I am getting board with my vibe 50, I keep flying it but there is never anything to do to it, I like tinkering with my heli's, but nothing wants to wear out on this thing. I find myself replacing the fuel tubbing to offten because I feel guilty for not doing anywork on it.

I should have hung on to My trex 600 so I would have something to do in my shop, That thing always kept my buisy.

Do proctologists chew there finger nails when there nervouse?

Funny, my T-Rex 600NP is not keeping my busy even after 246 flights. I did the same thing as you, changed my fuel tubing and for the hell of it I also changed the main blades...even with these blades I couldn't fix tracking because it was spot on.

I have had t adjust and fix little stuff a lot on the Vibe I have. It has always been stupid stuff like the Hex shaft not staying in the right spot on the start shaft but it seems to be ok now. Overall a great machine though.........Ron

I have the same problem and keep looking for something wrong with mine and there rarely is. If you want to putz with something just get another heli.

The only thing I have to repeatedly is adjust the main mast collar... it seems to keep sliding up the shaft a bit. I wonder if my torque between the two screws is out of whack. Other than that... I get to spend a lot of time cleaning it... that's it.

Whoops... forgot... I changed a glow plug!

Here are some other spring maintenance suggestions:

Inspect/replace all tubing + clean your fuel filter (unconnect and back flush)

Undo the Tail & Main rotor to clean, inspect & regrease the
thrust bearings.

Check/replace your gyro 2-sided foam pads.

If you use rubber bands to help secure the electronics - replace them.

Replace your glow plug.

Yes I know, nothing in there to jump around but you & your V50 will feel good afterworth

the vibe needs new head dampeners every 100 flights but that is about it.

Not if you use the MA x-cell one piece dampers. They last forever it seems.

Your welcome to come to Copenhagen and do maintenance on my fleet - plenty to do. Also our club sees a crash or two each day, so we're really in need of a mechanic v
