Building the Vibe 50 NEX

Jun 29, 2011 No Comments by

Whether it’s their electronics or helicopters, if it has the JR label on it that means it’s the best you can get in both quality and performance. And now JR has recently released their new Vibe 50 NEX helicopter, and again it sets the new standards in quality and performance. This Vibe 50NEX is certainly the most potent performer in the JR line of 50 size helicopters, with many of its design features handed down from its big brother, the Vibe 90SG. And its quality and ease of operation make it a joy to build and service. This is the type helicopter you will enjoy building, taking it to the flying field so everyone can see it perform, and even just to clean it between flights.

Everything about the JR Vibe™ Fifty NEX screams performance. A dual-stacked carbon frame, similar to the Vibe 90SG, creates an exceptionally rigid structure vital for stick-bending maneuvers. In fact, features like metal blade grips, red anodized parts, and 3-color pre-painted fiberglass canopy make the NEX the new standard for JR heli’s.

Modular construction and careful engineering make the Vibe 50NEX perfect for active 3D fliers. Easy access to the fuel tank and quick removal of the engine make routine maintenance a snap.

Standby for more on it’s construction in the coming days.
