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 drivetrain 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 ratio 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.”

The more you look into the Vibe, the more you’re going to want one.
