I received my Night Vapor this weekend and have flown it everyday. I really enjoy the slow flight characteristics of this plane. I can easily speed it up with an increase in power and some elevator trim when I feel like it but mostly I just fly it slow and thread it between the pine trees in my yard. Compared to the Uberlites it seems I need to give it a bit more up elevator to maintain altitude but nothing drastically different. The Uberlites look ubercool but the NV has those sweet lights. Both are fun planes. The best part of owning both is that my son and I can fly them in our front or backyard. I think I'll take the NV out after my next meeting ends.
My son and I have enjoyed flying together the past week. I picked up an Uberlite with just the biplane wing so we've finally flown two planes at the same time. I wish I can say we've flown the Firebird Stratos and SC at the same time but my son isn't quite comfortable with the Firebird yet. I think he just needs more stick time with the Uberlites to build up his confidence.
