting the gear I have in my Titan:-

Hyper,
Zimmy,
401/9254
X3 JR8417
X1 9254
Rev Max
30% youngblood fuel
SAB 620's
SAB 23g paddles,
SAD tail's

I think this is a very good set up for any high end 50 ???

Sounds like the stock rotor head to me. Should be fine for the mild stuff no doubt just be sure to put the hard dampers in there.

Gyro and servos look good. Governer looks good. I just don't know much about the Zimmerman or the blades/paddles/tail blades to comment on those. But hey if you're buying second hand I suppose the setup should get you by for the time being. Later you can look at a fullblown Radix blade/paddle setup.
