Now this is interesting. Mine has the Hypergrips, and whether or not they improve performance or are just bling, you that have flown her both ways
I flew my Vibe a LOT with the stock grips and then I have flown it a LOT with the hyper grips. I found the hyper grips make the heli noticeably more responsive, on both collective and cyclic. Also, it feels more precise in agressive manuevers. With the bigger disk that the hyper grips give you it also flys a bit more stable and a little more like a bigger heli.

I agree 100%
the Hypergrips are so much wider you get more disk and stability out of her.

OK. If I want to put the Hyper Grips on Vibe50, do I use the stock spindle shaft?

No, The hypergrips come with a "hyper spindle". You have to use the hyper spindle because the thrust bearing is in between the radial bearings on the hyper grips. On the stock grips, the thrust bearing is obviously on the outside of the radial bearings and the spindle is machined down to 6mm (I believe) for the thrust bearing. You just buy the hyper grips and if you use the hyper ring dampers then it all goes together just like the stock head. Mine didnt come with spindle bolts so I used some for a vibe 90. (5mm and the stock bolt is 4mm)

The only thing that I noticed that I dont like about the heli after the hyper grips is I dont have enough power for really hard moves like 4 point tic tocs and other constant load moves. They are do-able but you have to be tuned very well and be carefull with the collective. This is no doubt because of the increased disk size. Plus I use 610 blades and it is just a little too much for my "over the hill" hyper. The 56SR should take care of this problem.

I use to use the Rotortech 610 blades but found they load the motor more than the 600SB's.Since the disc is bigger have you tried taking some pitch out to maake up for the extra length.

I dont want to take out pitch. I like the way the "pop" is now. It carries the pitch pretty god at full climb out. Just 4 point tic tocs and big sky stuff are killin me. My hyper is tired also, it needs a ring. (300 flights)

The thing i found out about the OS engines was they didnt keep their power very long,they were great while they were new but started losing power pretty quick.The YS seems to hold onto their power longer than the OS.

Ok so when are these new 50 motors from YS & OS coming out???

(Btw, I'm sure everybody probably knows this but YS & OS are the initials of the two brothers who own the company, Yuichi & Osimoto Sunimora)

Time to revive an old thread...

I have a 600NSP and a V3D. Yes they are different and fly different (uhhh... DUH!!!). Both have 50 Hypers. My 600 is all pop while my V3D is all precision and tracking.

Question: those of you who have put either the OS55 and/or YS56 into your Vibe 50's.. was it worth the $$$???

The Vibe flies so great; but I always thought she could benefit from a bit more "ooomph" in the motor dept to truly realize her potential (I'm not talking about FBL here; that's a whole 'nother thread).

What's the verdict on a cost-benefit basis???

This is really a no brainer. Of course a big bore 50 will vastly improve the Vibe. Actually, the Vibe with such a robust design all around is one of the best able to handle the extra power. For serious power go with the NR57. The OS55 runs better at lower head speeds but not as powerful.

Ok, let me pose the question this way: those of you who have 1] been flying a Hyper 50, and 2] then installed either a 55 or a 56 (regardless of pipe used):

Was the improvement in how the Vibe flies worth the $300 price for whichever motor??

Thanks.

Its not only the 300$ for a new motor, you also would have to get a new pipe for it to work properly so it will be around 450$

it made a pretty good difference in mine but not as big as I thought, I've probably only got 3/4 gallon through mine though. I've also tried mp5, hatori 50 and now mp5 sb, so far the sb is the best but I think it could really do a lot better with a better pipe so going to try the new outrage.

Thanks for the input merlin. I fly a MP5SB on my Hyper and I am quite happy with it. Beginning of the year I bought a Outrage and it performed well but after 15 flights the baffel broke and my Hyper overheated and got damaged. I was quite pissed , becasue I later heard it s not unusual with the outrage pipes. So in the end I bought a new Hyper and a MP 5 SB. It probably does not have as much power but I find it very easy to tune and probably the baffel will bever brake !

That's a lotta dough... could do a lot of things with it. Even FBL, though I love the Vibe head.

My fav heli to fly is a TRex 600 GF (cheap one) with a Vibe head on 12S. Things rocks the free world! More power than any 90, but tracks better than a 700.

Just gotta decide where you wanna throw your cash.

Personally, I'm gonna fly my 50 until it won't run any more. Prices are sure to come down on the 55s by then. If you pull a perfectly good 50 out in favor of a 55 you are throwing cash away.
