Parts for the Vibe 50
Been looking at this heli from it's introduction until present,why have these replacement parts doubled and tripled.It makes no sense and its turning my attention to other brands.The swash was $37.99 now it's $105.99!! Main-Frames $48.99 now $99.00!!Fuel Tank $11.99 now$24.99!! Q: How does JR justify these increases?? Nice Helicopter but these price increases are insulting.

It's called Price Gouging
It's not due to inflation
It's not due to currency fluctuations
Or a need to bolster sagging margins...

There is no justifiable excuse. If there where, the other heli manufactures would be doing the same thing and they are not. This is going to hurt the Vibe market as well as JR and Horizon. I have already switched all my business that I can to other non JR/Horizon venders. Anybody that states that it is ok and they will pay what ever it cost just to get a Vibe part is in the minority and will not be able to support JR and Horizon.

Somehow I don't think a few price increases are going to put Horizon or JR out of business.

My Vibe 50 files great and I wouldn't trade it for any other 50 on the market today.

If you want cheap prices, cheap quality, and zero customer service there are plenty of options available.

Which post are you referring to because I can not find that your statments relate to any othere post listed? Nobody said anything about JR going out of business or wanting cheap quality and zero customer service.

Now you have it right. I stated hurt not put them out of business.

I would hate to see that happen to the Vibe.

No matter how good the quality is a person has to interject a little common sense in what is and is not a reasonable price increase.

I am done with this subject.

If you don't like it, buy elsewhere or something else. It's called free enterprise. So many now days think they are entitled. JR and Horizon are not a government subsidized agency. Nor are they part of TARP as is GM.

Where's the incentive to buy this Helicopter is the point??Everybody and their second cousin,in every kind business,producing everything you can think of,is offering some kind of discount to attract consumers in these economic times.JR knows this model has hit it's economic peak and its time to cash-out! Its a dirty-stategic business maneuver against the loyal-fan base of Vibe 50 owners!Some things are just wrong and this is one of those things.
I wanted to buy one of these and Im really pissed at this!!!
