I got some in my gallery.

2-Airskipper50
1-RJX Hurrican(airskipper clone)CF everything though
1-Vibe50
1-Vibe90

It is 3D capable, but more F3C style. I get alot of compliments on how it tracks really nice. I like it. Great agressive sport heli to mild 3D. Nothing spectacular in electronics. 9252's all around. I also converted one to an E-airskipper running on 10s.

Since the Vibe50 came out, I have been using my airskipper airframes for scale builds. I also like that some of the airskipper parts are used on the Vibe50 as well.

Enjoy....

I am finishing up my airskipper that I built over the winter. I am no 3-d flyer so maybe it will work great for me. It sure looks good .

I have both the Airskipper 50 and the Vibe 50. I stripped the Airskipper 50 for the engine and all electronics so I can get the Vibe 50 flying. However, after flying the Vibe 50 for about a months, I quickly missed the Airskipper. I got all new electronics and revived my Airskipper. The Airskipper still flys very well. It's not that responsive, however it's very stable and predictable.

thanks,

The Airskipper is a great ship. I have mine set up on mechanical mixing and it smooth. I am even considering another one, the CE version.

Also the Airskipper Type II differs with the Vibe 50 with the Canopy, upper part of the frame (Elevator servo and lever are in the front side and aileron and pitch in the rear side), the swash plate is a combination of metal and plastic, and different clutch pinion case. Jr already released a new canopy for the AS Type II that is basically the same Vibe 50 Fiber canopy but instead of the logo "Vibe 50" it has an "Air Beak" http://kobayashi.heteml.jp/modules/...cle&storyid=101
There is a new AS Type II carbon frame version already released and I saw in the Japanese Jamboree held on this Sunday, a new version T2 pro full carbon and full metal with a new canopy design (same shape as the Vibe 50) that maybe it will be release in june but I'm not sure

Heres a couple shots of my airskipper. A couple more pics in my gallery. I really like it but I havent flown to many other 50 nitros. Im running DS1015's for the cyclic G770 and 8900G on the tail. I also have the CE head and quick uk swash. Plus some other misc. stuff.

It looks like, but the frame and servo geometry is a bit different. Also is full carbon, the rotor head is full metal and the tail is belt driven...

I have an AS50CE. Flys very well, but probably too stable when learning. As soon as I try something a bit more responsive like a TRex, my flying gets even worse.Proficient at turning cash and credit into smoke and noise!
