Hi Pluto,

Welcome to the forum. Since you're new around here you haven't yet discovered that you cannot get an objective answer to the question you posed on this forum. Everyone has his/her opinion and most can make a compelling argument for their particular machine. I would suggest that you stealth around and glean what general information you can then ask specific questions on things that you aren't clear on. This forum is great for answering specific questions but is nearly useless when it come to "what is better" questions.

But, since your asked, get the Fury Just kidding! Prowl around the forum and ask specific questions and you will make a good selection.

both the vigor cs and fury's are great top of the line helis, there isnt much 2 pick between the two, really its just a personal choice, which ever 1 you choose you wont be dissapointed. I would take capebob's advice, look around, gather information on the two helis, pick which one you think suits you.

good luck.

First of all, welcome to the RR forum and welcome to one of the best tools you'll ever get your hands on....this forum.

The combo you mentioned (8103 and Vigor CS) is, in my opinion, the best going (unless of course, you jump up to a 10X). When I came back into the hobby, that was where I started, first with a Voyager 50 and, shortly thereafter, a Vigor CS. I would recommend you perhaps start out with the standard Vigor and do the CCPM conversion with the kit. Why? If you have plenty of experience behind you, then the belt drive may be a waste of time, however I found out the hard way that belt drives are infinitely cheaper to repair than the shaft drive. Strictly up to you and your wallet, though. I intend to continue flying the conversion with the belt drive for a bit longer, althought the "shafty" is definitely a smoother machine.

Sorry, no info on the Fury. Understand it's a superb machine.

I like both, But I sold my Vigor and went to Fury. Sorry Vigor Fans. But both great Heli's. I will add this
The Vigor is nice to work on and Build, and the Fury, well lets just say it takes some time in the building.

Have also a look at the new Millie III when it comes out on the market (January according to Robbe). Robbes machines are great flying and almost non maintenance. And awesome in FF

FWIW

The Fury is a relatively new design, and not likley to get replaced any time soon.

Rumor has it that the Vigors days are numbered, if you go the Vigor route you might want to wait and see what the new one will look like first.

What rumor is that?

The Vigor CX will be released sometime in the New Year. This updates the CS design with revised frames, canopy, and standard gearing for a 90 size engine. There are other changes too (in the head and levers).

I think the Vigor will be here for the long run. Although I don't own one, several of my friends do. They are an excellent machine (CS version).

For value for money the Fury has it. It has all the bits the CS has and more. I love Robbe, but the Milli was due out mid Dec. and before that it weas due in Oct, see a pattern here.
Also I think the CS is an easier model to fly in an F3C style. The Fury can get up there and move, hence the name.
Also the 3810 is a bit outdated and you may want to get the 9X if you want to go with JR. Personally I wouldn't rule out Futaba as we all know its the GY601 that rules the skys. Mind you the 10X is still considered to be about the best Heli radio there is. Note I said Heli radio. If you want to fly planes then the 10X is a heap of chunk.

"Mind you the 10X is still considered to be the best Heli radio there is."

Considered by whom? Only 10X owners, certainly not the thousands of 9Z owners.

Hey SS, I've got both the Futaba 9Z and two 10X's and, as far as I am concerned, the 9Z would make a nice, but very expensive boat anchor. I hate the damned thing....make me an offer I can't refuse, preferably in JR receivers and servos (I am partial to 8231's).

As to the Vigor going away, I, too have heard the voices from the "zone." And, if you go up to Cyberheli's site, the Vigor's are all listed as discontinued, however I think that may be a bit of misnomer. What I think is going to happen and I think it almost did in the July-August timeframe of last year is that the standard, belt-drive Vigor will be discontinued, the Vigor CS will remain available and possibly be modified and the Vigor CX will hit the streets about hobby-show time next year. My understanding is that the CX will be built around the CSPEC (with the pump) and will incorporate a number of "lessons learned" from CY as well as others. With the Superio and Sylphide only marketed in the far east, something has to break here in the states for JR to remain competitive...my thoughts only.
