Can this heli be upgraded to FBL ? Instead of selling this nice chopper I thought I might just stick a bigger engine in it and go FBl.. Any advice..

Can someone post a link to the jr conversion items I will need?

JRP996405 was the JR part number for the Vibe 50 FBL head. It is no longer available. Most just used the RJX 50 size FBL head and modify the links.

I have a brand new never used JR FBL head and swash from the current Vibe 50/E 8 that is not required as I am using the MB351 3 blade head. Let me know if you are interested. It is very pretty (red and black).

I assume so. It is 120 ccpm. Check out the jr website Vibe 50 pictures as they may shed a bit of light on it. I'm not sure of the differences. I can't imagine much would have changed.

There is an FBL Kit. You may be able to get it from Horizon, if not contact RCJapan. Hopefully with JRs new American operations, you can check with them as well. You could do a third party head as well (RJX or Compass).

The vibe 50 and the 50 NEX use the same swash and head if that helps any.....

You have great servos for FBL same as mine. Fly bar is just as fun as FBL and also cheaper and a bit simpler electronically. If you're on a good thing stick with it.
