Well guess what. Since the Canadian winter gave me a break today I decided to maiden my Vibe. After reading so much the recent months and quadruppel checking everything I decided this was the day. Well what shall I say. Started her up and and... hovered! Thats it! What a amazing machine, it just sat there hovering on the same spot, awsome!!No Vibe humm or anything, smooth as silk. Then I took her for a spin and man that thing flies like a homesick angel.I have been flying Evos in the past and still do, I love my Evo 50 but this Vibe is like a Biturbo Porsche 911 just fast and precise. Great I already love it!Anyway thanks for the input guys and I will follow this Forum closely.

Regards Pete

Fine, congrats.

I hope you will enjoy it a long time.

Mine flew awesome the first flights too.
But since I have got the hum (and it actually seems uncureable and persisting) I lost any joy. Therefore I prefer flying all of my 90`s (Vibe 90 included) over the Vibe 50.

Um the Hum is fixable.. there are several threads here that go into great detail on multiple fixes. biggest ones are replace the tail blades with much smaller.. 85-92s and realign, motor TT, and Clutch,
also mine was caused by just a TINY tweak in the tail output shaft.. invisible to the eye but still enough to cause a vibe.

in other words tear her town and realign and replace any tail pieces in question or the entire thing boom and all.

some have noted that their booms were ever so tweaked and were causing the TT to resonate.

Hi
Someone said that the TT bearing hat play in the rubberinsert and caused the vibe, he put some tape around the bearing so it sits tighter in the insert and the Hum went. Well a freind of mine hat the Hum and we did exactly that and the hum is history.

Lol. At 2600 you have other problems to deal with

I am not sure how high it went butv the motor was boiling and it was screaming I thought it was going to come apart but I shut it down and got it back to terra ferma with no major damage it tweaked the tail pretty good. Like I said not sure how high it reved but it was way higher than normal I had it set at 2050 when it busted loose and it just kept speeding up. Not something I ever want to do again.

thats rather wierd. I lost my sensor twice (I was testing some prototype stuff) and on both occasions I only found out after landing. the engine (a YS) settled on 18500rpm (I was logging the flight onboard). I was however loading up the engine pretty much. So that could have avoided serious overspeeding.

That is wiered. I use a revlock couvenor and if the sensor should fail or come loose the couvenor will shut down and take the throttlecurves from the radio.That means you should have reasonable curves programmed so then nothing should go wrong. But I think I would notice if the revlock fails becasue when its doing its job you can actually hear it look in on the programmen rpm, similar to the Kontronic Jazz when it looks in.

Oh yeah that too... I always use a 100-80-100 curve. No deadly overspeeding there.

I understand your pain. Like Jay said all you can do is start changing stuff.

^^^I had a sensor on a GV-1 start to separate and fall off of the mount. If it doesnt sense for any reason it wont govern rpm and throttle will go to wide open because it thinks it is seeing 0 rpms.
