Everything about the JR® Vibe 50™ NEX flybarless heli screams performance. With its newly designed flybarless rotor head, and a dual-stacked carbon frame, similar to the Vibe 90SG, JR heli engineers have created an exceptionally nimble and rigid machine to tackle the most extreme stick-bending maneuvers. In fact, many of the NEX design features were handed down from its big brother the Vibe 90SG heli. Features like metal blade grips, red anodized parts and three-color pre-painted fiberglass canopy make the NEX model the new standard for JR helis.

While the new Vibe 50NEX FBL model may be the most potent JR 50 heli ever, its quality and ease of operation make it a joy to build and service. Modular construction and careful engineering make the Vibe 50NEX heli perfect for active 3D fliers. Easy access to the fuel tank and quick removal of the engine make routine maintenance a snap.

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