Things have gone quiet. I have some new info. JS gas been around for 13 years and has continued to show great quality and innovation. The more we have all researched, the TZ is proving not to be a clone and on fact is very different than the Vibe 50. As for Audacity, the are a good player, but will need support to pull through the economic times. I think the owner is crazy taking JR over JS or TT, but he is entitled to his opinion.

I will add one bit, JS has helped this hobby greatly by driving machine prices down and making other manufacturers take note. I personally think there is a made in China resentment, but the reality is that China will remain and grow as a manufacturing powerhouse. My company builds in China, Europe, and the USA. I will say that while China has been behind in quality operations, the Chinese are very proud people and they have changed greatly with respect to quality. JS is a leader in China quality goods and despite what some people think, their product is a winner. For those that think the JS machines are cheap, buy a TZ-50 and fly it for a while. Then come back to us. My machines have held up superbly with over 100 flights. My JR Voyager requires far more work to keep in top shape and about ever 10 flights needs something tweaked or replaced. In fact, the Voyager has flow 3x since the JS TZ-50's entered my fleet. The Raptor has flown 20 times. The Fury and the rest have been hanger queens.

If your Fury is a hangar queen, then this is your personal decision, as it has nothing to do with their ability or reliability.

Alfred,
Oh you are very correct on my decision to hanger queen the Fury. Don't get my wrong I love the Fury. It's just that the TZ-50 has been so much fun and with no concerns if I crash. I will be disraught if I dumb thumb crash the Fury. Really distraught.
I actually bought the Fury more for aerial photography and I have eased from that until the FAA gets the rules together.
So no digs on the Fury's flying ability. I added comments about my other heli's to emphasize fun with the TZ-50.
