Having seen it up close at some funflys I can say I'm on a waiting list to get it and I can see it becoming my main bird. It's beautiful and looks very well made and straightforward. I hope it lives up to my expectations.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

The JR stuff is usually top of the line. I doubt the Vibe 50 will let us down. Got mine on back order. I really like my JR helis!!!!

It is one sharp looking heli, I really like the canopy design, only downside I hear its probably a tad heavier than the current king of 50's.

Yep, i'm wondering if it's really worth it. REX 600N is very nice.

But, i'm a JR guy so it's a must have.

I'm going to buy one. Crash parts are actually pretty inexpensive, most of the stuff you break in a crash is between Align and TT in price.

I heard it doesn't fly well during periods of high sunspot activity. I'm going to get one in several years when get out of bottom of this solar cycle.

The frames are made of G10. The Airskippers and the Synergy (I believe) also have G10 frames.

Although my 600N is now perfectly dialed in and I'm very happy with it, I'm looking into a Vibe50 also. I really like the canopy design and if the pre-production pics arn't lying, you're going to get one sweet machine for the price... metal bearing blocks, heavy duty clutch assembly and 140 degree ccpm just to mention a few.

Lets see if they managed to shave off weight to compete in therms of "pop" with the 600N

I've heard it can be ordered as belt or tube, but last time I checked Horizon was only showing one part number for the kit. I'd prefer a belt myself.

I'm under the impression that it'll be tube in the US, and belt and tube in the rest of the world. Hopefully they'll offer it both ways here as well.

I tell you what. If that was a 90 size heli I would forget about the Aurora. I REALLY like that design. I wonder if there is any chance of the 90 being updated to this design.
