JR Vibe 50 3D
Get To Know "JR Vibe 50 3D"
JR Heli Division innovation with design input from Curtis Youngblood and Scott Gray provides pro level 3D performance at a very competitive price.
JR’s Vibe .50 was designed to provide outrageous 3D flight, but in a smaller, more affordable package.
“The Vibe 50 flies light and responsive” says John Adams. “With the stock paddles, the flip rate is crazy – so fast, that for the first time, I might dial it down a bit. And yet the hover is rock solid.”
Everything about the Vibe .50 screams performance. The sleek narrow-profile reduces drag for smoother, faster backward flight. A dual-stacked frame, similar to the 90 model, creates an exceptionally rigid structure vital for mind-bending maneuvers. Fact is, many of the drive train parts are directly from the Vibe 90, resulting in an incredibly strong 50 model. The 120/140 CCPM, so vital to precise handling, has been faithfully reproduced to assure flying qualities that will be a superb combination of precision and pizzazz. And the engine gear ration is optimized to allow the YS/OS engines to develop great horsepower.
While the new Vibe may be the most potent JR 50 heli ever, JR’s legendary quality and ease-of-operation make your Vibe a joy to build and service. Modular construction and careful engineering make the Vibe perfect for active 3D fliers. The engine drops out in a couple of minutes. Ditto for tank and tail rotor systems. As Horizon’s John Adams puts it “the Vibe 50’s awesome to work on”.
