Is this heli all its made out to be? I have flown everything from a Raptor 50SE, Fury Tempest 3D, and Hirobo but I have not yet flown a JR helicopter. Are there any Vibe or CS flyers out there that can help me in my decision?

Thanks

I'm no help as I've never owned either...

But if you do a search on the Vigor you'll find a lot of pluses and minuses to the machine.

Many of the minuses, like the flybar problem, were addressed with the Vibe.

Prices are probably similar.

Like I have posted in past. I loved the feel of my CS over Tempest and 3DNT. I have flown Raptor std. once (not mine) so my opinion does not count for much but it did not have the "feel" I like. When I got the Vibe it took me 2 weekends to get used to the more responsive feel (bare in mind my CS was old and worn out) The Vibe can be twice the price and I will still buy it. It is more than what I expected. That is me, you will get someone else that will say the same but he loves the Tempest and somone else the 3DNT and someone else the Raptor.... soooo where does this leave you????? We are not all the same and do not like the same things in live. Vibe gets my vote - that is for sure.

If any one say the one is better than the other --- well, I think he is brave. They are all good, just different.

I envy the people that love the Raptor "feel" - they fly what they want at a cheaper price

Get a Vibe, if you do not like it, I will buy it from you for 1/2 price

Having built 3 Vibes in the last few weeks i can say 100% for sure it is a very high quality kit. I have yet to fly one, but I am betting it is much like my old Vigor CS, as it was just about a Vibe anyway. But even better because all of the goodies one could want are in the box. I know I was pretty impressed with the kit.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

Buzzin Brian - You built it so you know how much it "looks" the same as the CS. Do not lett this fool you. I was also under the impression that it will fly a lot like the CS - well.... I could not believe how much better it flies. Do not ask me why but it is a huge differance. The fact that my CS was very old and worn out (slop) will have an influace on it but I can not remember my CS ever being so agile or feel so powerfull.

YES YES YES... same motor, same blades, same gearing... can not be more powerfull - he he he ha ha ha Fly one and you will feel what, not only me, mean. It feels more powelfull end of discussion

I have no problem beleiving you at all. It is a very nice heli, and the design was done very well. I would love to fly one, but I think the guy I built them for would likely not like getting them back all oily. Not that they will not be that way VERY soon anyway. And stay that way for the duration of their lives. Which I hope is not a short one. But it could be. Lets just say they will see the highest end of holy crap flying.

So why don't they put a rear tank on the Vibe?

Beleive it or not the tank in front is not that big of a deal after you get use to it. I have owned several 90 size machines, and only one had the tank in the rear, and that would be my Raptor 90. And to be honest I didn't find it to fly any different than any of the others where the tank location was concerned. But then again I don't keep them straight and level for long. Why not? Because it works just fine where it is. That would be my guess.

The only heli around here with tank at back is Raptor and as far as I can gather they all have running lean problems at end of flight (low tank) Need presurised system. Also no glo extension on my Vibe. JR (Curtis), PLEASE leave the tank where it is!!! I have to do a short hover in front of me to check fuel level and Raptor can do a fly-by Horaaa!! Yipeee!!
