No main blades included.

Plastic T/R blades are included along with paddles.

Look in my gallery for a step by step photo build.

Kevin,

as stated before, no main blades are included.

I don't think you're going to find much in the way of "build threads" on th Vibe, because it really is a heli that is designed for experienced pilots. Not saying you're inexperienced, but most people wouldn't feel the need to refer to a build thread if they had built other high end models in the past.

Hi Kevin

It comes with some K&S plastic paddles, with fly bar weights, and plastic tail blades. As stated no mains.

I have just built a Vibe 90, and on the whole it was a lovely kit to put together, my main concerns where around the flybar control arms, the quality of the skid mouldings, and the cooling fan. I simply replaced the flybar control arms with the Quick UK cage, but the original kit design is common on other 90's and would work fine if you want to send the time setting it up. The cooling fan shroud needed a fair bit of work to get it to fit around my chosen exhaust and to allow a governor sensor, this is a little at odds with the rest of the kit, but not a real problem. The skid mouldings where poor, and needed a lot or work to remove the moulding flashes, but most people would not be bothered doing this.

I have not regretted my investment in my Vibe 90 and given what I know now, it would still be at the top of my shopping list for a 90 sized model.

Chris.

I'm not sure id recommend it as a first 90, but having said that it is on the whole high quality, and the manual is nothing short of excellent.

You need to take some care with the tail gearbox attachment to the boom, and the TT/crown gear mesh.

It really doesnt need a Build thread as such, just follow the manual to the letter.
