What is the expected flight time on a JR Vibe 50 NEX? The fuel tank looks small in proportion to the rest of the heli.

8 to 10 minutes depending on nitro percentage and head speed.

Sometimes I see niro helis with a "header" thank, are those part of the kits? or added afterwards to allow more fuel to be stored?

The purpose of the header tank is to prevent the fuel clunk from ever coming out of the fuel. As long as t he header is full your good to go inverted or whatever. I does also give you a little longer flight time.

On my Vibe 50 with an OS 50 my timer is set for 8:00 minutes w/o a header tank. Recently installed a YS60, but haven't had a chance to break it in yet.
