Building the Vibe 50 NEX Cont.

Jul 16, 2011 No Comments by

The Vibe 50 NEX is a true kit taking 15 – 20 hours to build. And not only did I get to know this fine helicopter, the build was a fun time because everything is CNC machined to a perfect fit. Assembling each part gave me an appreciation for the quality and overall design features of the helicopter. And when finished, I have a helicopter that is second to none in quality, looks and performance. The fully adjustable head also makes this a very versatile helicopter, enabling anyone to progress from novice to expert without investing in upgrade components. Here are some photos of the finished components that speak for themselves.

Stand by for initial test flight reports in a few days.
