RealRaptors has them listed as:

"Vibe 50 - Main Frame Set L/R G10 £44.95"

So since it referes to "set" and has the "L/R" I do believe the price is for BOTH frames together

PS: Rbush, u're insane
Your not the first to levy that accusation against me

Real Raptors have already PM'd me saying he does not know if that price is for one or two

'Set' could mean one frame and bolts for one side ??

Come on Mac-man, put us out of our misery

Well at 49 per side it would have to be gold plated. We are talking about G10 here... 25% of the kits price just for the frames? I don't want to believe that.

Yes, but its JR G10!

I dare say if you priced the kit in parts it would cost a million pounds! (an exaggeration but you get the point)

`set' could still be just one side, they're Japanese and sometimes the translations are slightly odd.

Last night when I was looking, it seems that most (all of the ones I looked at) JR helicopter have frame pieces sold as single items.

Positive confirmation from someone in the know is required.

Dude... you just made me spill my coffee

I hope u're wrong... seriously. And even if you arn't... how long do you think it will take our cnc buddies to make an aftermarket carbon frame at half the price of the stock G10? Minutes I guess

Hi Rob
just spoken with MacGregors and the frames are a pair, so if we are lucky, no more pants on head although the photo had me in tears

Tony i have to agree with you, Rob is insane

Thx for the input Andy

That are good news in fact. It makes the thing much more acceptable. I'm definately back in the race for one

Like I said before, the aurora business has taught me not count on anything unless its in my hands. I need to keep my eyes open so I can click on the buy now button when the vibrora hits the streets but on the other hand, you sold your stock of 2.4ghz modules in a matter of minutes so I guess the vibe will be almost the same...

Tony is thinking... preorder, not preorder, preorder, not preorder...

That's REALLY good news Mac-man, I was starting to get very worried that the only 50 I considered worth having, was going to fall over at the last hurdle.

If he is doing this over a pair of frames... what will happen when the vibe 50 kit arrives at his doorstep?

It's pure excitment, bubble bubble, fizz fizz.

Come on JR, I need a Vibe 50 to bring me back down! The doctor has stopped my medication because he does not recognise heliitis as a condition !

Well today I got the last of the parts and pieces for the Vibe 50 build. I have the following, patiently waiting for a kit to arrive.

JR 8717 cyclic
Spartan ds760 gyro
Spektrum VR5203 Voltage Regulator
Aerospire MultiGov Nitro v2.0
XPS 2.4 8-Channel RX
FP EVO RX 2100 2S Lipo
YS 50ST
Hatori SAB muffler
Curtis Youngblood, V Blade TST, and Rotortech blades

It's going to be a straight 8.4v lipo setup direct into the RX on a JR deluxe gold switch. Then the VR5203 between the gyro and throttle servo, regulating down to 5.2v.

The ETA is still 2/14, but that's a even number date which are almost always wrong. I'm hoping it ships by the end of the month. If it doesn't ship by some time in March, I'm ordering the Vibe 90 now and dumping everything in it (also have a YS 91SR laying around).

I think to be honest, JR have done a VERY good job of keeping us up to date via pics and Macgregor etc. As far as we know, the 'final' versions have been approved around the world ( well, at least in the UK). I would think JR are now simply 'kitting' the model up ready for shipment. I do blive it will be on sale within this month.

We can all waite that long without going mad, can't we?
