To say electric helis are everywhere these days is a bit of an understatement. Electric helicopter performance and popularity is on a level now that is unprecedented in the history of RC. And with the demand for more power and potential comes the demand for a heli platform that can handle it.
Enter the Vibe 500E. JR's latest foray into electric helicopter design has the benefit of drawing on years of glow heli development, producing a platform built from the ground up to dominate. The design is all new, and was conceived with one goal in mind—being the smoothest, most precise electric helicopter available. Features like the belt-driven tail, aluminum head and tail assemblies plus more, make precision and smoothness a possible reality. The result is a connection between you and your heli that feels like nothing you've ever flown before.
