Vibe 90, Avant Aurora, Blitz Avro, Miniature Aircraft, ect. ect.

It all depends on how big your wallet is. Basically, if you have to ask....

Just out of curiosity, what do you fly now?

I don't believe in the words "best" in this hobby. There are many many options out there, and everyone has a personal preference. My best can be someone else's worst for any reason.

Almost all of today's heli's perform on par with each other. Give the radio to a pro, and he can make a walkera look awesome.

I completely agree with you. I do have to point out that some fly better than others, mainly the pattial list on my post. But yes, I agree, "best" is subjective and mostly based on the skill of the pilot.

Best is what YOU like. For whatever reason. Price, availability of parts, price of parts, local support, flying characteristics, etc.

Most every name brand heli on the market flies fine.

But fir me, right now, the Vibe 50 is the best.

A properly set-up, lightweight 90 will outperform anything out there. On the other hand, a properly set-up, lightweight 50 will come so close that the difference will be really hard to tell. The real difference will be the price tag.

On the hands of a good pilot, you will not notice a difference. On your hands and mine, who knows what will happen?

So then again, skill comes into play. Also the size of your wallet.

I'm still waiting for an answer to this question.

I agree, 90 is better power to weight. But costs more, parts cost more, and burns more fuel.

my best helicopter for 3d flight


A friend of mine brought me a JK 6ch 450 helicopter. It can fly perfect 3d. It's amazing to fly it. My friend said it is a new brand in the market and it is very cheap. Maybe i will upload the pictures or videos of it some day. It is really a good model.

The Vibe 90 is nice, but the upcoming Vibe 90 Scott Gray will be simply amazing. The Synergy N9 or Avant Aurora are also super machines. The Trex 700 is very good. Lots of good choices.

I am sticking with a 50 for now. Most flights per gallon of fuel, and blades and parts are cheaper. I really like my Vibe 50.
