Next plane after vapor?
 
I've pretty much mastered the vapor. What should be my next mico? Would like one with ailerons.

Skip the micro. Buy a used T-28.

Are you wanting another plane to fly in your family room or outside in the wind?

If you've mastered a stock Vapor, put in a J-3 motor and a good battery and actually have some fun.

If you want something to fly in a larger area than a Vapor needs, but still has Trees and houses, the micro T-28 is a good 4 channel trainer

The um 28 is next best um, but the bigger 28 is easier to fly.

Maybe easier to fly in the wind, but there are very few 4 channel planes easier to fly than a UM T-28.

To Fly a Full sized T-28 I'd have to drive 4 miles minimum to find a suitable place to fly. To fly a UM T-28, I just walk out my front toor and take off from the sidewalk.

If you live in the country or have ready access to an official flying field with a paved runway, the larger plane is a better value, but if you don't, the UM makes more sense.
