Rumour has it that a rampaging elephant has escaped and has fallen over onto a pallet of boxes marked JR Heli !!
I heard the guy riding the elephant was wearing an Align hat.

Thats the best I've heard so far... I think align doesn't need to worry though. Those helis can't compete. Align would need to spend serious cash in quality parts and quality control and JR would need to find a way of copying the align's head geometry and update the 10 year old mold of the 87T main gear.

I doubt any of the both are willing to take the extra step. :P

Why do JR need to copy Align's head geometry, is there something really special about it?

No but somehow it flies like bats from hell

I'm a hard hirobo fan but damm that ugly piece of low quality 600N flies so well compared to my evo it stinks.

Maybe someone should just graft the gear train and head components from the 600N onto something more appealing?

I suspect that most of the flying qualities of the 600N come from its low auw.

I don't know how much of a short term fashion this aggressive flying style is, having just returned to the hobby after a couple of years break I find the choice in 50 size machines so difficult, so much emphasis is placed on these flying qualities but is it what the masses want?

I honestly wish I was capable of that flying style, it must be great to have that much control of the machine but so often I watch flying like this and whilst its impressive when you know how hard it is I have also heard many people say just how boring it is to watch for any period of time.

I really want to see a 50 size helicopter come out with some quality and style about it but with the rawness toned down just a little to appeal to those of us that don't want a plastic framed machine like the Sceadu or Raptor but also not an expensive, overly complicated, heavy machine like the 50 size Fury.

For me, the 600N doesn't inspire me, I'm sure that the Vibe will but I hope it isn't a failure because it doesn't have enough rawness to satisfy the majority who desire this?

The ETA on HH dealer site for the Vibes has just changed to 3/7 from 3/3 - I think that's a good sign - it didn't go right to April.

You're probably the only 'person' in this thread that might actually appreciate this heli for what it (should) be.

Maybe, also I suspect Rbush.

If the 600N represents the pinnacle of the average pilots desire today then there is no need for any other machine, the cost of producing the 600N at a significantly higher quality level would price it out of the market I suspect.

I'm a bit of a heli snob and would like to see a good quality modern machine produced by one of the more established names, I just feel better owning an Hirobo or JR machine, its the way I am and its a bit silly but its what I feel happiest with.

I just wonder how many pilots actually need the aggressiveness of the 600N and how many just get swept along with the fashion (if that's what it is).

I have no serious critiscm of the 600N or Align, I think they have done a lot for the hobby but when I build their helicopters there is always that intangible something missing for me, they just don't feel like a JR, Hirobo, Robbe, Graupner, MA or even TT machines.

Sadly none of those companies have a competitive 50 size machine to sell right now - for me anyway.

The Vibe will be it though I'm sure. If Hirobo could produce the Sceadu Ex at £600 I would have one of those but they can't.

On a serious note and just for the 'record' i agree 100% with every word in you're statement.

And have moved more in to the 90 class chassis, for the reasons you mention.

If they could bring out a 50 with the classy feel of a 90 I would buy it.

I liken owning a 600N to having an ugly girlfriend, it does everything fantastically and with bags of enthusiasm, cheap to go out with, needs a little more make-up and touching up through the day, ages badly, you feel slightly embarrassed walking down the street with her and you definately don't want your mates to find out!

Of course the stunner comes with her own problems, but ultimateley preferable in my opinion!

ok, the ugly girlfriend was the last straw.

I'm still laugthing my a** off

Now dead seriously... I honestly won't mind if the vibe is a little slower/more stable or less agressive than the 600N.

I'm not a 3D basher freak. I dropped the superstubz although they gave a insane and quick flip/roll rate and went the V-paddles route just to enjoy the stability and tracking during wide open maneuvers. My 600N is a tad slower than it used to be and I don't regret it at all!

Now one thing is a LITTLE slower and another thing is feeling ALOT more slower. My evo is a fine machine but for instance, in simple maneuvers like tic tocs, I can almost hear myself begging "please, please push your fat a** over" and I feel the full weight of the 3800gr mine has at my gimbals.

Of course, I can let my evo in any position, light up a cig, get a cup of coffee and when I return its still there waiting for me... try that on a 600N lol

As I said Tony, I think it will all depend on auw and 620mm blade availability.

I'm sure the auw will be more or less there, it will be the right 620mm blades that will make or break the machine for many people.

And, I was dead serious about the ugly girlfriend, I just can't cope with owning a 600N out of sheer embarassment, its really silly, I bought a 600N out of desperation but it really doesn't feel right!

yeah I can understand that.

I went with a freya when everyone had a raptor and the trexes are spreading way too much for my taste. I need an exclusive machine again

I think it will come down to do you like what you are flying or do you just like flying?

I need to like the machine. Flying is just a part of the whole fun. Check out my gallery on http://www.skynetlabs.org (galeria de imagens -> aeromodelismo) you will see

Yes, I have seen already.

Then, I think the Vibe 50 is the only glimmer of hope in the world of 50 size helicopters for you, me and Rbush!

I really think that any small loss in pure aggressiveness will be more than compensated for in pure beauty whilst carrying out those maneuvers at a slightly slower pace - at least we will have more time to look at it!

true but I hope JR doesn't "overdo" it and bring us a FAI/F3C machine

Now what we need is an exploded view of it with part numbers. Any factory pilot/JR distributer out there with such a thing?

I need to order two extra radio trays with my vibe (only the horizontal G10 plate). I need to do a "sandwich/drawer" for my lipo so I can swap it out without removing the rx.

Thx

Tony

PS - Hey Mac_man, love the new Macgregor site. Almost made me want to move over to JR... "almost"
