I was all over this thing until I saw the weight (1.8Kg)
Does that help?

(Still a gourgeous heli. And, with the right battery will be a killer, I'm sure... Now, that didn't help, did it?)

Vibe 500
Forget that Overpriced kit

if you want a better flying kit for 1/2 the $$$...then look at the Hc 500 ....made by HDX...

I have been flying one and it KICKS AS$....I like it much more than my trex 500 ....

it kind of looks like the Vibe 500 also

The new Vibe is a nice machine but it is heavy which means short flight times. From the vids I have seen, it is PLENTY faaaaast and flies like a much larger bird but for only 3 minutes. Who wants to fly for 3 minutes?..........Ron

man you guys have some really cool LHS, you should feel lucky.around here all they have is ALIGN and E-flight,and its all the same parts and accesories.nothing wrong with that its just boring,every hobby shop that is local has EXACTLY the same things in stock.if its not a t-rex or a blade series they look at you funny.there is one store about 45 min away that has a few things but not kits from many different manufacturers

actually on second thought this may be agood thing$$$$$$$$$$$$$

^^^^ I agree with fenderstrat.

Ya'll are lucky to have an LHS like that. The LHS here mainly stocks e-Flite for helis. Occasionally they get a TT Raptor 30v2 or a T-Rex 450, but that's not often. They can, however, order parts for TT, Hirobo, Align, Heli-Max, Venom, and e-Flite if they don't have them in stock.

fenderstrat's second point would also be my case. I'd be having the repo man knocking at my door . I'm almost there anyway with my helis (I now have 8 in a matter of 2 years, only 4 of which are actually flyable at the moment, 1 has no motor or electronics, 1 has been crashed and stripped of it's gear for heli #8, and the other 2 have been crashed), and I don't need no excuse to get that many more.

Fender,
That isn't so bad either. My LHS only carries heli fuel. However, they always tell me.. well, we can order it for you. Heck!.. I can order it my damn self.. LoL

In regards to the Vibe.. If you really want it.. get it! It really doesn't matter what everyone says because at that point only yours matter. Chances are, if you didn't get it yet.. you don't want it bad enough IMO. Like everyone says.. there are allot of helis out there to chose from that's a little more reasonable in price.

Consider yourself stopped, I was there at 5pm today and it wasn't there! Or, maybe you came back and bought it?

Yep, we have the best hobby heli shop on the planet (rcheliworks of course). So I say support your local hobby shop and buy that Vibe! Of course I'll need to give it a few test flights this weekend if you do. Don't forget your club membership discount, that more than makes up for the high cost.

The closest hobbie store (that has heli's and parts) around here is at least a 2 hour drive. Thank goodness for the internet.

you are extremely lucky. My hobby shop is lucky if they have heli fuel. Outside of that the word heli is non-existant there

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

I am not sure if I feel relived or sad...
man you guys have some really cool LHS, you should feel lucky.
Yes we are REALLY lucky to have RcHeliWorkz as our LHS.
He has FULL support for MANY Heli brands plus airplanes, tons of r/c car and truck stuff, heck he has even started on the 1/5 scale HPI baja stuff too! I am to blame for that one

We have two funflys here this year a lot of guys come just to eat at my restaurant, Opps I meant to see Chris's shop...LOL. I really should take some pics and put them in my gallery....

Now I just want to know who got the Vibe 500e???
RSM was it you?
Nashville did you call up and have him put it behind the counter?
Double Springs do you "know" its gone cause you have it?
Fastsrt or Tfoutch? Someone come clean!!!!
Or let me guess was Randy in town today?
