Like the original Vapor® aircraft, the Night Vapor™model is slow enough and light enough to fly in a living room, a basement or even the conference room at work. To this amazing slow flight performance, it adds the fun of LED lights that allow you to fly in the dark. It also features a new modular design that makes replacement of broken parts quicker and easier. Best of all, you can have the Night Vapor RTF flying in as little time as it takes you to charge its battery.
Purchased a RTF Vapour today and within a very short time was out front flying. Definately not for any amount of wind, but with a very very slight breeze was very responsive and displayed great flying abilities. Used to fly gas planes long ago. This whole electric thing now is great. Easy to operate and less after purchase costs.
very good but over priced
Bad in wind
I have never been successful with RC planes mostly because things happen too fast and it's easy to get the controls mixed up while maneuvering. This plane is slow enough for me to start "getting it" and the configuration of the lights make it very easy to understand the plane's direction and attitude in the dark. The battery lasts a surprisingly long time, and with spares handy I can get enough "stick time" to really see my skills improve. In the first couple of days of flying I put my Night Vapor in the trees several times, but was able to free it by shaking the branch; and with NO damage to the plane (or trees)!!! It is a little pitch sensitive for my liking, but maybe that's necessary for indoor flying, I don't know. The best flying is done in dead calm air.
It's so much fun if you put a Sukhoi propeller on it! Expensive and motor mounts break...but easy to repair with super glue. Buy buy buy, it's worth it for your first plane. Fly at the baseball field!
This is a great plane to learn on. It flies slow enough that you can get the hang of it before you try a faster one. Try flying it on the ground first to get used to directional control. Especially coming towards yourself. After you can drive it around on the floor, try taking off. Throttle back and take it easy. Slow and easy movement and you'll get the hang of it quick. Awesome plane for all phases of learning.
This thing is so cool, a little on the expensive side, but worth it if you are learning to fly. If you are a beginner, however, you would be better off getting the Champ. It’s super durable, takes a beating, it’s fun and 50 bucks cheaper. The Night Vapor is durable, but a few background flying skills would greatly extend the life of the Night Vapor. It is delicate.
This is a great trainer aircraft. This was a great purchase and definitely worth the $129.99. It flies very well. It has good handling and is very maneuverable, and the LED lights make it even more enjoyable. It's funny to see at night because it looks like a UFO because of the lights and how quiet it is. Anyway, it's very fun. It will take you only about 10-15 minutes to get the basics. After about 3 hours, I was flying it really well. Your main concern is probably the durability or battery life. Let me tell you that it is HIGHLY durable. I really don't know how you can break this thing. The only way to break it is if you go at full power straight towards the ground. Don't listen to those reviews that say that it's fragile. The battery life is decent. I would recommend purchasing a few larger batteries. It gets about 5-6 minutes of charge if you utilize the throttle correctly. (Hint: don't keep it at full power, this decreases battery by about 3 minutes.) The only thing I would have to say about this aircraft is that it's not very good in the wind due to how light it is. Don't get me wrong, this is how all RC aircrafts behave. Don't just not buy it because of that reason. The wings are slightly fragile because of their construction. This is a highly recommended aircraft. I hope this helps. If you have any doubts about this aircraft, get rid of them and buy it. You won't be disappointed. One tip I would give to someone who purchases this aircraft for the first time is this: practice. Once you get good, you will be able to shut the engine off in mid-air and glide it in. This is a good technique in the event that your aircraft runs out of battery mid-air. This is unlikely, but it may happen. This is not the aircraft's fault; it's just that the battery died. When the battery dies, there is always enough left to be able to steer it and control the height of it (rudder and elevators). Lastly, I would like to say that I am not currently flying this aircraft due to the cold, snowy, and icy Ohio weather. Otherwise, I would be flying it. I would have flown it yesterday, but it was way to wet outside. Anyway, you know the saying "Practice makes perfect!" So get out there and start flying this bad boy! Good luck!
This plane is just too much fun! It can fly almost any where you can think of. The only downside is that the props tend to be a little fragile and tend to break after a couple of crashes. The other thing is that the replacement props are sometimes not good. I bought 2 the other day and one was bent out of line and the hole that you put the prop shaft into was stripped so I had to go buy another one. Other than that this plane is awesome. Its so much better than the first vapor! Go HORIZON and go HOBBYZONE!
LED lights come installed with the replacement airframe.
