Hypers are ok, but they sometimes can eat bearings. I still fly my Hypers, very reliable. The Vibe is a bit on the heavy side so maybe you might consider a Ys or Os 55 but then again they will break the bank. I bought a used Novarossi Rex 57 and that engine is just mental, will put the others to shame . But I bought it used, had no issues. A TT redline 53 is powerfull to, they had problems with ****ty carbs in the beginning, that seems to be solved by now, if you should get one then make sure it has the new carb. In the Moment you can make a real killing on the 50 size engines since alot of guys are switching to the bigger 55+ engines. I bought a mint Os Hyper for 60$ here on RR. Outrage , Mp5, Align Mufflers are all good from the performance and price, but they had issues with baffels breaking, should be solve to by now. If you want some thing good get a Hatori or Funtech but they are pricy.

I have 2 Vibe 50s and they both YS.50STs with Hatori SB55 Bobby Watts Specials. They have plenty of power and sell for about $159. I think the OS.50 Hyper can be had for $150.

I have two Vibes and both have the YS50. I had the OS 50 in one of them and the bearing went out after one season. Also the OS motors are messy I'm not sure why but when I switched to the YS 50 there was less fuel over the motor. I've also heard that the YS's have more torque. I also like the fact that the YS motors use the back plate pressure to pressurize the fuel tank. Using muffler pressure just puts dirty stuff in the tank.

Go with the YS 50 or 56
Never loose airspeed, altitude and ideas all at the same time.

I would want more reliablity rather than performance IF if have to suffer one for the other. OS are gret engines, but YS is finniky on plane engines. I never had heli YS engine but had quite several for planes and are kind of a pain sometimes. runs great when all is working though..is that a new heli? Oh no honey, its the same one w/different stickers.....

the 50 hyper does have nice power but the vibe is a little heavier bird. I personally wouldn't put anything besides a .55 in it.It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
