I wonder if they'll make the parts available for those of us in the US to convert it to a belt..

First units are going to be TT. Only the next batch will have belt as an option.

I prefer a TT anyway

Yes, if its only say .5 lbs heavier max and parts pricing is 10% to 15% more on average if your getting quality pieces then it will have its place. For me I could see it having a place with JR fans and also someone who wants to distinguing themselves from the sea of Rappys and Rex's out there.

I doubt it will be out before christmas... It would be nice though. I already convinced the other half she should give me one of those if she really want to make me happy

The Aurora experience has tought me something very valuable... don't count on a heli unless the mailman rings at your door bell with the box in his hands.

So even though I don't even dare to compare JR to what-was-it-called?... I'll believe the predictions when the heli is in my hands and not before.

Isn't futaba delaying it's FASST modules every month now?

I've seen one fly a few times at the charmounth flyin. looks good, flys great, I will not be getting one. Any price difference between the vibe 50 and t-rex 600 will not be worth it as they are both great machines and probably the future of 50 size for a while. But it's a very nice machine

If the Vibe 90 is anything to go by, in the UK most of the major online stockist seem to have good spares backup. Midlands, Fast-Lad, Real Raptors to name but a few, it's part of the reason the Vibe 90 was my final choice for my new ship.

Hooked on Align

Probably right there.

As for parts support, Every part ive wanted for my VIBE90 has been in stock and delivered next day.

That's from Real-Raptors, and i assume they will support the 50 the same.
